    i have a black i-smartphone for my 3g... well to be precise its my sister who has the black i-smartphone and the iphone 3g. everything was working fine and dandy wen she had 2.1, then this morning, well yesterday morning, she decided to update to 2.2 and now it says no sim, or its just not accepting the sim she has.

    i know nothing about the iphone but i have done another firmware flashing on the psp.

    i just started reading on this recently and the way i see it, the i-smartphone already unlocks the phone...

    so my questions are...

    1. wtf happened to my sisters phone
    2. what can i do to help her, she's REALLY ****ing sad and i hate seeing my sister sad.
    3. wats the difference between unlocking and jailbraking.

    any help will be useful to me
    i can do a lot of the work, i just need a good point in direction on where to go.

    thank you

    Also, don't call your sister A DA. Very poor taste.

    Unlocking means the phone can be used on a network other than the one it's marketed for (so in the US, it will be labeled as being 'unlocked' if it was used on a network other than AT&T). Jailbreaking means that the software has been modified to let unauthorised applications be installed.

    But yes, do what the above posters said.
