    Default Unlocking Questions...?
    Hey guys, So i have owned my touch for a few months and i fully understand how to jailbreak it etc however i have sold it and bought an iphone instead (Should arrive tommorow).

    So i have a few questions i hope you guys can answer:

    Question 1
    Now can someone confirm that this is how i unlock/jailbreak/activate it to work with other networks?

    1. Take the contract sim out and put your own sim in,
    2. Jailbreak/activate/unlock the iphone by using ziphone by clicking the "Do it all!" button
    3. Thats it done

    Question 2
    Once unlocked are there any UK networks which dont work?

    Thanks Craig

    If it is a new phone then your steps are correct. If it is a used phone you will want to RESTORE to 1.1.4 first before running ziphone. As for UK networks, if it's a compatible GSM carrier you should be fine.

    DON'T USE ZIPHONE, IT WILL EVENTUALLY FCUK UP YOUR IPHONE!!! IT DID MINE

    use iPlus instead, much safer, much more reliable.

    Seriously... don't make general negative statements like that about a program that is tried and true. I have used it on over 50 phones and have not had one single call back... EVER! All problems people have stem from old old jailbreak methods like Dev team or Oktoprep. People upgrade instead of RESTORE or restore from a back-up image rather than setting up the phone as NEW and then use ziphone. If you don't follow directions then you will have issues.

    Secondly, don't use profanity.

    Lastly, saying "it will "F" up your phone eventually" gives no relevant or practical information whatsoever as what when wrong and why.
