I will be traveling to South America in the coming months, and I will be there a for a while. I currently have and iphone with att and I jailbreaked the phone already using ibrick at add some ringtones and skins. My question is will I be able to unlock the phone so I can use it with any GSM carrier in South America and then put back my att sim card when I return and will be to use my iphone as I normally do now.

Hey guys - I just finish part 1-4, but after firmware flash and putting in the sims card - I get "No Service". Help?
09-15-2007, 02:39 AM #25amazing and thorough thanks everyone who did this
the tutorial worked for me. Only snag was not knowing iPhone well enough yet - first step: hold down BOTH the sleep and the home buttonS (not singular button as described). Also QUIT iNdependence before launching AppTapp. Also I had to try Cyberduck twice; I got an error the first time. Last comment: please for future users consider clarifying the step of opening iTunes, deselecting the auto-sync feature, not changing the name (or being clear if it doesn't matter), clicking done, then quitting iTunes. Took me a few times to get past this step - but like someone else said, I think it was quitting iNdependence.
Freaking brilliant work. Thanks a $100 for the free unlock and much more for keeping apps like this in the free domain. Cheers.

Everything works for me all the way upto selecting the start button on the iUnlock app. All I get is a white screen no text, no buttons. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Please clarify this for me:
I am using AT&T and wanted to unlock iPhone (I will be traveling outside the country and wanted the flexibility of using local SIMs while out of USA).
If I unlock my iPhone using your (excellent) directions - can I continue to use AT&T service with all features (visusal voicemail, etc.) - is there a downside to unlocking iPhone for current AT&T users?
Thanks for the answer and for providing this great tutorial.

Hope someone can help me. I was feeling so positive all the way to the last step. The comment "copying files" has been up for 45 minutes. What have I done wrong? Do I just up plug anf start the whole process again?
Would appreciate any help anyone can give.
09-15-2007, 04:09 PM #34
Well, I went ahead with the unlock and it finished and my phone still works (phew!).
I don't have a T-Mobile SIM card to verify the unlock but will test tonight.
Thanks again for the instructions.

Anyone else having trouble downloading Open SSH through Installer? I keep either getting something about file size not matching or a download failed: time out error...
I installed the other two components (BSD,e tc.) with no issues...

I just bought my iPhone a couple of hours ago...immediately went through this tutorial. I had to start over a few times because iNdependence kept launching iTunes and it would fail. But it eventually worked, and the whole rest of the process was a breeze! I am completely unlocked and very happy! Thanks so much, things will be much happier in London when I go home next week (and I don't care that they are announcing a UK version next week, b/c mine will still be cheaper!). Cheers

I unlocked my roomates phone with the original method posted here, then tried mine, which went through flawlessly with no errors but wouldn't work with my sim card or his. Then I tried the GUI method which again went through flawlessly, but won't work with either of our simcards. I figured I would try his to rule out if it is my simcard or not. Could something be wrong with the phone itself? I has never posted the correct time on it. Right now it says 6:08 am in Cupertino, when its really 10:08 pm. The phone is "activated" and everything else seems to work fine. Any thoughts on what could be happening here?
