    My brother lives in the UK and hes visiting us for a month here in Puerto Rico (we have a t mobile USA micro sim for him that is currently activated on a samsung galaxy S). He would like to use the iphone here instead. (yes he knows he will get EDGE speeds)

    He has an iphone with the latest baseband (ends in 0.8) and ios 5.

    A friend gave me a gevey sim for him and I heard I needed to downgrade the baseband (to end in 0.1).

    How do I do this? I've found mixed results googleing information on this, some claim its possible, others say it cant be done.

    Thanks for the help guys! :)

    He can unlock his phone before he leaves the uk for £15 it'll then be sim free

    Just get in touch with O2 and they'll unlock the iPhone for £15, that's what I did for my 3GS.

    If it's under contract, they'll unlock it for free as long as he fulfils the rest of the contract.
