    Hi all.

    I have just bought the iPhone 2G which has been unlocked and jailbreaked. It should be arriving today. Its been fully updated to latest firmware 2.1 i think.

    Does anyone have any do's and don't's please.
    I have read and read and read and totally confused about iTunes setting your phone back to standard iPhone and allsorts of horrors.

    Just really need to know the way forward from here please. What i can do and what i shouldn't do.

    Any app sites would be appreciated too.
    Unfortunately i am on Vodafone UK so guess i will have no internet access.

    Anyway a big thanks for any help.
    Kind regards

    iTunes will not do anything to your phone unless you let it.

    So when it offers you an update (2.2 for example sometime soon), just say no - at least until you know from here that it is safe to do without losing unlocking.

    For apps, you may have Cydia and/or Installer already on the phone, if you do check it out.

    And you can get internet on Vodafone UK, as long as your contract includes it and the phone's settings are right. The Vodafone add-on for internet is £7.50 a month according to their website: click here

    Hi and thanks.

    My network is Vodafone and i already have the mobile internet but that was all on my N95 8GB.

    Now i have the iPhone 8GB but vodafone doesn't have any settings for me to download to get my internet working on it. :(

    Cheers
