Modyfing part number
Hi all, I'm from Mexico, last week a friend brought me an US Iphone 3G, I tried to activate it via Itunes 8.0, but it won't recognize my "Telcel" Sim, Telcel is the official carrier in Mexico who distribute the iphone 3G; anyway, I was wondering if there is a method, hack or software to modify the part number of the US iphone (MB046LL/A, MB048LL/A, MB499LL/A, MB702LL/A, MB704LL/A, MB705LL/A) to become a part number from a Mexico Iphone (MB489E/A, MB496E/A, MB500E/A), and by this way, cheat the itunes and activate (and unlock it for telcel only) it like a legal mexican iphone 3g? I would appreciate any help or suggestion you can made, thank you.
think it is much more complicated than that... first your IMEI will not match, then the checksum will fail; else we can all just flash the factory unlocked model number
If your sim is an OFFICIAL sim, you have to activate the iphone with the official sim which have an iphone 3G plan. Jailbroken iphone, and activated by jailbreak process will not receive signal from official sim!
I tested with ATT US!
