    Lightbulb My eBay unlocked iPhone selling experience...

    So bought an iphone that had 1.0.2 on it. I did a HARDWARE unlock as soon as that method came out and then sold the unlocked iPhone on eBay. I simply preferred my Blackberry due to the cut and paste feature, multiple SMS, and password keeper program (otherwise I realized the iphone was better in all other ways).

    THEN, the moron who bought it upgraded the phone to 1.1.2 even though I told him not to. The result was a locked iphone with 0049 imei error. He forced me to refund his cash and take the iphone back.

    Many months later after lost paypal appeals, I receive the iphone back and anySIM is now released. Virginizer is out too. All from Installer. WOW, this way is SOOOO much easier - it's just unbelieveable!

    So I: recovery mode downgrade to 1.0.2, apptapp, activate/jailbreak, virginize, and unlock with anySIM 1.1 (amazingly easy!). Then I upgrade to 1.1.1 and re-run anySIM 1.1 (I'm not interested in upgrading to 1.1.2 - what's the difference?)

    Now I: have a 1.1.1 unlocked phone and now have multiple SMS and a password keeper program on the iPhone. It is now superior to my blackberry in every way except copy and paste.

    Needless to say, I'm keeping this iphone for sure! Goodbye Blackberry!

    Lesson learned: Don't sell a kick ass unlocked iphone on eBay. You risk wasting your time, and will just be missing out on using a darn good phone!

    ...and now I must donate.

    LOL I am sure the dev team will appreciate your donation. I am sure being a dev is an expensive venture.

    Paypal really suck like that.. The way I figure it, they got the goods, it worked for the first 5 minutes they had it.. paypal should just F.off!

    But these t00ls make them lots of money so it won't change anytime soon..
