    Angry Stupid ebayer sold me a phone with 2.1 but 0.2.28

    So, I work in far flung countries and rarely return home to australia. unfortunately my iphone was stolen from me, at knifepoint, and so i went about getting a replacement brought over to me. enter ebay. thought i could easily get an older locked phone and unlock with the dev-team unlock. great, right? i was careful, i asked if he had updated to firmware 2.2 and he said no.

    he lied. he updated to firmware 2.2 and then downgraded to hide the evidence. modem firmware is 0.2.28

    so now, i am stuck with an expensive ipod locked to an australian carrier.

    my question: is it correct there is no working sim proxy for this firmware?

    i have read the threads, but it's just idiots acting like children, bitching back and forth. mostly with people who seem to be selling the damn things. my conclusion is that there is no working sim-proxy. please confirm my conclusion.

    Perhaps in the future, DevTeam will figure out a way to downgrade your baseband safely or they may be able to unlock 2.28.00 BB.
    Sorry to hear about the story.

    You know that you can always claim a dispute in ebay and beat the hell out of the seller by leaving negative feedback. i think you should do that. After all, its an expensive product you purchased. I got my 3G from ebay too.

    Hopefully dev team will find a way for 02.28.0 bb pretty soon. I think they will resume their work after releasing the yellowsnow and taking a short break. so you might wait as well.

    Although i never used a sim proxy but i think they have a bunch that might work for a while. virgin sim is one that worked for a lot of the users. Just keep in mind that it is a violation of law to use the sim proxy.
