    Default UK O2 official iphone 4 unlock / jailbreaking
    I have an iphone 4 on O2. I got the text saying that it had been officially unlocked by o2 and to plug it into itunes. At the time I did not have access to another micro sim but my daughter now has one on 3 so i put it in the phone, plugged into itunes and got the emergency call only interface. Is this because my phone is jailbroken? Will I have to un-jailbreak it to unlock it? Thanks

    You may have to restore it first to get it to activate properly and unlock.

    Thanks Simon. So I presume when I restore I will lose the jailbreak and it will restore to 4.3.3. Can I get a tethered jailbreak for 4.3.3.?
    I suppose it will delete anything installed through cydia so I will have to re-install everything? Thanks again

    You can do a backup in itunes to save your itunes related stuff. Anything from cydia will have to be reinstalled. Make sure you are activated and up ans running first before re-jailbreaking though. You can use redsnow 0.9.6rc18 to jailbreak untethered on 4.3.3.

    Thats a good thing, you may not need to restore now. You should be fine.

    Thanks Simon. Now I just need to figure how to get my contacts, which I inadvertently wiped from my MBA, transfered from my iphone to the MBA. I stupidly thought it would be as simple as a sync !!! Should have known nothing is ever simple lol.

    You should be able to sync them to your address book with iTunes under the info tab.

    Try syncing your contacts to address book instead of outlook.
