    Default iPhone and O2 Germany SIM

    Does anybody tried to put in a O2 Germany SIM?

    What happens?

    Is it possible to activate the phone with the sim?
    If not, is it possible to use the O2 Germany SIM after Jailbreak without using AnySIM or other Unlocking Software for the SIM Lock?

    Thanks for information?

    Won´t they release an iphone in france without simlock? Would it be possible to put the firmware on any other phone?

    I have an iphone which was delivered with 1.00 firmware.

    So i have updated through 1.0.1 - 1.0.2 and 1.1.1.

    Would it work with my iphone?
    What´s the difference to newer ones?

    Was it possible to activate the phone with any o2 sim??

    So i could activate my phone with any o2 sim and after that put my vodafone sim in it using with turbosim?

    That would be a smart way for updates

    That's what i would call early adopter then.

    So i have updated through 1.0.1 - 1.0.2 and 1.1.1.

    Yes, and 1.1.1 gives basic internationalization support (and 1.1.2 full german language support btw.).

    Was it possible to activate the phone with any o2 sim??

    Activate on which version of the firmware? 1.1.2? Not that easy as the process is quite compliated, but doable.
    On 1.1.1 it's a nobrainer.

    edit: noticed you have unlocked with Turbosim. Don't know if it's possible to upgrade with Turbosim. anySIM worked like a charm on 1.1.1 (jailbreakme.com-Method).

    I think you misunderstood me

    My question intend was to ask you if i could my phone with the o2 sim without using any hack. Just as a normal phone bought in UK and using a UK o2 sim...

    So the plan is to update my current 1.1.1 phone and after the upate just activate with my german o2 sim over itunes.

    After that i could put back my turbosim adapter with my german vodafone sim.
    That would be a way for the future not to wait, till there is a jailbreak solution..

    Is this possible to do?

    I hoped you say :YES

    But what happes if i jailbreak my phone after updating from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 and put my german o2 sim in the phone?

    Does it work without putting anysim on it?
    Or does the german o2 sim has another icid or anything different from the uk o2 sims?

    When updating to 1.1.2 you also update your baseband, which in effect relocks your iPhone again. After the possible jailbreak/activation you have an iPod touch with extended capabilities.

    I don't know if Turbosim works with 1.1.2, but there is an anySIM-based solution and the java-gui-jailbreak as well as a patched lockdownd for activation which works quite well once you have mastered all the necessary steps.
    So maybe it would be a way for you to upgrade this way and leave Turbosim out of the quotation.

    This would be a solution, but in fact TurboSIM is a very simple solution.

    So all i need to know is if TurboSIM still works with the new Baseband.

    Because if it works, i just do an update and jailbreak the phone again to get it activated.

    After that everything should still work...

    @StefanM

    Quite frankly, just wait until 1.1.2 anySIM is out.
    I am running 1.1.1 with a German o2/fonic SIM and it works just fine.
    AnySIM seems to be the largest project for unlocking the iphone and I would really stick with it. So far the dev team has done an excellent job.

    I can see why you want to have 1.1.2 (as do I) but just wait a few days until the new anySIM is released. This will work for sure and also it sounds like you're somewhat of a noob so spare yourself the "rumpfuschen" and just wait. :-)

    You might also want to take a look at this:
