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???

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..If I help you out, help me out by clicking the button

You can use any o2 sim on a UK phone, you don't need a contract.To live, you have to lie

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:
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 is probably the same thing as the one above
You've been around here how long, yet you don't know that??
