    Go to our download section and download Quickpwn 2.2-1 for windows. Next you will want to put your phone into recovery mode by holding down the power and home buttons until you see the iTunes logo. Plug into iTunes and hit restore. After it's all done open up Quickpwn and follow the instructions to jailbreak and unlock.

    Well i tried your instructions on putting the iPhone into recovery mode (it just directs me back to the screen with the no Sim card installed) but because its non activated iTunes does not show the "recovery mode detected message" and itunes only tells me that it cant activate my iphone because my lack of a SIM card inserted, any other solutions?

    Gonna have to put in DFU made/restore and Jailbreak as posted.
    Heres a link to every thing you'll need. It's a tree menu, follow it and it will get you all the files, pics and step by step instructions.
    Heres a vid on putting in DFU mode so you can do this.
