    just ordered an iPhone, and waiting for it to arrive. i want to unlock it so that it will work with O2 here in the UK. i'm getting a bit confuzzled with all the different versions of things floating round. i'm using itunes 7.4.1, does this make hackery not an option? if not, what should i use to unlock my iphone?

    thanks for your help!:confused:

    No need to unlock it... As of today. :p

    Enjoy your phone m8.

    However, if you're talking about adding custom things to it, follow the guide to get installer.app installed onto the phone, which will allow for custom apps to be installed onto it, which requires no "hacking" knowledge of any sort, no hardware soldering, nothin'. It'll round off the applicable rough edges of the phone (still no mms tho :-( ), and make it just that much better of a phone.

    I use iTunes 7.4.1 without any issues syncing my phone, though it's hacked.

    Hope this helped!

    surely, if i've gotten it from america, it'll be locked to AT&T? i'll still have to unlock it to use with o2?

    argh, i'm confused!

    Yea, I realized that about an hour after I replied... If you would have waited just a few more days!! :)

    Who did you buy it from? Apple, or some other store? My question is, maybe you could refuse the shipment and get your money back, then turning around to get the official O2 one, with no need to unlock?

    It's up to you, as my personal opinion is to error on the side of caution (sending the AT&T one back, getting the "o2 version") to have that 100% guarantee that my phone works.

    Maybe you can restore it using iTunes, which in the UK should give you 1.1.1, which will work with O2.

    Otherwise, you pretty much fail. You "just" ordered one, yet all over the internet the September announcement in the UK was posted. :rolleyes:
