iPhone 3G - Newbie Unlock Confusion
Someone gave me an IPhone 3G that they no longer want/need. It appears to be a UK version Iphone 3G (tied to O2?) but has no SIM installed. Presently I can't get beyond 'slide for emergency'.
At some point in the future I expect to be able to get a UK O2 PAYG SIM so I don't really want to do anything that is not reversible. But in the meantime I'd like to be able to at least use the phone's features and apps via the wi-fi side of things (like an iPod touch?) or maybe use an (Irish) O2 SIM (from Tesco) that I've got laying around.
I've read and read and read and read, and am now only marginally less confused than before I started, so any help with how to proceed (from someone who has experience) will be very much appreciated.
I have at least got as far as running TinyUmbrella to get some of the info....
Device Model: MB489B/A
Installed Firmware Version: 4.1
Installed Baseband Version: 05.14.02-5.9_M3S2
but I don't know how to find the Boot Loader version (or even if I need to).
As I say; any help appreciated.
