    Alright so I installed a fresh version of 4.0.1 on my iPhone 3G, jailbroke it, and downloaded ultrasn0w, and it still says "Waiting for Activation" on the home screen when I start it up. I no longer have a sim card for it. What am I doing wrong?

    You need to find an AT&T sim (activated or not) and put it in the phone. If you don't have one laying around find a friend who has AT&T and borrow theirs.

    Edit: I take it you used jailbreakme for your JB? Being on a 3g I believe you could have hacktivated with redsn0w to 4.0.1.

    Why are you installing 4.0.x on your 3G? It runs like pitch, in my opinion.
    Downgrade to 3.1.3 and jailbreak. Find a wifi connection and d/l ultrasnow. Voilà! Unlocked 3G and you don't need an AT&T sim.

    This. You need to hacktivate.

    Yeah I used jailbreakme. Thanks.

    Just to sell it. I have an iPhone 4. Would it sell faster as an unlocked 3.1.3 or 4.0.1?

    I would sell it with 3.1.3 mentioning the fact the it has hashes stored for 4.0.1.? Depends on how knowledgeable the buyer is it shouldn't matter either way.

    Alright I installed 3.1.3, jailbroke with jailbreakme, installed ultrasn0w, and activated with my roommate's sim.

    Is my iPhone now unlocked and ready to sell?

    If you can check the unlock works with a T-Mobile SIM, that'd probably be a nice touch.
    Otherwise, double check your data isn't on the phone and you should be good to go.
    BTW, are you on an iPhone 4 or 3G?

    I personally use an iPhone 4. I'm trying to unlock my iPhone 3G to sell it.
