Just Brought iPhone Back, Help Unlock For Canada Today Is Sept 28, Please Help!
Please please read everything below, thank you very much, I appreciate it!
Ok please bare with me, I really need help here. I am from Ontario, Canada. I just drove accross the border and bought 2 iphones and brought them back to canada, 1 is for me and 1 is for my dad. I tried to go and get these as soon as possible as I wanted to get them unlocked to work on our rogers network here before they released update 1.11 or 1.03 or whatever they call it.
Now today is Friday Sept 28 2007 and I see alot of posts about this new firmware and how it will break the unlock but im not sure if people are just talking about the update still or if its actually been release yet.
Can someone help me please by answering just a couple quick questions. Ok what should I do, starting from scratch? I have my brand new iphone here in an un-opened box. It is Sept 28 2007 and im on a windows computer. I downloaded a copy of the 1.02 firmware for the iphone. Im in Ontario, Canada and need to get this working on my Rogers Cell Network.
I know I have to first Activate it, then JailBreak It, Then Unlock it. Is it still possible for me todo this right now or do I have to wait for the dev team to hack the new 1.11 update first? Starting from the begining, what should I do first? Activate it? which program should I use todo this for my situation? and im on a windows pc. Then which program(s) should I use to JailBreak it and also most importantly Unlock it? And how do I do this while staying away from that 1.11 firmware update.
Keep in mind im starting from the very begining, I dont even have any version of itunes installed yet as I wanted to wait to hear from you guys, the pro's, so I dont go brick my iphone like a jerk off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, my dad and I are big apple fans and thought this would be a good project for us and that whole father son time.
Thanks again for any help, it really is appreciated!

There is no known cure to being from Ontario.

First of all, Search is your best option.
READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY. Take your time. READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY.
I too am in Ontario and have been using my iPhone on Rogers. I used this version of unlocking my iPhone:
It's step by step and pretty easy to follow. It has all the files you'll need to unlock the phone and then some. It's not the point and click AppTapp you'll find from the Dev Team, but it does give you iBrickr, which will be great for adding things like dictionaries, NES mods, games, etc...
oh and DO NOT UPDATE YOUR PHONE to the latest firmware. Stay 1.0.2 (I'm assuming your phone came to you at this level of firmware).
Once you do have it unlocked and working, make sure you have a data plan with Rogers. If not, they'll hose you. Hard.
Godspeed new iPhone user. Take care!
Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?
ok ill help you, first of all before you try anything go to emergency calls and do the following *3001#12345#* then press call and tell me what you see under firmwear version, it should be:
03.12.06_G Is firmware 1.0.0
03.14.08_G Is firmware 1.0.1 and 1.02
04.01.13_G Is 1.1.1
If yours is the last one then you are out of luck.
Where did you buy it from? Walden G?
heres a list of all the unlocking methods.........its your choice http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=7889
thanks for helping, im not sure which firmware version is on the phone currently but ill check. Both phones are at my dads house, im going there in a couple hours and will post which firmware version it is running.

And will the AnySIM 1.02 still work to unlock it using apptapp? Since it has a gui i thought it would be easier, though ill do any method you guys recomend.

Now if you have 1.0.2 already on your phone then skip this step. BUT IF YOU HAVE 1.0.1 THEN DONT RESTORE AS EXPLAINED IN THE GUIDES CAUSE ITUNES WILL GET YOU 1.1.1 !!!!
look for the 1.0.2 file on the forum, someone probably uploaded it already to ********** so you nee to get it and force itunes to install it instead of 1.1.1 on your phone.
If you close to Toronto, you can go to:

hey ok I got the 1.02 firmware file but how do I force itunes to install this firmware file instead of the 1.11 lol ??

hey this should help you!
