Hi Guys, I hope one of you can help. I bought an iPhone 3GS (32GB black) at apple authorized reseller in Switzerland, without contract. Locked to Orange network. Took it to Orange outlet, requested unlock. Staff said "no problem" and scanned IMEI saying to "wait a few days for apple to update servers before activating". Took phone to home to Ireland. Some days later tried to activate using my local PAYG SIM iTunes message "SIM unvalid". So, I guess that didn't work. Question: Should I be able to Jailbreak and Unlock pre-activation and without official SIM (with purplera1n or future Dev-Team JB/Unlock) ?? Question: Getting iBEC and iBSS seems to first require working i.e activated iPhone, is this the case? Many thanks from first time iPhone owner for any help offered. J-Low.
