Thread: at&t activated phone 1.1.1 unlock

  1. #1
    Default at&t activated phone 1.1.1 unlock
    I have a 1.1.1 iphone that was activated with at&t which I decided to unlock.
    I have run appsnap and jailbroken successfully.
    then I ran anysim and it went through the process and gave me unlock successful message.
    I did the unlock of course with my other sim card in!
    After rebooting my phone, I get an "incorrect sim" message and i am back to the activate with itunes with the globe screen.
    only emergency calls possible.
    I shut the phone off again and put in my att card and no problems there.
    I can still use it all is fine, making and receiving calls etc.....
    so, i am wondering what my next step is, as i really need that phone unlocked as i am traveling overseas a lot!
    thanx for the help.

    PS- I have read all the stickies, none relate to at&t activated before jailbreaking. thanX

    An unlocked phone is an unlocked phone, doesn't matter which SIM you use. Your problem is with Activation. Unless you have the patched Lockdownd file installed, everytime you put in a new SIM, you're going to have to de-activate and then re-activate your phone with the new SIM in place.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    hi, thanx for the reply
    how do i get the patched lockdown file?
    I have another phone which is unlocked and running 1.1.1 as well.
    can i use this one and transfer it to my other phone?

    Hi Vincent,
    Thanx for the reply.
    I looked in the download section, and couldn't find it!
    Also, I had no problems with an out of the box phone but what would be my process now that the phone is jailbroken and that i ran anysim with my att sim card in in order to be able to use all other sim cards i have when travelling?
    Should i just replace the lockdown file on my phone using cyberduck.
    DO i need to rerun anysim with the card i ran it with earlier.
    Thanx, but somehow everything is covered for phones which were never activated using at&t but no guides for the ones who jumped on it the first days hoping a lock free option will be available in the future.

    Dont click on that download link! It's bogus, look into download section of this forum on top right!

    Use cyberduck to replace lockdownd in usr libexe then use the "OTHER" sim, run anysim and you'll get a message at the end that anysim cannot unlock this phone ( which is not true) it does unlock. enjoy!
