    Can someone please tell me if an iPhone activated the official AT&T/iTunes way rather than using a hack, can be unlocked using the TSIM method without having to play around with iActivator/iPhuc/Jailbreak etc modifications, or will I have to totally reset the phone and jailbreak/activate it using the unofficial methods in order to use a TSIM+non-AT&T carrier?

    I have a properly-activated iPhone with a cancelled AT&T airtime contract, so everything except the call functions work just fine. Do I have to screw with this to get a TurboSIM to work?

    My TSIM arrives tomorrow so I'm anxious to get some advice on how to proceed. Any help would be much appreciated

    The steps are simple (still in draft):
    1. Grab an iphone and activate it using the the jailbreak method as described in hacktheiphone.com
    2. Grab a TurboSIM preloaded with applesaft.trb
    3. Put the TurboSIM with the included AT&T SIM into the activated iphone and go to Settings>Phone>SIM Application, touch "Set" and wait for the tick symbol to appear next to "Set".
    4. Remove the TurboSIM+AT&T combo and swap the AT&T SIM with your mobile carrier SIM. Put them into the iphone.
    5. Enjoy

    You can change the EDGE setting in Settings>General>Networks>EDGE

    PLEASE NOTE:
    1. I have issue with the contact between my AT&T SIM and TurboSIM. Need to discuss with TurboSIM manufacturer.
    2. Need confirmation with others who has used TurboSIM with their local mobile carrier, preferrably with V2/V3 SIM.

    Until all these are resolved/proven, don't go all out and buy thousands of TurboSIM
    I am not an expert in this but -

    Is it possible to get this in an Easy to use User friendly application from the WikiDev team?

    If yes how long will it take them or is it easier for me to learn how to do the TurboSim method?



    What I mean is to get an application which does the tricking using software not hardware.

    1. Yes the AT&T SIM _must_ be included in your iPhone if you buy it!
    2. I think the "most" phones should work with that. But take care about the plugin method!! Some phones can destroy your TurboSIM because damage it physical i.e. crack the sim!!

    Sighh. Currently *all* iPhones come with the AT&T sim card pre-installed in the SIM card tray on the top of the phone. RTFM.

    Which is why the official iPhone SIM card removal tool is actually a damn paperclip.

    Ozbimmer, First off. Well done and thanks for all youe help to everyone here.

    Can you confirm that you have done this with a V2/V3 sim? Also, is there a problem with inserting/extracting TurboSim and another sim in the iPhone's sim card holder. Is it a very tight fit?

    And as everyone else has asked, what about preloading the Turbo Sim with applesaft? How is this done?

    Thanks

    Im considering ordering a turbosim and trying this out with my Rogers sim card in Toronto...has anyone around these parts tried it yet? Or can give a definite no that it won't work? (I dont wanna waste my time if someone's already tried it, or knows that it wont work... otherwise Ill give it a go)

    I've just read Ozbimmer's comments on the Bladox forum and it seem he's done this with a v1 sim (he doesn't have v2/3 sim to test with). He also has an issue with the physical contact between the TS and ATT sim. To get it to work he copied ATT data to Silvercard, as I understand it.

    I would heed Ozbimmer's warning not to rush out to buy TS until these issues are clarified or resolved.

    This may be the answer that many of us are looking for but there are still problems to iron out.

    Fingers crossed...
