    Help with unlocking Iphone 3gs!

    Hi there,

    I've recently bought an iphone from the states so its locked on ATandT. I want to unlock this, but I'm not sure how Tried googling but can't find a solution with my version of Iphone 3gs.

    Details I know about my Iphone 3gs now is its running 4.0.2 firmware and its a new bootrom - most of the unlocking guides i see only support the old bootrom.

    Any help guys?

    Thanks!

    hi am off the states next week how much did you pay for it ??? cheers

    i have one thats locked to AT&T and its still locked, we are really struggling to find a way to get UK sims to work in it. hubby managed to jailbreak it so we can use the main touch screen and it will now use our wireless net so my boy can play the app and thats it really, if we manage to get it to work i will let you guys now. dont waste your money on the little card things thats on the net they dont work. AT&T wont unlock them but you can use them for your provider at $65 a month. O2 is £20 simplicity i forget the bit included but you get a good deal.

    this is the site you'll need to jailbreak the phone

    you will need to check the firmware and baseband as the newer ones are hard to do.
    if you connect the phone to the pc and then click on f0recast on the link above it will tell you what the phone can do

    hi there, thnks for your help! appreciate it. so the jailbreak works but the unlocking doesnt right? correct me if im wrong but from my understanding jailbreak is a program which allows u to run (non-legit) programs on the iphone and to unlock it u need to run one of these programs so u need it jailbroken first am i right?

    regards

    basically yes. first you need to install iREB this will put the phone into temporary custom firmware, while in this run sn0wbreeze 2.0 once thats completed it will permanently leave the custom firmware on the phone, there are loads of videos on youtube if you get stuck

    okay, i still dont know what IREB but i've unlocked via greenpoison. is there any difference between different unlocking programs? Cause i saw a lime something too and youre suggesting snowbreeze. Whats the main diff between these 3?
