    Default This is Strange!

    I did updating of my already activated and unlocked 1.0.2 iPhone (acyivation and unlock method unknown) by mistake. Now it turned into 1.1.1 and need activation and unlocking again. Tried to do activation using jailbreakme.com and then unlocking using anysim 1.1 (best way for 1.1.1 phones) but phone never called back after clicking appstapp install. I tried many times but no use. I thought seczone should be corrupted and IMEI should be changed to 0049*, as people say but surprisingly checked my IMEI and saw it hasn't changed and it is the same as IMEI curved at the back of the phone. Now question is if IMEI hasn't changed:

    1. what was the method for activation and unlocking in the first time?
    2. Why jailbreakme.com can't activate the phone?
    3. what should be done now to activate and unlock?
    4. can I consider my Phone as an OTB (out of the box) 1.1.1?

    this seems to have happened to a few people, my though on this is that somehow some peoples firewalls or ISP's are preventing the files from being sent by the website. try turning off the firewall or changing your settings, and even removing what ever you can from your network (eg. try to get the most direct connection to the internet possible)
    another option is go down to the library or something and try the site there.

    Because the phone had already been unlocked you would firstneed to virginize the phone. A how-to can be found here.

    esodin, virginising is only for fixing corrupted sec zone which does not seem to be the case here since his IMEI is ok and 1.1.1 loaded on alright.
    although it would not harm the device, there is no sense in mucking with something when you don't need to.
