    Question virginize 1.0.2 US iPhone > restore 1.1.2 > activate and use a german t-mobile sim

    I am using an US iPhone with firmware 1.0.2. Because i like to use visual voicemail
    I want to do the official activation via t-mobile.

    I do not know if it is possible to switch my existing t-mobile contract to an iPhone
    contract without buying an iPhone. But this is not the question here.

    I like to know if after i virginized the US iPhone actual running 1.0.2 and installed 1.1.2,
    is it then possible to activate this phone via official process and use it with german t-mobile sim?

    Thanx in advance for all comments and answers

    You have to at least upgrade your contract to one of those special iphone contracts to use the official activation.

    Yes, that's right. Actually I do not know if it is possible to upgrade the contract without
    purchasing an iPhone.

    But why do you like to downgrade it. I think at the moment this is only necessary if you like to use a sim that is not from t-mobile. Because unlocking 1.1.2 that is installed
    on german iPhones is not approved to be save from dev team.

    I am not sure if anything of the hacking may make it unpossible to go through
    official activation. Second I am not sure if sim lock for t-mobile is part of 1.1.2
    that can be downloaded or if it is part of hardware. Then - because I have an US iPhone -
    it might be impossible to use a german t-mobile card.

    Then I have to wait until unlock for 1.1.2 is ready.

    I fully agree, I already referred to the T-Mobile Germany activation in a different thread. It is NOT possible, I tried with three different T-Mobile contract SIMs (two business, one private, no pay per call without contract) and the activation process starts (iPhone and T-Mobile SIM are recognized by iTunes to be valid for starting the activation process) but iTunes sort of connects to the T-Mobile server and looks for a valid iPhone contract for the specific SIM card, which of course doesn't exist.

    Meaning: you can buy a T-Mobile iPhone in Germany and switch it to your current SIM but you can't just use a US iPhone and officially switch it to a T-Mobile SIM card. Sorry.
