what network is it locked too if its 02 i belive you can get a pay and go sim top it up with £15 and do the 02 iphone unlock for pay and go.

Only the networks can officially unlock them :-) these websites just send you the jailbreak software with instructions.

i have no idea what network it is locked too, thanks for the info chris and marz barz, also can anyone tell me if i jailbreak do i have to sync it with the computer i used to jailbreak? also is there anywhere, where i can get instructions on how to jailbreak it?

nope once jailbroken you can sync with anything.

What firmware is it on?

err software version is 4.0.1
on the iphone it saya modem firmware; 05.13.04

Im not sure if you can unlock that yet... best thing to do is to try an o2 sim inside it and see if its locked to o2?

can you jailbreak an ipad

Yeh just go on the o2 official iphone site, enter a payg number with 15 credit inside the sim and it will be unlocked within 14 days.

iPad can be jailbreaked. You need to enter this address on the ipad browser jailbreakme.com

and its simple just slide the screen and it will be done in a few minutes.
