    Activate new iphone 3gs without original sim??

    Banned
    Hi,
    I bought a brand new iphone 3gs on ebay and it was locked to o2 but the guy has an o2 contract so he filled out the form about a week ago for it to be unlocked.
    It has arrived and i put my 3 sim in and when i connect it it says its not supported. Do i have to wait until it is unlocked or does it need to be activated first as it may already have been unlocked?
    If so how can i activate it??
    thanks

    yeah, you can do it this way. I got a 3gs today locked on o2. I connected it to wifi, jailbroke it, unlocked it, restarted it with an orange sim in it and it activated!

    just google iphone 3gs jailbreak and you'll get millions of results

    O2 take 14 days to offically unlock mate, the seller on eBay should get an email to tell him it's unlocked so just get back in touch with and ask him to update you when it's done. Don't jailbreak unless you know what your doing.

    Google the O2 unlock thing it says 14 days and you said the seller only requested it a week ago.

    Hope this helps.

    If you can open Safari, update to 4.0 (NOT 4.0.1 OR HIGHER) and visit jailbreakme.com, once Cydia is installed install ultrasn0w.

    You CAN update to 4.0.1 but NOT 4.0.2.
