Thread: yellowsn0w and iPhone from Another Country

  1. #1
    Default yellowsn0w and iPhone from Another Country

    I may be able to get an iPhone 3G from the Philippines, and it is locked to a carrier there. Would I be able to jailbreak it, then unlock it with yellowsn0w? My concern is that different countries have different firmware, configuration, baseband, chips, etc. in them and PwnageTool and yellowsn0w won't work on it. I will eventually use it with T-mobile US. Yes, I am aware of the 3G frequency differences, but I still want it.

    Will there be any other issues, too?

    if its on 2.2.1 it can not be unlocked.
    apart from that, as far as im aware. you can jailbreak and unlock any country.
    Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

    It should work in any country. It works for tmobile if you have an unlocked 3G iphone. If it is already upgraded to 2.2.1 like many iphones already are you can still use a sim card for unlocking. This once worked fine for me on vodafone.
    What are the differences in frequencies ?
