Okay, so I unlocked my girlfriend's iPhone on Saturday but am unable to sync it to her computer on iTunes. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, do you know the solution?
I found that it wasn't synced first to that computer but now it is all good.

Does anyone know if you can get on the edge network with a tmobile prepaid sim card? If so what are the settings for that?

Hi. I was wondering... If I used iNdependence to get the SSH functionality (the third tab in the program), could I then proceed to Step 4 in this guide? Or must I use Installer.app (Comm Srcs + BSD + OpenSSH) as in Step 3 in order to proceed to Step 4? The guide says not installing BSD in Step 3 Pt 2 and proceeding to Lockdownd will render the iPhone nonfunctional, and I would like to avoid that obviously. But are they different means to the same end? Or is there a qualitative difference between Installer.app allowing SSH of the iPhone and iNdependence performing this task? Thanks.

O.K. just did a test and found out that once you have unlocked your iPhone and do a restore all you have to do is reactivate and make sure that you put the lockdown file in usr/libexec. If this has been posted before sorry. Just was excited that I didn't have to wait another 20 to 25 minutes.

YAY I got my phone last week and i everything worked great

I had successfully unlocked an iPhone (never activated with AT&T) in Hong Kong currently using SIM cards from Smartone-Vodafone and 3 carriers.
Everything seem to work: EDGE, WiFi, YouTube
Yesterday, my friend found that the Bluetooth on the phone does not seem to work.
After turning on Bluetooth, the iPhone would display "Searching for device", but will never find one. Even though there is a Bluetooth enabled Nokia E61i less than a foot away.
Do anyone else have this issue? Is this one of the known flaw of unlocking the iPhone? I had tried searching for an answer from this site but so far had not found an answer.
I am about to unlock 2 other iPhone for friends and I want to make sure have know the answer above before I start.
Thank you in advance.

The iPhone doesn't do file transfer via Bluetooth, just headsets. It will only find Bluetooth headsets.

No. You will still need to activate it using iNdependence.

alright i am going to unlock two phones for someone.
just before i go ahead and buy them and start i tried to SSH into my own iphone that is already unlocked.
tried with putty and winscp
tried both VPN IP and WIFI IP
when i run putty and put in the IP address it says connection timed out.
is it because i am runnin wifi off a VPN on the iphone?
nevermind figured it out.. my laptop was connected hardwire to my work network and my iphone was using the wifi network which is different ; >

When the new firmware update is released, can we just keep the firmware version we DLed for 1.0.2 (in Step 1) and trash the new one when it downloads and just replace it in its folder on iTunes with the older version just in case something happens down the line where a new unlock isn't found for a while and we need to restore before then?
Sorry, I didn't have my iPhone for the two previous updates, so I don't know how that all works. I just don't want to be up the creek when the new firmware is put out.
