    I recently received a iphone from my buddy, he initially had a service plan with it. When he gave it to me it was locked.. he also told me that he did a master reset and he believes its V1.0 but i have no idea of telling how.... and he is currently deployed in Turkmenistan. I am trying to unlock and jailbreak the phone. Any help would be great.

    what a completely vague question. first of all do you have 2g or 3g? and just check your firmware version via the settings app. learn to google.

    I can't check the firmware... its locked.. Also, when i try to connect it to the pc via itunes i get a "The iphone "iphone" cannot be used with Itunes because the information required for activation could not be obtained from the iphone" "check that the SIM card is inserted in your iPhone and that it is not PIN-locked."

    So i don't know where to start...... i have a 2g..
