    The phone won't recognize the computer that it was origionally synced with. Because you have an iPhone 2g, I would suggest making sure you have the newest version of iTunes. Then restore the phone to the newest firmware (2.2.1).

    Once you do that, download quickpwn. It will quickly and easily unlock/jailbreak your phone, and you'll have all the benefits of the newest firmware.

    Even if the phone was never synced with another iTunes, the phone has been activated, so it will think it has.

    You can restore your phone to the same firmware you already have if you really wanted to stay on 1.1.3, and then just jailbreak/unlock from there.

    You can upgrade from 1.1.3 strait to 2.2.1

    Just plug it into iTunes, and let it update. After that, any of the guides should help you get jailbroken/unlocked easily.

    If I helped ya out, please press thanks
