    Take your serial number off of here. You shouldn't be posting that around ;) . Also, there is no way to unlock the 3G through software right'll have to buy some sim card add-on, google around as i havent personally done it.

    I have an iPhone 3G I use a sim adapter I would not recommend them. There reliability is really bad.constant lose of signal. Most of the time I use my 1st Generation iPhone. If you decide to buy a sim adapter make sure it's cheap,You don't want to spend more than $20 on something that might not work after a week.

    I recommend buying a Gevey-3G turbu sim, I am using it for the last two months without a single problem.

    Good luck

    Why are you resurrecting a year-old thread to ask an unrelated question? In any case, the question would be better asked in the iPhone Tips, Help and Troubleshooting forum.

    Anyway, I interpret your question as saying that if you shake the phone while a call is incoming it will answer the call. Is that what your asking? If so, I do not believe what you are describing is a native function of the iPhone. I know there are a few App Store apps which allow one to shake the phone to answer.

    Or are you saying that your phone shakes (vibrates) when calls are incoming? That's your phone's vibrating ringer function and can be turned off under Settings>Sounds.

    I do not have a charger for it. A manual would also be nice.
    Does anyone know where I could find a charger?
    If you have a link please let me know.
