    Is it possible to bypass the activation screen on a 3GS? I bought a new 3GS off ebay, but it's from a different country/carrier. I need to bypass the activation screen so I can unlock it.

    Depends on which firmware version it's loaded with. If it's 3.1.2 on baseband 05.11.07 it can be hacktivated and unlocked with or jailbroken with Redsn0w or Spirit ( but if you're on 3.1.3 with a newer baseband (05.12.01) you are **** out of luck right now. Unless the previous owner saved the SHSH blobs via Cydia and you have a 3GS with the older bootrom, this would allow you to jailbreak it but not use it for calls/SMS until the next unlock is released. (Best case is end of June. 2010...)

    Easy huh...? :confused: I am sure someone will bash me on the head If I'm wrong :)
