    I geuss you can't use your own sim, you have to wait for a unlock tool. It's sim-locked Do the have it on stock? I go to Geneva next Saterday but i'm afraid they are out of stock when I come

    without supported SIM-Card you even can not activate. Usually the prepaid SIM-Card is included in the price and you can get it with your passport you needed for entry - seems they have fooled you.

    good news: pownage 2.0 will support 3G activation and jailbreak
    bad news: no unlock for 3G

    is it possible to purchase more than one iPhone in switzerland?

    For instance, could i buy one in every store? Or do they check with eachother if i've purchased an iphone earlier.

    you can not buy without contract or prepaid sim. you need to identify yourself. why do you want to do this? - unlock is not possible yet.

    good news: pownage 2.0 will support 3G activation and jailbreak
    bad news: no unlock for 3G

    I bought 7 of them.... so no limit there

    Default TurboSim

    Probably the TurboSim solution will work for Swiss 3G phones?

    ZF_ says no *SIM will work.

    Only solution is: some nice guy is unsoldering the bootrom and publishing the content, then Geohotz or Musclenerd will patch the bootloader to not check integrity of Baseband updates. Then we need to find out a method to i.E. testpoint upgrade the Bootloader and then we can flash any patched baseband through the modified bootloader...

    ...this can take a while and you need to open the cover. And since the asian People do not have SIMlock they do not need to find tricks. So I think people from eastern europe will do it.

    if everything goes easy the new infinion successor of the S-Gold 2 chip will have the same security hole and let us softflash the bootloader.
