    Default Iphone 3G from Hongkong

    Hi everybody,

    I'm in Indonesia, my friend just bring me a iphone 3g which bought in hongkong and the seller said is official unlocked but after insert my Indonesia simcard in it. It got no signal at all I connect it to itune nothing happen except it said a newer software available is 2.2.1 should I upgrade it will fixed the problem? Sorry, I'm really new about this iphone stuff . What I want to ask it how can I know it is really a official unlocked iphone or my friend is manipulated by the seller. Please any master of iphone can help me out. And one more stupid question what is the benefits between official unlock and jailbreak. Cheers

    Hi

    Don't update to 2.2.1 because if it not factory unlocked you want be able to use yellowsn0w.

    Look HERE for your 3G's (MB) part number and see if it matches a factory unlocked country

    If it doesn't you've been mislead

The link you give me is for Iphone 2G but my iphone is 3G will it work, you said "Then as long as your baseband is 02.28.00 use yellowsn0w to unlock" how can I check it out, should I using the itune to restore to factory default before doing the jailbreak, thanks a lot because my place is a realy small town, if I mess this up I should have to go very far to get someone to fix it for me, so please I realy need more information, thanks you very much.

    Look in Settings/General/About to see if the Modem Firmware version 02.28 or not also look at the Manage/Packages in Cydia to see if Yellowsn0w is already installed.

    If you have Cydia on the phone your don't really need to jailbreak again as its already done, just look in Cydia to see if yellowsn0w is installed.

    Yes its needed to have an unlock.

    Try turning Airplane Mode On & Off because thats been known to make the signal work again.
