cant you ask him what you need? you'll need itunes unless its been unlocked, is it 3G or old 2G one?

he doesnt know....he had it on contract....its the 2g one

i have itunes....

will it need to be unlocked to work with my contract sim?

if he had it on contract its probably not been unlocked and you shall need ziphone and to follow this thread

As above once Ziphone has been used it will be unlocked and give you the installer application where you can download loads of games and apps.

He may be on about a turbo sim too, however not sure if it works with the iPhone or not.

Good luck mate

You don't need the original sim for the unlock process as i lost mine LOL and still managed to do it. =)

iLiberty+ is the better software to use for unlocking

I found ZiPhone better imo. Some people had problems others didn't.

When I bought my iPhone, I just stuck my PAYG O2 sim inside and activated with iTunes......
