    I really need to update my phone to 2.1 because I am having all of the problems that it is supposed to fix.

    My phone is currently 2.0.1 unlocked for T-mobile and Jailbroken.

    I need to be able to use it on T-mobile, with T-zones service.

    I need to have these apps work...

    MXtube

    I would like these to work, but I can live without them for a little while if needed.

    I am on a Windows Vista machine, and I do not want to take any chances with my phone.

    What are my options?

    What are the exact steps I need to take if this is possible?

    if you're on windows, you can't jailbreak 2.1 yet. . .at least officially

    stick with 2.0.2 until winpwn and quickpwn get released for windows

    Ok, so now that Quickpwn is released for windows, can someone please tell me if these applications will work, as well as if T-zones will work.

    These are the applications that I would like...
    Winterboard
    MXtube
    Cycorder
    Poof
    Lockdown

    And I need confirmation that T-mobile T-zones works on 2.1.

    Also is there any reasons why I shouldn't upgrade to 2.1? Any issues, or problems that it might cause?

    May I ask as to how you unlocked it to work with T-Mobile?? Did the jailbreak alone do it?

    Also, can I "go back" to 2.0.2, and re-jailbreak my iPhone 3G. I upgraded to 2.1, but now I'm running out of time.

    Thank you very much for any help!!!!!!

    Did they work before?? How DID you unlock your iPhone 2G to make it work on T-Mobile? Has anyone ever seen any Jailbreak software (Mac or Windows) that has ever unlocked, in the sense of SIM unlocked, on ANY version of an iPhone before?

    When I first got the phone I used Ziphone to unlock it (don't freak out people it was a 3.9 original bootloader) and then when I updated it a couple of weeks ago to 2.0.1 I used WinPwn. I have had the phone since March, using it on T-mobile, it works great!

    Unfortunately I don't think that the 3G phones can be unlocked at all, just Jailbroken.

    You live on the moon or something? Yes. EDGE iPhones have been software SIM unlocked for ages.

    No, genius, I simply didn't give a (insert expletive) about the original iPhone.

    I need the iPhone 3G's firmware 2.1 unlocked. Has anyone used one of these "Turbo" SIM's successfully??

    Thanks.
