    Just purchased one on clist and it's waiting to be activated. I'm taking it overseas and giving to relative. How am I able to activate this without a contract of some sort? I'm not able to use a 3G sim and cut it down and fit it in correct? :/ wish it still was that easy. Thanks.

    I apologize. It's a 2 month old phone. So I'm guessing it's latest firmware and os. It's from AT&T. The phone will be used in hong kong and Vietnam. Will unlocks thru cydia work for sim cards overseas? Or am I needing a gevey type adaptor unlock sim? Thank very much for the reply too.

    You have to be very specific as certain hacks are specific to certain firmware and basebands. Saying it's 2 months old only narrows it down so much but not enough.

    Take a look in Settings > General > About

    Tell us what Version says:
    Tell us what Modem Firmware says: (that's the baseband)

    If you were to give it to someone in HK then it's better to get one from HK! All HK iphones are factory unlock.
