    hey fellas thnx for helping out a newbie... i reset my iphone 3Gs (was unlocked for tmobile) to get erase all info, pics and contacts. Now i just want to use it as an ipod meanwhile i figure out what to do with it... it went thru the whole 3 hour process and now it only on the emergency call screen and wants me to put in a sim card. it was on the 4.0 software

    1. How can i unlock the phone to use it for just the ipod?
    2. did it reset to new software that nobody wants(it shows the raindrop wallpaper in backround)
    3. If i cant unlock it without an at&t sim card, did it atleast erase all my info so i can sell it to someone that does?

    I thank you in advance for this info

    You "erase all content" from the iPhone? Since it's been activated before all you need to do is connect to iTunes and restore from a backup I believe. If its still on 4.0 you can jailbreak it using in Safari (iPhone) and unlock with ultrasn0w.

    If you wanted stuff off your iPhone, you should of done it manually.

    Find an old AT&T SIM and put it in or use a pre-paid AT&T SIM. It doesn't have to be active.

    Exactly, put any AT&T sim and connect to itunes.
