    Default iPhone 2g restore and unlock without sim card
    My Uncle recently bought an iPhone 2g, without a sim card, from a guy in the states (Were from Canada) because he was to use it with MTS (Our local cell provider). The guy he bought it from said it was jailbroken and unlocked but when my uncle took it to MTS they said it wasn't unlocked. He tried to do it himself and messed it up, now it has the recovery screen with the with emergency call slider and says it has no sim card. He bought an MTS one and that did not work. I still want to use it as a phone so is there any way I could restore, jailbreak, and unlock the phone so that I could use it with MTS. (It was an AT&T phone before)
    And do I actually need the sim card for it to be used as a phone?

    Put it in recovery, restore it to 3.1.3. Then use redsnow 0.9.4 (you will need to point redsnow to a 3.1.2 firmware). Redsnow can jailbreak and unlock for you.
