    Exclamation I unlocked the iPhone! But am I in the Clear????

    I recently unlocked my first generation iphone with quikpwn tools. I already had a cell account with AT&T. I just wanted to be able to use the iphone and not have to pay their $20 or $30 data plans. So i went around it. But i am not 100% sure that my plan will not be affected. I really need some answers! If anyone has any answers or tips please let me know!

    FYI : UNLOCKING allows u to use your iphone with carriers that are not official.

    Let me see if I understand... You got a prepaid AT&T Sim, and a 2G iPhone, right?

    In this case, unlocking was not needed. You just needed to activate, but well, you can use Wi-Fi to use all the internet depending applications.

    well i already had a plan through at&t and i din't want to pay the ativation fee. Jailbreaking the phone allowed me to skip paying that fee. I just want to know if there is some way for at&t to recignize that i'm using it.

    if you call At&t, they will know you are using an iphone.
    Have an iphone using an AT&T sim card like yours and it's fine.

    OK, can someone help me out here, PLEASE. My problem is that I have an AT&T contract in another phone. However, I have been trying for weeks to successfully get it to work in a 2G iphone. If I restore the phone and insert my sim, it says no service and itunes wants to activate it. If i jailbreak it and do not unlock it says (null) (null). if I jailbreak and activate, same thing. Finally, if I jailbreak, activate and unlock, NO SERVICE. I have searched and searched, but I do not know what the problem is.

    I have downgraded to 1.1.4 and then used kiphone to downgrade the baseband, used iLiberty to jailbreak and unlock (with different settings each time), used pwnage tool on OSX system, used winpwn(it crashes), used qwikpwn in windows to upgrade to 2.2.1, etc. SAME RESULT. I have used all the tricks such as the airplane mode, resetting network, to no avail, used custom firmware to load, tried with the sim out in iTunes and the sim in with Qwikpwn, with the sim in for the whole process of restoring and Qwikpwn, with the sim out for the whole process of restore and Qwikpwn, etc.

    The only thing that I can not confirm is that someone in a forum stated that the current cingular/AT&T sim is not compatible with the 2g, only the "old" 64K ones. My sim comes from a krzr.

    My model number is MA712LL and the iphone shows the carrier as AT&T 2.9 in settings, current firmware 2.2. It has an original sim that came with it, but I got the iphone used. So, i do not know if the sim was ever activated or if the person had used another. I do know that I received the phone already jailbroken. Calls were made, but I do not know if it was with the particular sim that I have. My sim and the original sim both seem the same (3g logo, blue). I also have an unactivated suncom sim that when I put in it displays "carrier" in settings. Thanks in advance...

    That is odd ..
    FWIW, I have a friend with an AT&T contract for a samsung phone.
    He bought an iphone 2g. I jailbroke/Activate+unlock the phone.
    Put in the AT&T SIM and it works fine.

    On your phone, what is the modem firmware ?
    Is the IMEI number shown in settings --> about matches the IMEI printed in the back of the phone ?

    The imei number does match the number on back of the phone. The current modem firmware number is 04.03.13_G, and that is because I had downgraded to 1.1.4 to see if I could get service on the earlier firmware. I had recently used iLiberty again in order to jailbreak, activate, and not unlock, and not inserting sim to see if sim works, that did not work. Tried iLiberty with the jailbreak, and the unlock checked, that did not work. I am just trying all kinds of combos to get this working. It seems that it should just work by popping the ATT sim in the iphone(already activated or activated by jailbreaking)?

    Incidentally, the recent attempt with iLiberty does not show the carrier in settings (with sim inserted), it just says "no service". So, I wonder what that means in relation to the baseband. Was it not locked in my attempt, or because i had no sim in when I tried, or something else? I appreciate your reply and help with this.

    BTW, what did you use to unlock his phone? Did you remember what f/w he had, and what you upgraded to, and the settings? Was the phone OTB new or ever activated b4 he bought it?

    Oh boy ...
    04.03.13_G is the baseband for firmware 1.1.3.

    04.04.05_G is the baseband for firmware 1.1.4

    What ever you did, the baseband on the phone does not match with your OS firmware.

    Tell me what is the first 8 digits of you IMEI.
    You have a really messed phone at this point.
    Please tell me the history of this phone. Did it ever worked?. What exactly have you done to it?
    I will try to help you fix it .... may be ... may be it will work again

    ps:
    My friend's phone is an original 4GB iphone, bought with fw 1.0.2 on it. I personally unlocked that phone from 1.0.2 up until 2.2.1 with quickpwn+bootneuter. Phone never activated with AT&T.
