received a working sim solution today
i (like some others) wasn't thinking and used itunes to restore my 3g and lost my yellowsn0w activation. obviously, since i did it this weekend, i was way out of range for the 5.8 bootloader save. so i immediately googled and found 4 different sim solutions and ordered all four. i got two today. one is the mooglex and the other was the ismartphone sim. the mooglex looked promising when i ordered it so i tried it first. i was disappointed when nothing happened. then upon thinking about it i realized that the sim i used with the adapter was the original supersim (because i've always kept a backup phone) i had made for the very first iphone before the first dev team software solution. i changed the sim back to my original t-mobile from the older 2g phone and IT WORKS LIKE A CHARM. it's 3:10 wed and i'm not sure if this is one of the sims people said lose signal so i'll report back. but it really works. i did have to reset my phone in general settings which screwed up things like my winterboard settings but that was an easy fix.
i have not tried the ismartphone sim because i want to see if this works without any issues. i still have 2 others coming. one from europe and one i got off amazon of all places.
but this does work. i think it was like 50 or 60 dollars. also i did not have any fit issues. went in and out pretty easy.
if you have any questions let me know and i can actually check back through my emails and let you know about each and the costs.
the only thing i've noticed so far is that i'm not getting the little bouncing blue dot in maps. i'll email them and find out if that's an issue. if the maps app continues to not work i'll try the ismartphone sim.
