    You have to activate the phone first before jailbreaking. You will need to restore now. Activate with ATT sim first to make sure phone is up and running. After that you can jailbreak. You wont be able to unlock though.

    Hi Simon, quick question. I got an iPhone 4S from japan, locked to Softbank Carrier. On baseband 1.0.11 and iOS 5.0, is there any option for a carrier unlock?

    Hi Simon

    Thnx for your help. I have few questions if you could answer them (step by step) and help me coz I'm n00b here.

    Phone details: iphone4 iOS -5.0.1, bb - 4.11.08
    Tried Jailbreak with redsnow 0.9.10b5 for activation

    1) After Jailbreak, iphone4 is "No Service" looks like it got hacktivated. I tried to reset it to factory settings but it is still the same. screen is flickering, boot time is more than 5 mins. How should I bring it back to original state ?

    2) If phone is back to original state, then whats the procedure of activating the phone (i don't have original at&t sim), can prepaid AT&T sim activate the phone ? Do I need to connect the phone to iTunes with prepaid sim ?

    Plz plz plz help me...

    Already told you. Plug it into itunes. Put it into DFU mode. Restore it to 5.0.1. Once done activate it with any ATT sim.

    Hi Simon, got another question. As mentioned on the first page:

    iPhone 4

    Baseband Firmware Unlock

    1.59.00 4.0/4.0.1/4.0.2 Yes (Ultrasn0w)
    2.10.04 4.1 Gevey Sim
    3.10.01 4.2.1 Gevey Sim
    4.10.01 4.3.X Gevey Sim
    4.11.08 5.0/5.0.1 None

    iPhone 4 on BB 4.10.01 on FW 4.3.x is unlockable using gevey sim. Then on the next line iP4 on BB 4.11.08 running on FW 5.0/5.0.1 has no unlock, with this being said, If I was to upgrade an iP4 running on FW 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 the upgrade will also upgrade the iP4's BB to 4.11.08 from 4.10.01? Correct / Enlighten me if I misunderstood this.

    Regards,
    Z

    Yes it will update your baseband. You can use snowbreeze to make a custom 5.0.1 though to preserve your baseband. That way you can still have 4.10.01 on 5.0.1.

    Could you teach me how to make a custom firmware? Which version of snowbreeze should I use.

    I hope you don't mind the request..

    Would really appreciate it!

    There are links to tutorials on the first post of this thread. They may be for older versions but the steps are the same. Or you can just google for a newer tutorial on how to use snowbreeze.

    Foreign made? An iPhone is an iPhone. A gevey sim will work on any iphone that has the right baseband/modem firmware, regardless of what country it is from.

    Ya, more than likely it is on 4.11.08. Unless whoever put it to 5.X used a custom firmware.

    Hi all,
    I just upgraded to an iphone 4s, so my old 3g is basically without a sim card.
    But I want to use it when ever I am around wifi.
    My old 3g is jailbroken, but everytime I use safari, cydia, app store: it tell me that i am not connected to the internet? or cydia tells me that is offline?

    What can I do to use my 3g when I am around wifi?
