I really hate making new threads because it clutters up the board, and this question I'm gonna ask has probably been beaten to death, but I've searched Google since 4:45PM and I CANNOT figure this out.

A few things.

1. my friend gave me an iPhone 3GS, locked to Bell. he needs to use it on Rogers. I don't know which firmware it's running, but I do know it's at least 4.0.

2. the phone is not activated, so I can't see anything.

is this unlockable? if so, how the hell do i do it? do i need to activate the phone first?

some please get to me asap. i don't have time to search anymore cause i'm at work, and would love to come back online to see whether or not this is possible. my friend needs a phone.

thanks

No. You can't do anything right now except converting it to an iPod Touch with the camera. What all you need is, put the Bell's sim card in it and activate.

There is no tools regarding the unlock or jaibreak OFW 4.0, but I hope it will be very soon.

i would keep the iphone 3gs and just wait for the jail brake to come out im in the same boat your in and right now im just using it as a ipod touch tell a jail brake comes out it shouldnt be to much longer for the jail brake to come out so just use it as a ipod and then when it comes out jail brake it because the 3gs is the phone step down from the iphone 4 so you dont want to downgrade to much so just wait if i were you thats what im doing.

Might this be the "run on sentence" my 3rd grade teacher warned me about ? :rolleyes:

I ran out of breath reading this.

What? so you're going to tell it when to come out? Maybe you should change it's brake pads while you're at it.
