well a turbosim isn't going to do you any good as far as I know!

They were locked out at 2.2

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM - if it dont im ******

2.2 definately messed it up for turbo/rebel sim owners dude :(

Google 2.2.1 rebel sim or turbosim. You might find one that is recently updated to work.

You did a really silly thing updating without checking first. I really hope you learn your lesson about updating anything without googling first :(

banned#16
i aint got any other options mate apart from ebayin mine and gettin one with older fw on it
#17
Hold out. The dev team should sort out a fix. In the meantime, disable all updating through itunes.
banned#18
The thing is, itunes would have still asked you to confirm to download and install the update mate. Its usually something lik, "An update is available. Download and install?"

You do realise you're going to lose around £80 doing so?

Ebay fees are phenomenal. Then you have paypal fees.

As a poster before you said. Your iphone did not simply just update itself. It will ALWAYS ask if you want to upgrade it.

Be more careful in future.

hey i have an iphone i can trade with you but one question, can the latest firmware be jailbroken? i dont mind not being unlocked coz im on o2 anyways.

I had an o2 3G iphone and used a turbosim, so many problems! Love the iphone, but hate having to mod the sim etc, especially with software updates complicating things.

So instead, I just bought an iPhone from Romania. They sell them on Orange there, but Orange Romania officially unlocks them for the equivalent of £20. Now I can enjoy all the updates from itunes and still use my t-mobile web and walk sim without any problems what so ever.

When you first register it on iTunes, it says 'thank you for registering your unlocked iphone'

I would highly recommend an officially unlocked one!
