    Default Ancient OTB 1.1.2 needs to work on T-Mobile. HELP.

    I bought a 2G (1st gen) iPhone about a year ago from the Apple Store. Since I'm on T-Mobile, I successfully Jailbroke the phone. I bought a TurboSIM card as well. Unfortunately, when attempting to get the TurboSIM to work, my iPhone bricked.

    After months of gathering dust I decided to get my iPhone to work again. I've recently figured out how to get my iPhone into recovery mode.

    I have a few questions that may seem outdated to you but I could really use your help. I've refused to update iTunes to make sure any updates wouldn't complicate unlocking my phone in the future. Well, the future is now.

    Here is my situation...

    - iPhone 2G (1st Gen)
    - iTunes 7.5
    - Vista Ultimate (but have MacBook Pro on OS X Tiger as well)
    - OTB firmware 1.1.2
    - Jailbroken and functional with 1.1.1
    - iPhone currenlty bricked but can access restore mode
    - AT&T SIM (with TurboSIM) in SIM slot
    - T-Mobile SIM available if needed
    - T-Mobile - my current provider

    I would like to get my iPhone working with T-Mobile. I'm not concerned with having the latest firmware if it adds risk to reaching my goals.

    ** I can get my iPhone into recovery mode by pressing power & home button when attached via USB. I can restore via iTunes 7.5 using the shift-restore feature **

    Here are my questions.

    1. What version of iTunes should I use to Restore my iPhone?

    2. Will updating iTunes to a newer version screw up my baseband preventing me from unlocking the phone?

    3. What firmware should I use in the restoration process?

    4. Which SIM card should I use in this process? The AT&T OTB SIM or my functional (on other phones) T-Mobile SIM card?

    I know this firmware looks ancient to you guys (and gals). But I'd greatly appreciate any insight you can give me into the process I need to take to get my iPhone 2G up and running on T-Mobile.

    Thank you for your help.

    read this tutorial:

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 2G iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

    there is everything you need to upgrade,jailbreak and unlock your 2g.

    and after that, you dont need a turbosim anymore.

    It worked like a charm. Thanks. I left the original AT&T SIM card in (without TurboSIM card). After the process completed, I put my T-Mobile card in the SIM slot.

    Phone calls, text messages, and everything else works perfectly with iTunes 8.0.2.20 & the latest firmware. Thanks for the help.
