As they say, the first step is admitting you have a problem. That being said, I'm more than willing to admit that I'm an idiot. I read a bunch of posts and tried searching but to no avail. Apparently the questions I have are so obvious it doesn't need to be asked: I want to unlock my phone and just install a game or something. I have at&t and I'm fine with that. I was looking into ipwned and it seems like the safest route (specifically not causing too many problems in the long run). What options should I use to just leave it still on the network? At the same time, if I've already activated it by the normal means is that going to cause a problem? There, I've swallowed my pride and asked. Feel free to call me noob and other things. I can take it. As long as someone answers my questions its worth it.
