    In the top of the iPhone, you will see a small hole. Stick a pin in it and press hard. It releases the sim slot.

    BTW did you enjoy your hols?

    Get the discs OK? Play ok?

    help? lol...

    Although I'm not that familiar with the Iphone, as far as I'm aware you will need to 'jailbreak' it to bypass the requirement for activation - if you activate it with itunes you will be signing up for a contract.

    Yeah i'm pretty sure i jailbroke mine and then the activation process was taken away. When you connect your phone, end all proccesses to do with itunes etc. Do this by going to task manager. (Don't know if this step is neccessary however i did it just incase) I then loaded up ZiPhone and selected teh option do it all. This unlocks it and jailbreaks it. Your sim will then become valid and the activation part should go away.

    I did this quite a few months ago, so a few steps may be different now.
    Good luck

    It may be different with the 2G version, but on the 3G version, it effectively just activates.

    I got one on Friday (obviously contract signed in shop) and there were no options for different tarrifs when it was activated through iTunes.

    Having said that, Im not impressed with the phone and its going back. The only real way to use the phones capabilities is to unlock the phone and if you do, it voids the warrenty. Also the signal strength on mine is particularly poor. I expect to swap my 16GB iPhone over for a Diamond Touch this week as soon as O2 release it. Strangely no shops or the O2 site have any info, though the release date is meant to be 12th August. Looking ot the "buymobilephones.net" website, they have it in stock now (alledgedly!)

    The 2G and 3G phones are quite different in this regard.

    Nah. I'd get a better deal direct from O2. Its the 16Gb one I bought on a £45 tarrif and £59 for the phone. I'll get the TD on a £35 contract for free (probably) and then I apply my staff discount, which brings it down to £24.50pm.

    What doesnt he like about the TD?

    You can change the sensitivity on the phone. I'd imagine the charge stuff is anything online. I'd be getting it with a free unlimited (haha 200MB) internet bolt on. I would imagine he got his on Orange. There are some excellent deals for the phone on that network - but its not the right network for me.

    lol...im just worried that ive broke it :?

    To be honest, rather than waiting here for someone to try and sort it out for you, I'd be searching online...there is masses of information on the process out there.

    ive found a guide and im downloading some files...just the guide looks pretty complicated so i imagine ill still need some help once ive done it lol...but yeah..ive been searching all night and pretty much comes down to doing what im hoping to do now lol

    hey u, i couldnt get hold of my m8, but do a search on stuck in DFU mode.

    I bet itunes either doesnt detect the phone anymore or just says the iphone cannot be read, please contact apple for help .. doh..

    I have had this happen on a 1.14 2G iphone, not sure if the fix is the same as it did envolve forcing iLiberty+ to flash regardless (a bit ballzy... but it worked.) I will try to find it but i am sure as iLiberty is only for up to 1.1.4 that it will not work for you..

    Someone must know how to get this 3G iphone out of DFU mode, (semi Brick, but definatly not bricked!)

    It's not a 3G Iphone as far as I'm aware, it's the original one.

    you are right my mistake, just that it's on v2 of the firmware isnt it, that's what is causing the issue...

    If on 1.1.4 there are many easy fixes..:thumbsup:

    What program did you use? If you can get on to iTunes, restore it back to its factory settings. Then use Ziphone and select do it all...

    This is what i did for my iPhone, however i don'tknow if the process has changed for the 2.0 firmware?

    I will say that if you have the opportunity to restore in itunes that you should do that, take the hit for losing everything, (cant be much anyways on a v2 un jailbroken handset, (contacts should be on your sim so they should stay.. )

    After that find how to downgrade from 2.01 to 1.1.4 and then jailbreak that, unless you want to stick with v2 of course, then find the pwnage tool from iphonefreakz.com, not sure if there is a windows version yet though.
