    Hello all,

    I'm new to the Mac Shack, but have been on OT for years... I've been on appointment to a position in Africa for the past three years, and when I returned to the States for Labor Day I decided to upgrade my phone. I've been a Palm lover for the past 13 years, but finally decided to jump on the bandwagon and get an iPhone after a really positive experience with my iPod Touch.

    So I just picked up a black 16 gig iPhone 3Gs from ATT, and wanted to put my African sim in the device... But google tells me that I first need to jailbreak, then unlock my phone. I'm only now hearing terms like 'bricking', and was wondering if anyone has any advice about services who they have experience with and that I should use. Or avoid!

    Any and all (constructive) information is greatly appreciated.

    THANKS!

    Hit a place like modmyi.com and checkout their forums. Lots of people there are very well versed in the art of unlocking.

    Oh, I just noticed that I should be more specific in my request. I think the best option for me is a software solution, instead of a forged/altered sim solution. And I don't think that I'll be soldering anything. LOL

    Go to the tutorials for iPhone on www.iclarified.com

    I used Redsn0w 0.8 for my 3GS. After you jailbreak your phone you will need to follow the instructions for Ultrasn0w to unlock it.

    It is fairly simple with easy to follow instructions.

    I'll let you know, then. I'm assuming that it is simple, but I just really don't want to ruin my device.

    Reading that was a lot easier than reading some of the other pages... Nice and concise.

    Thank you!

    Damn... 3 hours 59 minutes remaining download. I hate the internet in Western Africa. I sooooooooo should have researched this in the States before I left.

    ...yea, all is well in my world. The initial restore package for 3.0.1 that was downloaded refused to be recognized, but I rolled the dice on the 3.0 and it all worked out.

    I'm having no problems, and successfully using my ATT 3GS on Ghana's MTN network.

    Thanks, everyone, for all your help!

    I've been adding all of these applications now. LOL
