    I don't know why you didn't just buy an o2 phone. For the sake of about 30

    hey , I have a OTB 1.12 US iphone which i successfully activated and jailbroke using the excellent guide which was posted . I would love to use a pay as you go o2 sim card , but ppl are saying that this is not possible . But my question is , why isn't it possible ? do Apple actually manufacture iphones seperately for each country . I always assumed that they would essentially manufacture the same model , ( ie all 1.12 otb phones the same ) just different versions of the software that differentiates the models between different countries.

    When i went about activating my iphone in the uk , i used an older version of itunes initially (7.3 i think ) but it said that i needed a newer version to complete the process .. but it still recognized the phone in the old version and the O2 activation page appeared in itunes . But when i upgraded to 7.5 , the activation page was AT&T like it should have been , as my phone is US 1.12 . . Sooo , i assumed that there was a way to dupe the US iphone into thinking that it is a UK version and use an O2 chip .

    sorry for the long post ,i know i may be talking complete bollocks : ) but was just wondering why a solution to this problem isn't possible ... lol

    You can use an o2 sim PayG on a jailbroken UK iphone. Restore to 1.1.1 and then upgrade. The PayG sim should then work. This information is contained in one of the stickies here in the unlocking section.

    If you agree with my post please give a thumbs up
    Likewise if you disagree, you can give a thumbs down

    My prediction on delivery date for 1.1.3 was right on the money! - Jan 15th 8 pm CET - Who doubted me?

    I live in the UK, bought a US iphone version 1.1.2, downgraded it, jailbroke, upgrade so now i have what is basically an ipod touch. i just want to confirm that i cannot use an o2 pay as you go sim with this as it is a US phone?

    Both of you should have bought a UK phone, or indeed read this forum first !

    Turbosim or indeed stealthsim may work have you have jail breaked them
    In use by my son, UK iPhone, 1.12, BL 4.06, Activated and unlocked using a O2 sim pay as you go. Not using Turbosim

    you see , the wonderful thing about the decline of the dollar against the pound was that I bought my iphone for 188 whilst it retails for 270 in the uk and currently the rate is 200 . Furthermore , with uk phones , you are guaranteed a 1.12 OTB , but with buying US iphones , there is a SLIGHT chance that it will be a week 44 or less . So cant really blame anyone for buying US instead of UK .
