    When your device is plugged in click on it in the sidebar. It should tell you the firmware there. If not, on your device tap Settings----> General----> About---->Version

    Hey friends, I gotta find out. Is the pain you're sufferring worth it for a jail broken platform? I can truly justify jail break only to unlock and get away from ATT.

    Hey CANADU okay Im feelin ya. That was the only thing I did to my phone and I took it to a shop and paid 60 bucks to unlock it! But when I plugged it onto my PC and logged onto I tunes it just says that the sim card that I have is unrecognizable. I use Tmobile. I want to be able to put all my music and stuff from my Itunes onto my phone!!! Any other ideas? Oh and for the reply that suggested I go on I tunes andclick on the updates... The Cell. Repair shop that unlocked my phone said to NEVER do the Itunes Apple updates or it will lock up again!! So which is it??

    Well if you do update it will break your unlock but they did not unlock your iPhone correct so I would restore or update and unlock your self.

    OK there is Itunes, and the firmware/OS on the phone. If you unlock/Jailbreak you shouldn't update your firmware on your phone or it will break the unlock/Jailbreak. You can update Itunes which is just the software that syncs the phone. So like Tramain said update your Itunes so you have the newest version. Then connect your Iphone and click on the Iphone in the left column. In the summary screen I usually uncheck the auto sync when Iphone is connected so that I control the sync. You should never click the update button to update the phone firmware and if it prompts you to update when you connect the phone cancel. If your phone wont accept your SIM then like Tramain said either take it back to where you had it unlocked or look it up and do it yourself.


    I had a 1gen Iphone when it wasn't avail in Canada just because I'm impatient and wanted it badly. So I had to unlock and Jailbreak the phone 1. To use it in Canada 2. To be able to turn off Edge because I didn't have a data plan

    I am not on contract and I always buy my phones outright so I don't have to go on contract. While I had my 1 gen Iphone I learned I didn't need the Edge network personally. So when I got my 3G I had to Jailbreak it to turn off 3G and Edge because I still don't have or need the data plan. So in my case it wasn't a pain because both phones the Unlock/Jailbreak worked the first time and I never had any problems with either phone.
