    Okay so basically:

    I sold my iPhone before WWDC.

    Bought another after WWDC.

    Connected to iTunes.

    iTunes asked for cell number and SS number (after restore.)

    Opened ZiPhone.

    Activated, Jailbroken, Unlocked.

    Synced my iPhone.

    I'm on AT&T in the US.

    Was it normal that it asked for my number and SS number? Or does that mean I'm not supposed to use a different iPhone with my old SIM card. Will the same happen if I upgrade to 2.0 and I won't be able to use my iPhone? Thanks.

    Another question:

    Was the whole asking for my number and SS number just part of the whole "hey this isn't your normal iPhone, but that's okay" sorta thing?

    Sorry, but another question. If I restore first, then restore to 2.0, then restore to backup, will there be any problem?

    I just restored back to 1.1.4.
    I went throught the setup until it started asking what plan I wanted and asked for my Apple ID, when I just used ZiPhone again. Are you sure that they wont do anything if I continue? Will they ask the same thing if I go to 2.0?

    Just to clarify, the 2.0 works with Ziphone? I was under the impression that it would just brick the phone until it was hacked.

    No it doesn't. What I'm saying is: When I restore my iPhone to 1.1.4, it asks me for my phone number and social security number, then tells me to select a plan. If I continue through this process, I'm scared that I will be charged for something. Will I have to go through the same process when I update to 2.0? Will I be charged?

    Unsupported Carrier will not brick but hold up your iPhone.

    If you have your phone unlocked for a different carrier then you will be stuck at the slide for emergency screen. Until the iPhone Dev Team releases their activator/unlocker which gizmodo has.

    Also Zibri at ziphone seems to be working on something but it seems that the iphone dev team will beat him to it.
