    Yes, download redsn0w and run it. It will jailbreak and hacktivate the phone. There are 2 links to tutorials on redsn0w on page 1 of this thread

    I finally got it today but I must have done something wrong
    the phone just hangs on the apple logo when it reboots, any ideas ?????

    That happened just after I followed the steps here
    Hack that Phone - Jailbreaking and unlocking the iPhone 3G S - with hacktivation

    and specifically after I copied the lockdown file

    any hints ???

    Forgot to mention that the apple logo is accompanied by the spenning wheel after abour 20 seconds

    Ur help will be highly appreciated

    I have been able to connect to iTunes in recovery mode then I started purplera1n and then it hangs once more on the GeoHot graphic

    A hard reset led me to the same apple logo+spinning wheel hang

    May be the lockdown file leaks the right permission.....

    Ideas ?

    Some possibilities:

    1) Redownload the lockdown file. It might have been corrupted.
    2) Check the ownership/file permissions of the lockdown file once you have copied it over. It should match the other files in the same directory.
    3) Don't restore from a backup. Do everything from scratch and set up as a new phone.

    Okay, so just to recap:

    1) Use the sim that came with the phone to activate. This will not lock me into any type of contract/plan with AT&T.

    2) Use purplera1n to jailbreak.

    3) Use ultrasn0w to unlock.
    Thi has NOT worked for me, in the UK 02 is itunes sim, I need three network, so I put the 02 Pay as you go in, registered the phone reset it. jailbroke it, loaded cydia, downloaded repo66.ultrasn0w.com, rebooted put my sim in and NADA, just goes too emergency.
    stumped had to send the phone to the company that suppied the unlock software
    PS) tried it several times and changed the sim ect got a mate to try it as well no good.

    @Brecks: Look at the guide I linked to at the end of the first page. You will need to hactivate your phone by overwriting the lockdown file.

    restored the OS V3 then followed redsn0w tutorial

    everything is working fine so far, however Cydia crashes sometimes.

    Thank you all, specially iHeartMyiPhone for his quick response .
