    Default total n00b - help me plz
    Ok - I have read tons of stuff - only to confuse myself more... i am not all that tech saavy, but i want an iphone, and i want to run it on t-mobile, at least till my contract is up in a year.

    So, can I buy a new iphone, which I assume will have the newest software 1.1.1? and jailbreak it then unlock it with some software I can get through this site for free? Then take the sim out of my RAZOR and drop it in the iPhone and everything will work just like a real iphone?

    i know visual voicemail will not work - dont care. But what about safari?
    and EDGE (I dont even really know what that is)?

    Is it too hard for a non geek like me? should i just wait a year - ug... cant imagine that - iwant iphone NOW...

    thanks...

    If you get one, you can jailbreak with jailbreakme.com, unlock with AnySim, and then you should be good to go. Not sure if you need to pay for a data plan from T-Mobile. I dont usually deal with unlocking, so maybe someone can confirm this.

    Edge isnt necessary, you can turn that off in 1.1.1. You will need the use of wifi to jailbreak it though?

    Its easy enough nowadays.

    You wont need wifi to jailbreak. jailbreakme.com is a oneclick jailbreak.

    Yes, place your order on apple.com. Then follow tutorials
    HERE

    Also you can get your voicemail to work properly.

    Go to your keypad and type *5005*86*YOURVOICEMAILNUMBER# then push call

    Blam you have voicemail now.


    AND YES YOU DO NEED WIFI! Don't listen to these ignorant people spreading misinformation.

    If you need help setting up your iPhone don't hesitate to PM me.

    Gonna have to use another method other then jailbreakme.com, bc supposely apple has blocked that access root to unlocking the iphone, along with the new 1.1.2 phones and new itunes.

    best would be Carnaval and anysim 1.1

    Thread on this site is called "Idiots guide to unlocking/activationg the 1.1.1 iphone"

    Who knows, maybe he wont get a 1.1.2. Chances are he wont. Damn. Now were going to have to find our way around 1.1.2. OH well.. It will happen soon enough.

    Uh-huh...

    And how do you propose to access www.jailbreakme.com on the iPhone, without wifi? Obviously, the phone is locked and unactivated, so EDGE won't work.

    That's what I thought...
