Hi All, wonder if someone can point me in the right direction or even tell me if its possible.

Friend bought an iphone 4 off a friend of a friend, anyway she thought it would be as simple as getting it unlocked when she went back to the UK.

She has an irish sim for it but the phone shop in the UK said she would have to
get the network to unlock it.

Will one of the back street "phone shops" be able to do this as when the original
owner of the phone rang 3 they said it would cost a few hundred to unlock.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Think she is out of luck. Not so long ago there was no way to unlock a 3 iPhone unless they did it. They will only do it for the original owner if the contract is up

OK so I'm a little bit dense when it comes to all of this kinda stuff so I'm just gonna explain my situation and see if anyone can help.
Currently living in the UK and came into possession of an iPhone 4 thats locked to tMobile, their being a bit useless when it comes to helping me unlock it as I'm on o2. Currently at ios 6.1.3 which Im aware theres no jailbreak for but I was wondering, does the phone need to be jailbroken to be unlocked yes?

Google it. It isn't possible to unlock it with a jailbreak anyway but you can pay to get it done in lots of places

Had a bit of a fright this morning, was rebooting my phone and the whole screen ended up in the top left corner of phone, squeezed into about 1inch by 1inch. The rest of the screen was black mostly, but some flashing and stuff. Rebooted it several times, no change. Finally put it into safe mode and it was fine, and removed some stuff from cydia and it's fine now, phew.

Anyone know what could have caused this?

That sounds scary. Could be the last thing or two from Cydia. Can you remember what they were?

think iv just got it working, i just re jail broke the phone by downgrading from 6.15 to 6.0 via redsn0w...


It is possible. If you upgraded a 3GS to 6.1.3 and you are on baseband 6.15.00 and now you cannot activate ( no service message ) you need to:

1. Baseband downgrade from 6.15.00 to 05.16.08 with redsnow.
2. Then restore via iTunes.

Just be aware that if you are using win 7/8, make sure you run redsnow in XP SP3 compatibility mode. I ran into trouble prior to changing this setting.

That's it.

I bought an Iphone 4s on Ebay over a year ago that is locked on the Meteor network. I want to get it unlocked and Meteor are prepared to unlock it for me. The seller has to go to Meteor's website and log in with the original phone no that came with the phone and disassociate the phone and the number and then Meteor will unlock it for me.
The problem is that the seller can't seem to find the number that came with the phone as the phone was brand new and sealed when I bought it. Is there any other way of getting or releasing the phone from this no. Or if that can't be done has anyone used this gevey sim to unlock a 4s on Meteor or Emobile.
