    Default Is it possible to unlock brand new iPhone

    for a brand new iPhone 2G that has not been activated (in the sealed box), is it possible to use pwnage to unlock?

    or it has to been activated first with the AT&T SIM?

    i have t-mobile and want to buy a brand new iPhone from craigslist and want to unlock it.

    thanks!!

    hmm...i was helping a friend to unlock his brand new 2G once and i was not able to get into DFU mode at all. it kept asking me to activate the phone first.

    because we did not have the AT&T sim, we were stuck.

    so you are saying the phone does not have to be activated with the AT&T SIM card first before it can be unlocked using pwnage. also, does it apply to 3G or ONLY 2G?

    on a 2G phone brand new lets say...you can use pwnage tool or quickpwn to patch ativation and install bootneuter to unlock the phone without the original SIM it came with so then you can drop whatever SIM you want in there. You have to activate the phone atleast via itunes with a supported carrier or patched activation which quickpwn and pwnagetool both do (plenty of guides out for this). With a 3G phone though unless your phone is running FW 2.2 with a baseband 2.28 (or lower atleast so you can upgrade to 2.2 and baseband 2.28) you can't unlock brand new phones as I think they are shipped with the new FW and baseband which is FW 2.2.1 and baseband 2.30. So the unlock won't work but you can still jailbreak it but it would be a itouch unless you are on a official carrier. Hope that makes sense

    thank you very much for clarifying this for me. one question if i may, what is 'patched activation for pwnage'? i am a Mac user, but i am unable to find patched activation.
    if you would be kind enough to include a link to that thread, i would really appreciate it.

    i did a search for 'patched activation', yet i did not see any hits.
