    Default Question For UK Unlockers (O2 Contract)
    OK. I have ONE big question that I can't seem to find the answer to..

    I am in the UK with a valid O2 iphone contract and activated iphone.

    I want to jailbreak it only to get the installer app on. I am familiar with

    how to go about this..

    After this process, will I get Visual Voicemail to work as is... If not, why not??? Also will the Edge settings already be in the phone for the UK?

    Anyone out there been in my situation and tried all this? What happened...

    All I seem to find are posts by people unlocking in the Uk and saying they have voicemail afterwards not visual voice mail - but where they on valid contracts to begin with??

    I just want to get third party apps on the iphone - not interested in unlocking it as I am on a contract anyway..

    Is part of the problem 1.1.1 was never realeased in the UK so when you put that on its essentially a bit messed up (USA Firmware?)..

    Bit confused here.... Not many people in the UK seem to be commenting on this yet... Welcome all replies thanks.......

    Mate you can simply downgrade your phone. install 1.1.1 from here
    http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....a_Restore.ipsw
    Plug in your phone press shift and click on restore click the 1.1.1 file you have just downloaded it will run through and at then come up with a error, dont worry install ibrickr from here:http://ibrickr.com/downloads/ibrickr_v0.91.zip
    and boot your phone with this.

    *** NOTE: If your phone has been activated through iTunes, you can proceed to step 2b. ***

    1. enter *#307# press call, now use the back button on the top of your screen to remove *#307# ,
    now enter 0 , press call, press answer, press hold, press decline. And you get to the contact
    list. And thereafter every time you push the homebutton you just slide the "emergency call"
    slide, then enter 0 , press call, press hold, press decline.

    2. Push contacts, end call and you get called again, this time hit decline and you access one of
    menus with favorites, you can edit contacts, do a test ride on keyboard, take photos etc.

    3. Now edit a new contact and type in "prefs://11" as web-address and "http://jailbreakme.com" as
    an additional URL.

    4. When you tap "prefs://11" you can now select your favorite WiFi gateway.

    5. Now press the home button and move the slider to the dial-pad.

    6. Now you can go back to the contact list by Dialing 0, push call, then answer, then contacts,
    then hit the "http://jailbreakme.com" web address you typed in.

    7. Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will exit and you'll return to your
    springboard. Wait for the phone to reboot. You are now jailbroken. and are able to use

    With all due respect, I already know all this... but what I really need to know before I do it is will visual voicemail still work?
