Don't Know How To Unlock IPhone

19
Found 25th Nov 2009
Just bought an iphone off here... Is unlocked and jailbroken.

Put sim card in and said SIM LOCKED with options of OK or UNLOCK. I pressed unlock and a password came up. i typed in my password that i used on the old phone and that didn't work, tried 0000 but that didn't work either...

any ideas?

Thanks...

2g, 8gb - whats blackrain?

As mentioned above, you should look into Blackra1n depending on what firmware you have.

it is an o2 sim :thumbsup:

I'm confused, it is passcode locked or sim locked?

If it's passcode locked then the original owner put a passcode on it and you need to ask for it from him. If it's sim locked you need to download blackra1n or something similar to unlock it.

EDIT: Just saw your message above, it looks like the original owner put a passcode on it, ask him for it.

If I were you, I would read up here: blog.iphone-dev.org/

You are on an older firmware, as the current firmware is already at 3.1.2, but to be honest, this is a good thing because the jailbreaking process from an older firmware to the latest is easier. Check out the link above, and look into the Ultrasn0w, which is the most common sim-unlock method that goes together with jailbreaking your iPhone.

Correct but could still do with upgrading the fw to 3.1.2

well if i upgrade to that then it'll lock the phone again? as its already jailbroken to what it is now :?

If you have used your SIM, it must be the PIN you have set to it...
If the SIM came with the phone, then speak to the seller.

The PIN will be a 4 digit number.

Have you tried using another O2 SIM to see if it is the SIM?

Rang the seller and she didn't know what it was... she recommended trying another SIM. We tried my dads and it worked.... my parents asked me what my PIN was, i said it was 11 digits... they got mad. They told me that it would only work with 4 digits. So had to go back on my own phone, change it to a 4 digit number and you never guess what. It worked. I'm a slight numpty :oops:
