Thread: Jailbreaking iphone 3gs questions

    Default Jailbreaking iphone 3gs questions
    I have a couple of questions before buying 3gs

    Since you have not been able to unlock the iphone are you using your 3GS with ATT&T?

    If you put the Sim Card of another provider even though it hasn't been unlocked does your phone still work ?


    If it works with another provider sim card even though it hasn't been unlock what are the advantages of having it unlock?


    what software do you use to unlock your previous iphone and is it easy to use?

    For me to unlock a new 3gs iphone do i have actiavted first and then unlock it or it doesn't matter?

    I appreciate the help.

    Thanks,

    Cisco

    The 3GS has not been jailbroken or unlocked. If you put a SIM from a different provider you will either get an "Unsupported SIM" message or just get zero bars of service. There is no time frame when the jailbreak/unlock will be released and they won't be giving updates. The advantage to unlocking is being able to use a diff provider and generally you can save $20-$30 a month in service charges.
