Thread: Activating/Unlocking an out of the box iphone w/o SIM?

    Default Activating/Unlocking an out of the box iphone w/o SIM?
    Hi all,

    I'm pretty much a newbie at iphones - I've been interested for a while and have been trying to keep up with everything and doing my best to research what's going on. What I'm getting is that ZiPhone is awesome and pretty much everyone's dream, but I'm still left with one question that I think I can't find the answer to cause I'm so ignorant.

    If I get my hands on a new iPhone without buying an AT&T sim card along with it, will I still be able to unlock it so it functions with my T-Mobile subscription, and if so how? Does ZiPhone allow for that?

    I hope this isn't a too stupid question and that this is the right forum. Be gentle!

    You do not need to have a SIM in the slot to perform the activate, jailbreak, & unlock process. After your done, just pop in you T-Mo SIM and you are good to go.

    Do you know what firmware and version iPhone you are getting?

    Rvlyssup~I have a question for you. If you have a 1.1.2 OTB iPhone and after activating, jailbreaking, and unlock, are you able to just pop your existing sim card in or is there more to the process regarding using an existing sim card????
