Vodafone Egypt iphone 3G Locked GPS
I bought my first iphone 3G 5 days ago locked to Vodafone and locked GPS too, I only want to unlock the GPS and since I have no experience with the iphones, I seek your expertise and here is my observation and current status:
1 - After flashing with 2.1, and Jailbreak and during my first connection to the itunes, it asks for carrier activation and I think its at this stage the GPS gets locked.
2 - From the above I reflashed without Vodafone sim inserted, after that I got the GPS working, but the phone is not working off course after inserting the VF sim.
3 - At this stage I used universal-sim not to unlock the iphone itself, but to unlocked the GPS since the locking most probably takes place during carrier activation, that was a big success, I got the GPS working, the phone working, but internet data not working, I used VF APN and now even data is working fine.
Can some expert use the mention above to unlock only the GPS to avoid the universal-sim drawbacks? Unlocking the phone itself is out of question as I am using the same operators sim.
Let me just get this straight..
You got the GPS working after you used Quickpwn/PwnageTool to activate it right, without VF SIM??
If yes, i think the phone(making calls)plus GPS should work after you insert the VF SIM. Because you skipped the carrier activation!!!
Tell me if i am missing something...
I have got GPS and phone working by inserting VF SIM+universalsim and you are right I have used pwnagetool and by this I have skipped activation.
My concern is that I want to get rid of the universal sim, make normal activation and get the GPS working.
