    you need 2 get it jail broken, im suresome1 on herecan sort that 4 u m8:)
    hope this helps ps im a rep tert

    I heard that with the newer 3G second generation phones, jailbreaking by software will only allow you to install programmes and not allow sims from other neworks other than 02 to work. What you need is a piggy-back sim which is around a tenner to buy (google 3g iphone unlock). The piggy-back sim goes ontop of your tmobile sim and you stick it/them both in as you would a normal sim and this will make the phone work as if an 02 sim is inserted.

    ah damn i dont know what firmware it is so dont know where to download the correct firmware files. Anyone know how to find out the firmware without activation?

    why, just install 2.1 m8 ?

    u on o2??

    can download the firmware files from anywhere nowadas (iphonefreaks.com etc)

    then just plug into itunes, no need to activate, just hold in shift then click restore and it lets you select the file you want to update it with, then if you need / want to, just keep it plugged into itunes and run quickpwn to get it working. But i dont think there is any sim unlock yet appart from the turbo sim method.
