    first you will need to activete it you need legit sim card , if you dont have one use this tutorial http://dailyiphoneblog.com/2010/07/2...-original-sim/
    after that what ever you do dont update your softwre via iTunes , after activating we will find a way to jailbreak it

    thanks for the reply. Ok off home now to activate the phone. Which is the better software to jailbreak the phone with. Ideally eventually i want the phone unlocked as i wont be on t mobile for ever. Is there any information relevant from the phone to ensure the right software is used to jailbreak it ?

    Thanks again

    both

    when you get home , activate the phone , but please dont upgrade the software via iTunes , taka a look at Dev-Teams blog (link I posted earlier) for any info , check this link here http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.php?topic=26545.0

    One more thing you said you have iPhone 3 , I gues its 3G , not 3GS , if it is 3G it will be easier for you :P

    to be honest until i get home not sure my sister got it yesterday from three.co.uk but didnt want it. Will do what i need to do then post my findings in here. Thanks for your help. I believe with what i read jailbreak is the only way be install apps not purchased from i-store.

    Thanks again

    Hi there

    All activated even though the guy told me in the shop he thought it wouldnt be locked to Three it was, as it wouldnt accept my T-Mobile sims both of them, so the phone is activatedon Three,

    the version is : 4.0 (8a293)

    Which is the best to jailbreak and unlock?? If any??

    Thanks again

    sorry but you cant jailbreak & unlock it ATM , I gues it is iPhone 3GS , what ever you do stay on 4.0 , dont update upcoming 4.1 firmware via iTunes or you may never unlock it http://forum.dailymobile.net/index.php?topic=27068.0
