    Default HELP!!! New iPhone 3G --- What Should I DO?

    Ok i have a new iPhone and I'm afraid of doing anything with it cause I'm afraid to have it bricked which results in a 600 dollar paper weight. It was bought off of Craigslist, its a white one, still sealed, locked on the ROGERS network in Canada. The thing is i will be using it in Canada and on Rogers but on a family plan along with another phone. The phone is currently sealed in box, not activated or anything. So i was hoping you guys can answer these questions for me before i do anything.

    Do i really need to unlock it?

    How would i activate it at home?

    I heard something about activating with PwnageTool how does that work?

    I know PwnageTool only works with a Mac so if i were to use my friend's Mac to do all that jailbreaking stuff do i still need PwnageTool everytime i connect the iPhone with iTunes?

    thanks in advance for answering my questions.

    If it is an official Iphone from Rogers then you should not have any problems to activate and use it provided you pay Rogers for the service.

    - You activate by using iTunes with a Rogers SIM card in the phone.
    - You don't need to unlock the phone if you want to use it with an official Apple voice/data provider.
    - Pwnagetool is used to jailbreak the phone so you can put unofficial application on it. Pwnagetool can also be used to activate an iphone if you don't have a contract with an official data/voice provider.
    - You use pwnagetool to jailbreak the phone (one time only).

    Before you do anything, read, read and read.
    Don't ruin your phone.

    ps: The unlocking tool for iphone3G will be out soon. I said you wait and don't update the firmware to 2.2. Wheter you want to unlock the phone or not, it's your choice. Note: unlocking the phone is OK and you can still use it with Rogers normally.

    I just got an iphone 3G myself locked to O2 but want to use it here in cyprus where there is no iphone support. The version is 02.11.07 which looks safe to unlock in a week from what I read.

    Now, I also read about jailbreaking before unlocking. I'm on windows so using quickpwn is not a solution(right?).

    If this is the case, how do I unlock 3G in a week? Btw, there is a card sim unlock solution coming anyday supporting 2.2 unlock.

    Thanks in advance!

    The unlock will be available via Cydia, so it doesn't matter if you're on a windows, except for the fact that they're a bad operating system, but hey, everyone else has it, right? ;-)

    As for the 2.28.00 baseband, i got a few costumers who are 'quite' happy with their rebelsimcards, i particulary like those because when they aren't needed anymore for iphones i can use them to unlock nokia's :) and i can upgrade them etc etc
    i do not endorse them, they're just an option.
