questions on how to activate a 3Gs 3.0.0 with prepaid sim card in usa
I have a 3GS probably 3.0.0 or 3.0.1 sitting in the box. I paid 700 bones for it to avoid the att contract. I'm on tmobile on my 2G iphone.
I hear the best way to activate is to use a prepaid sim card and then you can get push. I'm looking for a step by step guide on how to do this.
If i buy the prepaid card off ebay, are there any risks that the pushes I receive will also go to another phone? (I heard there was a problem with that if you use someone else's sim to activate)
is there anything in the activation process that will mess up my baseband?
When I then unlock the phone and put in my tmobile sim, will push still work?
3G & 3Gs iPhone Activation using Prepaid AT&T
FYI: All the Prepaid AT&T SIM will just Activate simple as plug in and activate just quick and painless within 30 sec.
Push will not bind and attach to that iPhone. Because once you JB & Unlock, your Tmobile phone number will take over. At least for the few iPhone I Activated, JB & Unlocked.
Baseband will not be messed up as long as you don't update & restore to firmware v3.1 or higher. Even if your 3Gs messed up and stuck in Apple Logo bootup loop, just restore & update with CUSTOM firmware v3.1 or v3.1.2 (Not Official Apple firmware)
Hope this post help. That's all I know and it works just fine.
