    I want to unlock my iphone. I currently have an 02 sim with a free years internet wifi that has run out. I cant put money in as it will go strait in to the now £10.00 internet/wifi fee. I want to put a three sim in the phone.
    Can I unlock this using the freely available software for a 3G v3.1.3 firmware 05.12.01?
    Thanks

    Ive unlocked 3 now and they have been un-locked in 48 hours after submitting the form

    Is there a step by step guide? Does internet & wifi need to be enabled or is it all done via a connection to a PC?

    I'd just get O2 to do it, use a contract number and it will be free.


    Where do I get one of these?

    I think he means if you were wishing to jailbreak your phone (unofficial unlock for non apple apps), back it up first.

    I take it you just meant free it up to use on all networks?

    OK thanks
    I think perhaps I should recap. my iPhone cannot connect to the web/wi fi.
    It is a 3G v3.1.3 firmware 05.12.01
    I have downloaded the Spirit.exe file. doI need to jailbreak before unlocking?
    Will I be able to unlock the phone after using spirit, and, if using the suggested ultasnow will i be able to unlock the phone without web n wifi.

    Thanks

    Spirit.exe is the jailebreak
    you will then need to install ultrasn0w to unlock the phone via cydia

    Thanks guys...nearly there.
    If using the suggested ultasnow and cydia, will i be able to unlock the phone without web n wifi. or does my phone need to connect using the bolt on?
    Edited by: "Boxer" 13th Aug 2010

    yes will work with out
    but if you do not have a bolt on make sure you edit the apn settings to disable the 3g phone uses data all the time checking emails etc

    Bloody great!!!! Icons have disappeared, no msg, no phone basically just bricked the phone.
    restore from itunes back up doesn't work.

    Should have done an O2 unlock like I said.


    Your a pillock. I asked for help in using the software to open iphone not how to give money to BT. I hope i'm there to stomp on you when your down.

    I doubt you have bricked the phone, do what the porter said, should work.
    It can get frustrating but when/where/what did you do ?

    Try getting it restored using the above method, and use jailbreakme.com for the jailbreak.
    Then should work fine, open the 'Cydia' app.
    Search for ultrasn0w, install it and the phone will beu nlocked.

    Not been BT for about 5 years now cowboy. And like I said if you know … Not been BT for about 5 years now cowboy. And like I said if you know someone with a O2 contract it's free.



    Your still about as much use as a soiled nappy.
