    Hello, I have a brand new iPhone locked to Fido (Canada) which has never been activated. I bought this phone over a month ago so it probably does not have Baseband 2.30.03. I have never connected this iPhone to iTunes. Can someone give me specific instructions on how I should activate it so that the baseband stays preserved and I can run yellowsn0w to unlock it. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Well I did it all yesterday, but to no avail as I'd updated the baseband by following out of date instructions from a less than perfect web site. But from what I understand, here's what you need to know.

    For what's possible, check here iPhone Dev Team.

    You need to jailbreak to allow you to update to 2.2 but without touching the baseband. iTunes will do this for you but it updates the baseband which is what you want to avoid. So check here and follow the instructions which are not hard. iClarified. Your choice will depend on windows or mac. I'm Mac so it 3rd choice and Pwange for me. What you're basically doing is updating nearly all of the iTunes update but without touching the baseband. You do it by building a custom restore file in Pwange, which you then load onto the phone when it's in DFU mode. I chose to not to tick the Activate box, as my phone was already activated to the service provider I didn't want, and I know I'd unlock it to the service provider I did want, during the second stage by using Yellowsn0w.

    Having jailbroken it, updated to 2.2 but still with the 02.28.00 baseband, you can the unlock to your chosen service provider using Yellossn0w. Details here iClarified again.

    If your baseband is 02.30.03, you're stuffed for the moment.

    Hope that helps. I'm sure if I've got anything wrong the guys here will put me straight. As I say, I'm new to all this but feel I have a handle on what's needed.

    Regards

    Off topic a tad but FYI, I had to get my contract phone changed out at the Apple shop (dust behind screen fault). There was a notice on the desk informing customers that all iPhones would be upgraded to the new firmware before the handset was handed over 'as part of our customer service' LOL! I sat there watching the guy do the paperwork, waited until he was ready to activate and upgrade then I announced that my parking ticket was due to expire in 5 minutes and that I would really have to go NOW! Voila, handed it over and I shot off with my 2.2 baseband - phew!

    Personally, what I would have done upon discovering that it was on 2.2.1 was to return it and get a refund. (Just make up any feeble excuse). By law (kind of) they will have to take it back and refund. Then find a small O2 store and buy another from there. Its bound to be on 2.1 or 2.2 at best.
