    Default Gutted iphone i was going to buy turns out not to be a iphone
    As above a friends dad said he could get iphone at a really good price, too good to be true infact at a stupid price of 150, i nearly wet my pants with joy. went to go look at them today and they turned out to be some jap knock off. see link below.

    i laughted when i saw them and said no thanks, did a quick search on ebay and found loads cheaper that what he was flogging them at...

    So my fellow hackers/modders it come to the time where im going to go into town tomorrow morning and visit my local O2 shop and buy one out right, my question for you all is, if the iphones are version 1.1.2 will i still be able to insert my pay and go O2 sim like you can do on version 1.1.1 and away i go, or will i have to unlock it???

    thanks

    If it is anything other than what you sign with or agree with at O2 then you have to unlock it but there isn't any unlocking solution for OTB 1.1.2 phones YET ....

    In other words, if O2 say no then no..

    You can use any o2 sim on a UK phone, you don't need a contract.

    so will i have to downgrade it to 1.1.1 to activate it, or will it be a case of just opening the box pull out the sim and insert my payg sim and the phone will activate itself??

    im not thickheaded im just confused if you cant activate a otb 1.1.2 why is someone else telling me i can use my payg O2 sim..

    this is why i asked to get more feedback as im not 100% sure, so right your saying i buy a uk phone and insert my O2 uk sim, nothing will happen, what if i downgrade too 1.1.1 cant i activate it that way and leave it as that, or does it not work like that....

    look forward to your response lol

    You CAN activate it to use any O2 simcard - you cannot unlock it to use other network simcards though. I am using a 1.1.2OTB on a non-iphone O2 contract successfully.

    There are many many free guides available, I used this one:
    http://modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15837

    It helped me to download all of the files first and make an offline copy of the instructions incase they disappeared (which they did when I was activating mine - modmyi.com went offline).

    Hope that helps.

    This guide should also work. I think you need to upgrade to 1.1.2 to get the phone functions to work, as the 1.1.2 baseband is not compatible with 1.1.1 firmware.

    This guide is probably the same thing as the one above

    He wants to use an o2 PAYG sim on a UK phone, which is perfectly plausible.
    You've been around here how long, yet you don't know that??
