    Hi I am an ATT Customer since 2 yrs and my contract ends Jan 08 , I have a W810i phone on the contract.

    I recently bought a 2G iPhone through my friend who is an ATT employee.

    The iPhonse is sold as a unit without contract.

    I got an email when I purchased the phone, on how to activate the iPhone
    1) Download iTunes
    2)Connect iPhone
    3) Follow the iTunes prompts to activate

    The intention of buying the iPhone 2G was to unlock it and also install various iApps on it , play games and use it on any service providers network.

    My Question
    1) How do I unlock the phone
    2) How do I install apps on the phone
    3) Can I Activate the phone as said in the email, before I unlock it ?

    I didnt open the UPS package, So before I start I want to make sure that I dont permanently lock the iPhone with ATT .

    PLease give me step by step instructions..

    Thanks

    Yeah..don't bump.

    2) You can unlock it before activating it, FYI: If you activate, it won't extend your contract.
    3) Download/Install QuickPwn.
    4) Follow the steps. download the bootloads.

    actually download the bootloaders first..THEN follow the steps :D

    All you had to do was put your W810i SIM card in the 2G iPhone. There shouldn't be an extended contract b/c you didn't buy the iPhone at a subsidized price (unless b/c it was an employee purchase). The last thing to do is call AT&T about unlocking the iPhone or activating it. You probably could have walked over to T-Mobile and they would do the unlock for you and issue a new SIM card. If you are talking about "Jailbreaking" your iPhone, you could still JB it via quickpwn then add 3rd party apps at will; just do a google search and their homepage will popup and they'll walk you through the process.

    Jailbreak without activating in iTunes, and you'll be fine.
