    Hey guys, I just recieved my new 1.1.1 iPhone from Apple. I want to unlock (not hack) the phone to use on my Rogers network, but I'm sort of new to this. I was wondering if anyone could suggest any Links/Youtube videos/instructions that are easy to follow and work 100% to unlocking iPhones with 1.1.1 firmware. Also, I am using a PC not a MAC. :)
    Cheers.

    You don't even need a computer.. just a wifi connection

    Unlock your iPhone for free - no computer necessary!
    First, thanks to everyone who made this possible. Iphone Dev team who made the sim-unlock application used in the tutorial, Installer.app team, geohot, Iphonesimfree :p and all others. No need to disassemble your phone anymore, and no need to input commands manually.


    This tutorial assumes that your iPhone is brand new, and have firmware version 1.1.1 (latest). If you are unsure, here is how to check: On the emergency dial screen dial *3001#12345#* and tap Versions. Firware version should be 04.01.13_G. If it's 03.14.08_G you have v1.0.2 and need to update it first (recommended), or you can follow the old tutorial.

    Did you unlock your phone with old firmware and want to update to v1.1.1? Read here first!

    Bypass activation and prepare phone for software installation
    Make sure there's a sim-card inserted, and power on your phone (an AT&T card is already inserted when you buy the phone).
    On the activation screen, slide to emergency and dial: *#301# to make the phone call itself. (If the incoming call dialog quickly disappears but it keeps ringing, just dial 0 (remove *#301# first), and it will call itself)
    Answer the call, and tap on Hold
    Phone will call it self again, tap Decline. You will now be returned to the normal dialer.
    Tap on contacts, and tap the + icon to add a new. The only info you are going to add to this contact are two URL's. To add a URL, tap Add new URL. The first URL is prefs followed by a colon: prefs: and the second is jailbreakme.com. Tap Save.
    Your contact now has two "web pages" - tap on the first one (prefs:). This will take you to the settings dialog. The reason you want this, is because you need to connect to a Wi-Fi network, so tap on Wi-Fi, and get connected to a network, and make sure the icon on top of the screen is indicating that you are connected. While you are in the settings dialog, you should also set: General → Auto-Lock → Never.
    Now, press the home button, and again, slide to emergency dial 0, Answer the call, Hold and Decline the new call so that you get to the contacts. Tap on your contact (No Name), and this time tap on the other home page, jailbreakme.com
    Safari will launch and show you a webpage. Read through the text, before you Install AppSnapp
    Phone will return to activation screen, but don't panic, just wait.
    Phone will eventually call it self again, but this time, just restart the phone, by holding down the power button for 5 seconds.
    Start the phone again, and you should be taken directly to the home screen! Activation is now bypassed, and phone prepared for software installation!
    Unlock the SIM-lock
    Open installer, and install the update if prompted.
    Go to sources and tap Edit and Add
    Add this URL: i.unlock.no
    Tap Done and then Refresh
    Go to Install (at bottom) and scroll down to the category "System"
    Install BSD Subsystem (this may take some time)
    When done, go to Unlocking Tools category and install AnySIM (ignore the others, they are already installed if you followed this tutorial)
    When installed you can press the home button, and you will find a new AnySIM icon on your home screen. Launch it and follow the instructions.
    The unlocking process will take about 5-10 minutes, in the end it should say it was successful!
    To clean up your phone, launch Installer, and uninstall AnySIM and BSD Subsystem. Lastly, go to Settings → General → Auto-Lock and set it to a prefered value.
    If YouTube does not work ("You must first connect to iTunes..."), install YouTube activation which is found in the Unlocking tools-category.
    Congratulations, you are done!
