    Default [Winpwn][3G] I have an official carrier but want to unlock to other carriers

    Hey guys,
    I currently have an iPhone 3G 16GB from an official carrier Optus.
    However I want to unlock it to other carriers as well.
    I have previously done this with my iPhone 2G using WinPwn with no problems
    however when i try unlocking and jailbreaking with winpwn on my iPhone 3G, there is no signal available for the official carrier and other sim cards.

    Any help is appreciated =)

    Where are you at, and where is your iPhone from?

    Since your on optus which is an official carrier, shouldn't you be able to just do a restore/upgrade in itunes to the latest version 2.0.1 and it should be fine.

    L is correct, you should be able to do a restore in iTunes to the official Apple firmware and itunes should then recognise the handset as new, follow the instructions to set up with your sim in the phone and it should register. Let us know how you get on.
