            I bet you forgot to change the baseband of the phone. Usually jailbreaking programs do it for you, but I know with mine I had to set the program to do it. Apple made the baseband only work with Apple-approved versions of the OS (aka no jailbreaks), but the hackers made a specific baseband to work with custom firmware.

            If you already reverted back to stock though, then whatevs!

                    I would have taken it. You can still recover them while they're locked.

                      yea, quickpwn. i thought i told you this rob haha. glad you got your contacts back though. i lost my contacts trying to sync my gmail contacts and i didn't have a back up so i didn't get them back, that sucked.

                        honestly, i don't want an iphone, so i didn't really care. the guy just gave me 25 bucks. sure i could've gone through all the shit to unlock and clear it out and sold it, but i don't care that much. oh well.

                          Getting an iphone later this month. What's the advantages vs disadvantages of unlocking an iphone. And is there any risk I run by doing so?

Also, you have to be careful with updating the 3G version if it's unlocked because sometimes Apple with update the baseband. You absolutely need to wait and get the OK from the iphone dev team with each and every update.

                              If you're getting a 3G iphone and just plan on jailbreaking it, then you'll be ok. The only thing that sucks is that every time apple updates the firmware you have to restore the iPhone and re-jailbreak, so you'll lose all your jailbroken apps.

                              The original iPhone isn't a problem at all. But the same rule applies with each and every firmware update: you'll have to re-unlock and re-jailbreak.
                              But it's so easy with the pwnage tool. Save your contacts and shit to your address book, sync your e-mail, and re-break. I can't wait for the 3.0.1 or whatever to come out and be hacked.


                              Moya, 3rd party apps, an almost infinitely customizable phone, and just tons of random/cool shit to do. I'll never get another phone

                                http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ Is all you really have to know. That and the ability read and follow instructions. I wouldn't suggest using anything but the latest version of PwnageTool or QuickPwn.

                                  Fucking everything. I wouldn't even know where to start.. custom blocklists, free apps on the go, different layouts (themes), the better question is why wouldn't you do it I guess.

                                  Worst comes to worst, or if you don't like it, you can always just restore it back to normal.

                                    I played with it for a little bit and have decided that jailbreaking your iphone is similair to putting spinners on your car...it is for black people....j/k but srsly it hurts the preformance, but looks really cool.

                                    Que the Iphone dork to tell me I am wrong.

                                      You're 100% right, I jailbroke mine and it turned it to shit. Then it got stolen.

                                        i have mine jailbroken, and its a million times better.

                                        You need to use QuickPwn. its the easiest way. you just have to download the latest .ipsw. I've jailbroken mine plenty of times. Yes, ATT 3G network is different so you will only get to use EDGE, and the email/data plans doesnt work as well. the only plus to T-Mobile US is that their minute and txting plans are cheaper.

                                        I have used 3.0 and it is awesome. and both the first beta and the second beta have been broken already.

                                        These are pics from what i have done to my iPhone 3G. Im gonna make a Gost one.


                                        page one.


                                        thats my lockscreen. i changed it from a Shelby GT 500 KR to the 2009 Focus RS (Europe)


                                        this is my sms backround. i have a macbook air style keyboard and the keys turn red when pressed.

                                        the unlock sound is the transformers sound when they transform. pretty sweet.
