    Hi iphone 4, firmware 4.0 (8A293) and baseband 01.59.00 on Vodafone, I need to jailbreak first then I want to unlock. But there seems to option ultrasnow or using (SAM) which allows activation on any network. Do I need to install ultrasnow first then use (SAM) as i want to use my current O2 sim. thanks teadigger

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    They are 2 different things unrelated.
    Ultrasnow is to unlock and S.A.M. is to activate push notifications.
    I dont think it matter what one you install first but if you dont have a vodafone sim to activate officially go with SAM. If you got any spare even inactive Voda sims activate with that instead of SAM.

    iphone 4 sam/ ultrasnow

    I might be in bother then as the phone has a vodafone sim and is saying no service. Could i get any Vodafone sim say PAYG and get it back on the network then go for the unlock.

    yes, any sim (old/new/used/borrowed/canceled/PAYG) of the same network & country as the original iPhone is from should work....

    So out of interest whats gone wrong with the sim in it, so do I have to get back to vodafone signal and do you have to do it via itunes, before I can even think of jailbreaking and unlocking

    You put the official carrier sim into the phone, attached the phone to a computer, run iTunes and allow the phone to activated. Afterwards, JB and unlock.

    iphone 4 32gb (JB and SAM) or known sim

    Hi have an iphone 4 32gb, which I cannot get out of no service running 4.1(8B117), 02.10.04 MOD on O2.Want to keep 4.1 as unlock my be more likely sooner. Have done a erase of all content & media and waited for a older sim to activate with no luck, do I have to cut and chuck in my O2 3gs sim that I know is active or go down JB route and use Sam (see below) but not sure if it works on iphone 4 yet. Many thanks teadigger
