    Bought an "unlocked" iPhone off ebay USA, which basically turns on and functions in terms of apps, but doesn't recognize the sim card or allow it to dial out. I have a feeling the mupet I bought it from didnt know what he was doing as he has received allot of negative feedback from the people that have the same problem as me.

    Anyway, I want to do a clean format and restore the phone to its original state, and then use the http://ijailbreak.com/ app ... however I have no idea what the original firmware was since I didnt do it.

    Under settings/general/about it states :::::

    SERIAL NUMBER :: 7U745K33VP8
    Model : MA712LL
    VERSION : 1.1.1 (3A109a)

    I am not sure if the "VERSION" means firmware current or originally, but i have a feeling it means current ... but want to double check this.

    What is the best way to get the phone back to its original state so that I can try and install this : http://ijailbreak.com/

    Cheers

    upgrade to 1.1.3, and use the program ziPhone to unlock, activate and jailbreak!!! works a treat
