    Iphone help needed

    For those who may be aware, in early 2008, the original iphone was available to be purchased from Carphone Warehouse for £170 and the contract was to be activated through itunes as home, however, after jailbreaking and unlocking the phone, the contract could be avoided.

    I am now intrested in purchasing apps from the Appstore, will I be safe to put my card details in my itunes account to buy apps, or will this activate the contract I was meant to enter into in 2008?

    Thanks for any help/

    what contract was this?

    just buy itunes cards for credit,download the apps direct to the phone over wifi-no need to ever connect the phone to a pc.

    So you obtained the phone fraudulently ?

    no credit card details just click "redeem" and put the itunes card number in.

    doesn't make any difference to the itunes store - once the phone is hacktivated you'll not get bugged to enter into a contract and you can buy, install and sync apps till your hearts content :-D
