I finally got the unlock to work! Twice! I installed an app and needed to restart. After I did, I started getting the "incorrect sim" error. At first I re-ran the unlock but all my icons disappeared, except for the ones on the springboard! Scary.
I powered down, removed the sim. restarted and re-ran the unlock app (from with in a launcher called XLaunch) and the phone unlocked. I put my sim back in and the top left read as "TMobile"... then my boyfriend and my boss called simultaneously. lol So it works!
A word to windows users: I couldn't get the unlock.app to work to save my life. Then I came across a guide here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=6027
I used Unlock.pxl and used iBrickr to install PXL and it worked like a charm, no drama. I'm on windows XP.

i haven't bought an iphone yet. but if i buy one and install this onto it, if i put an AT&T sim in that doesn't have a dataplan, will the wifi browsing still work? does anyone know how exactly this works without a data plan?
09-13-2007, 01:43 PM #207
wifi is independent of your carrier's data plan. it is not metered or measured in anyway by your carrier.

Everytime i replace the lockdownd file on my phone, it acts soooooooooooooooo slow, and I am unable to do anything. I have to basically restore the phone, and now my SIM is not recognized. So i am going to have to do this all again, for a third time. Does anyone else ahve any experience with the lockdownd issue? maybe it is a permissions issue? By the way I was unable to use wifi to install things, I had to us iPHUC and putfile to put both the Unlock app and the lockdownd files this way. Any help is appreciated!!
09-13-2007, 02:25 PM #209Same Problem
I've unlocked 3 iPhones now, the first 2 went perfect no errors no nothing.
But when I got to the third iPhone I got an error near the end when you do minicom.
Frustrated and pissed off I went ahead and closed out of it [ Ctrl + a -> q ]
I went ahead enabled the baseband
launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.CommCenter.plist
And oddly enough it was unlocked and it worked for t-mobile. The only flaw that I could find with the phone was that it didn't show the carriers name on the home screen that was about it, everything else worked. The first 2 iPhones were 4 GB and the third one was a 8 GB maybe the 8 GB is harder? Haha, anyways hoped I helped.

Can someone help me please because I did the unlock successfully and I put a friends tmobile sim card in my phone and it says reactivate in itunes with a skip button. Does anyone know what I need to do?
09-13-2007, 09:19 PM #215
No, the data plan has nothing to do with WiFi. WiFi is built into the device, not the plan. You can always access that. You can make calls and send/receive texts without having any sort of data plan.

Hey poetic_folly I was in another post and they said that once the iPhone was unlocked it was unlocked for good even if you did a restore. How ever I did a restore to see if this was true and now I have to reactivate when I put in another sim besides the ATT and yes I did jailbreak before switching the sims.

All, I am using a Mac and following the instructions IPhone unlock OS X on a brand new (non-AT&T activated) iPhone.
I am getting stuck at Step 2 of Part 3. For the like of me I cannot get my iPhone at this stage to connect to any open WiFi network.
Am I doing something wrong?
BTW: does the new version of iNdependence (1.2.1a) have a different button combination for the Activate pane than the screen shot in the guide?
Thanks for any help in advance.
