    I am a current iphone owner on AT&T. I am selling my phone to a friend on T-Mobile that got his Iphone stolen(hes buying me the 3g). What do I need to do to make the switch. I know I have to unlock it with winpwn(I am a windows user), but what do I do once its unlocked? Is there a guide i havent found on here yet that tells you?

    Step 1: Unlock with WinPwn
    Step 2: Replace SIM card in iPhone with TMobile SIM card
    Step 3: Party hard

    And 1 last. Does the sim card go in during the unlock or after? So t-zones and everything will work just by unlocking?

    Goes in after, and you have to download a T-zones hack to get T-zones working. I don't have any experience with this specifically, but you should just be able to go to "Cydia" from the phone and look for the "T-zones" hack application

    Wait, but I do not know if you can actually unlock the iPhone 3G, which is what you are planning on doing. You can unlock the original iPhone, but not the 3G.

    It sounds like he is upgrading to a 3G and doing this for a friend on his old first gen iPhone

    It says his friend is buying him a 3G, which leads me to believe he doesn't have one currently
