First of all you need to get hold of the Iphone
In the US I believe you need to purchase it with a debit/credit card and Apple will ask for ID
Once you have the Iphone its Simple
Get Hold of a GoPhone Sim Card (Anyone will do providing its AT&T Blue and Orange SIm
Use the 1.1.2 OTB guide to downgrade to 1.1.1, Oktoprep and Upgrade to 1.1.2 then finally use 1.1.2 Java Jailbreak

dude i thought it had something to do with your credit check and if it failed you got the option. But what i dont understand is how to actaully have a true PREPAID phone. Like for example I put 200 minutes on my card and after those 200 min ran out i had to go and buy 200 more. How i do that or is it not possible

You don't have to do that, on activation enter all 0's for social security, either that or its 1234... ect or all 9's
Wish i got goPhone, didnt know how to do it at the time

One you have your Sim Card and iphone you will need to get a Next SIM II or other Sim card that will allow you to use your prepaid SIM. Just follow the instructions for the Next SIM II card or other card you decide to get.

I have my iPhone on goPhone.
You just take out AT&T's sim and put in your goPhone one. It's on the same carrier.

Guys is it really that hard? Activate a GoPhone SIM card in the site, use the iPhones IMEI when activating the sim. Insert in unlocked iPhone. Exactly what I did and I'm fine.

have an active 2g iPhone on 2.2
bought and activated an AT$T prepaid sim..
plugged it in, no-go.
jailbreak/unlock and try again.... no-go.
phone says "Different SIM detected, please connect to iTunes".
Do I need to change/edit the IMEI? if so, how?

Still need to find out why the gophone sim is not working..
when I put it in the iPhone, it will only make emergency calls, and won't get to the home page.
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
why am I still getting: phone says "Different SIM detected, please connect to iTunes"???
Restored iPhone with store activated GOPHONE SIM already installed, unlocked, and works perfect.
Used my daughter's computer, not sure if that had anything to do with it....
