    Default newbie...looking for some help with already unlocked iphone

    hi all,

    i have an iphone that was unlocked for use with t-mobile and given to me (i use at&t). It is operating on the firmware 1.0.2 and i tried putting in my att sim and it worked good fine just swapping sims. Is there anything I need to do in order to begin using it with att? If i hook it up to itunes on my PC will it brick? Any help, PLEASE!!! Thanks so much.

    You don't have to do anything special to use your att sim, just pop your sim in and the phone should work fine once it is unlocked. Do not update to any specific firmware unless you are sure that firmware can be unlocked. You can disable automatic updates in the Itunes preferences.
