    Yes it is only a JB, but they all tell you pretty much the same thing in regards to an unlock.... It doesn't look good...

    I believe you run blackra1n to jailbreak it, install cydia, install ultrasn0w and unlock. The official firmware does not update the baseband of 2G phones any more. It hasn't for a while now.

    Edit: the one thing that will probably get you stuck is the activation. blackra1n doesn't hacktivate. You'll probably need to wait for the upcoming pwnage tool to jailbreak, activate and unlock

    Well, i have seen users referring to "2G" phones equally often as:

    EDGE phones (non 3G, hence 2G)

    or

    Second Generation (2G, officially iPhone 3G).

    So depends on which he means.

    The new Pwnage tool 3.1.4 will jailbreak and unlock your phone.

    http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

    You will not need UltraSn0w as you have a 2G, that is only for 3G/3GS phones.

    However, if you are on a Windows PC, you will need to wait for the next version of RedSn0w to be released, that will do the same.

    Please take note that if you have factory-locked 3G or 3GS, you CANNOT update directly from iTunes then jailbreak and unlock since the newest baseband is not currently unlock able...

    He has a 2G phone, the rules don't apply to him.

    Dev Team said they arent releasing a Windows version so dont know if a new Redsn0w will come out. Dont know why they arent going to do a Windows version. My 2G is already unlocked and shouldnt relock upon upgrading as it never has but i want to be able to activate it again.

    i was just going by this recent comment on Dev Team blog, before the latest Pwnage came out:

    "PwnageTool and redsn0w are not yet compatible with 3.1.2"

    Gives me hope there'll be a new redsn0w sometime....

    I do love evoking some true emotion, but I was being serious. That's about as much I know about unlocking.

    then you probably shouldnt be trying to help people with unlocking.

    I've been messing with my old 2G lately... a lot of fun. Do you have a Mac or PC?

    For my phone, I downgraded to 3.0 and used redsn0w to unlock. Google "iclarified firmware" to find a firmware download for the 2G. Once you have the 3.0 firmware, use iTunes to restore by holding the Option key (Mac) or Shift key (Windows) and clicking restore.

    If you want to remain at 3.1.2, I think you have to use PwnageTool, which is currently Mac-only.
