    Default Iphone 3GS 4.1, can't activate
    I purchased an Iphone 3GS from an individual. When I did so, I did a full reset, forgetting that it would also erase the OS. When I restored, the only restore it would take was to 4.1 The thing is that now, I can't activate because it has a sim from my carrier, and I haven't been able to find what is the original carrier for this 3GS. i know I can find out by model number, but i can't seem to fin this particular model in google.

    This is the info on my 3GS:



    I know that as of right now I can't jailbreak or unlock, but any help to at least be able to use the 3GS with WIFI will be most appreciated.

    BTW, the site you can check the original carrier for your phone for most models is here

    Well actually you can and should jailbreak it with limera1n.com or greenpois0n.com

    That way you can use a custom firmware for 4.2 so you can unlock it easier when 4.2 is released the next couple days

    Please thank me on site if I've helped/given u knowledge u didn't know

    What are the letters listed after MC158? I have a MC138LL. LL identifies it as being locked to AT&T in the U.S. Look here: iPhone Secrets and iPad Secrets and iPod Touch Secrets

    Tried the greenpois0n but it didn't work, but tried the limera1n , and that worked like a charm. It's now Jailbroken on 4.1.

    You are a genious.
