    I'm trying to Jailbreak an iPhone 3GS, but I'm not having any success. I've tried Redsn0w & p0sisxpwn. They both keep giving me error messages. I'm only jailbreaking it because there is no SIM card, and I don't know of any real way to use the phone as an iPod, without having a SIM.

    What ios version?
    You might need to find a sim in order to activate it.
    Latest ios versions couldn't be hactivated.

    Yeah, but you can use any SIM to activate it from the original carrier that it was locked to (assuming it's not an unlocked phone; if it is, even easier and literally any SIM will work).

    It might even be on a baseband that can be unlocked, although IIRC you'll need a carrier-specific SIM card before doing that if the phone can't be hactivated. I remember on the 3GS you could even 'downgrade' to the iPad's contemporary modem firmware (06.11.00 or something like that) that did allow unlocking hacks, although I think there was then some problem with the GPS not functioning properly.
