    wow...youre in for a very complicated mess. Unless youre willing to sign up with ATT. But if you want to SIM unlock so that you can use any other services besides ATT then...you would have to do these steps below, and they are not that easy according from what you wrote.

    Let me generalize for you.

    1 Download Itunes version 7.3.2.6 and install on your computer.
    2 Download iBrickr and jailbreak your phone.
    3 Download iUnlock (within this, there is a lockdownd file that you can bypass the activation step on the iphone)
    4 Download PuTTy or SSH Terminal in order to run iUnlock
    5 Modding your phone..ie, sounds, themes, 3rd party apps...

    All of these steps take time. The good thing about these steps is that all the directions of each of these steps are on this site. Search around a bit and read them carefully...soon after, you will understand how they work. You will run into problems, but fixes are on here also.

    Do spend time to read..and read...and read...Start out with the WIKI Guides.

    Best of luck to you.

    He can't even get thru the activation page yet. How could he check for anything?

    i cant see that far. when i turn the phone on its the welcome screen to activate the phone. it wont let me do anything except activate it through itunes or dial an emergency call. when i run ibrickr version 0.8, it says wait momentarily while we connect to your phone but it never does, what do i do

    hmm. where are you that you bought this? for me it's only been 12/27 for 1 hour... but if you got your phone that recently, it probably has ver. 1.1.1 which means you'll have to wait.

    To run iBrickr fresh out of the box...you need to.

    - Plug your phone in / dock it, and turn it off
    - Power it on
    - While the grey apple appears, press and hold both the power and home buttons until it says "Please connect to iTunes"
    - iTunes will pop up talking about restoring your phone. Begin the process and let it start downloading.
    - Unplug the phone, then press and hold power and home buttons again, until the phone restarts
    - Wait for the restore to fail in iTunes, and then start up iBrickr again. It should work this time!

    Then you just follow instructions on iBrickr.
    But first, you need to have iTunes installed..my suggestion is to use 7.3 version of Itunes.

    check this site out...pretty much every thing you need, and links to download are on there. Remember to read them carefully.
