    how to unlock iphone 3g for free?

    I bought an iphone and its locked to o2. Since its on PAYG, can I unlock it using my old o2 contract sim? So to avoid the £15 charge.

    Or is there another possible way?
    Thanks for any help

    iphone 3g

    sure, you can jailbreak it

    quickpwn.com/

    As long as the contract sim is active (your still paying for the contract!), then you can use it to unlock for free... if not then use the payg sim card (I bought one off ebay for £3.50 with £10.00 credit applied) to bring the price down slightly :-)

    i need it unlocked, not jailbroken; or would i have to do this first? :thinking:

    You wouldnt know any difference if it was unlocked or if you used quickpwn. Because it would be fully funtional

    im still paying for the contract but its being used on another 3gs. If i place this sim in the new 3g phone, can I claim a free unlock, or would they know?

    Has that sim been used to unlock the 3gs at all? As if it hasn't, they wouldn't know otherwise! Alot of people have been doing this to bypass the £15 charge (look on the O2 website forum for information) :thumbsup:.

    hellow i had a iphone and tried to update it to version 4.2 and it got stopped in the middle so when trying to restore the previous version it doesnt so i gave it to someone to make it for me and returning it to me it asks me to insert a valid sim with no pin lock to activate iphone what could i do to unlock it to airtel?

    ive just got a iphone 3g and want to unlock from o2 to vodafone. rob

    I have a Nokia 1180 Prototype from the 1980's, I want to be able to use it like an iPhone.. What can I do??

    Jailbreak it at jailbreakme.com (from safari on your iphone) then go into cydia and click sections. scroll down to tweaks. scroll down to the letter that your carriers name begins with and press whichever says something like '[carriername] AU carrier support' and install that. My iphone 3g is locked from o2 and i put virgin on with this! Easy, and works.
