    Default Unlocking An Already Activated Phone
    I want to unlock my already active phone.

    From what I read, I need to go back and virginize the phone as I had problems just doing an unlock with anysim.

    My question is if I do that will it be a problem to reactivate the phone? I want to use AT&T in the US but abroad be able to use a different SIM.

    Thanks in advance.

    You HAVE to replace the lockdown file otherwise you'll eventually (if not immediately) get a "different SIM card detected)" error. Easy solution is just SFTP to the phone go to usr/libexec and replace the lockdown file with the patched 1.1.1 If you need it, email me [email protected] takes 5 seconds to fix. YOU DO NOT NEED TO VIRGINIZE your phone.

    I unlocked an already active phone and I am getting the SIM card error but maybe it is because of the European SIM card I am using. When I checked with a US sim everythig worked fine.

    I will check the file jacobzking mentioned....
