hey all, i finally came across an issue that is over my head and decided it was time i join the forums im constantly looking through and seek some advice. here's my situation: i recently purchased an iphone 4 and now i have an iphone 3g lying around. another family member wants to unlock the 3G and use it as their primary phone. the phone is running on software version 4.0 (8a293) and it is painfully slow. from what i hear, there should be an update to help improve the speed soon...so i want to be able to update the phone, but there is no sim card in the phone (i assume this would be an issue when updating?). from what i've read online, redsn0w beta 0.9.5 would work? and then use hacktivate so i can update later? and what do i use to unlock? one more issue...we just moved to ireland...would an unlock support vodafone? thanks in advance for any sort of direction. there's so much information out there on jailbreaking/unlocking i dont want to follow the wrong info and brick the phone.
