    Hi all!
    So my girlfriend exchanged her unlocked black iPhone for an apparent unlocked white iPhone from CEX, when we got home to set it up we realised it was locked to vodafone, rather than waiting to take it back I thought I'd be able to jailbreak it and take the lock off.

    I jail broke her phone, then through cydia I downloaded Ultrasn0w after following tutorials. It seems to have worked but the sim still isn't registering.

    The sim is working in my iPhone but the phone just says no service... I've turned it on and off, took the sim in and out, followed most of the instructions.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
    Ste

    Probably on a Baseband that is unlockable.

    Looking in settings/general/info

    if the modem firmware says something else than 1.59.00 its unlockable with ultrasn0w. SOL than

    bring it back, factory ulocked is so much easier and more re-sale value.

    Sounds like you guys got scammed.
    It isnt an unlocked iphone 4 and if its restored to the latest 5.0.1 or 5.0 nothing out there can unlock it at the moment.
    Its not as simple as we just going to JB it and unlock it.
    Go to settings/general/about and let us know the modem firmware version.

    Its not a scam, it's just idiots at CEX selling things without checking, it was sold as factory unlocked, I'll be able to get a full refund, the modem firmware is 04.11.07.

    yep can't unlock that.

    bring it back, i would restore it to stock first before returning it, they might not like it if you JB it....

    Im not sure what CEX is or how it works.
    I was thinking its something like craigslist where you meet someone and did a swap of iphones and took their word that its factory unlocked.
    And unfortunately with that baseband like the poster above pointed its not possible to unlock it. If you can get a refund I would advise you to do that right away.

    I'm pretty sure CEX will take it back but as stated above make sure to remove the JB first.
