    Start by reading through as many threads in this forum as possible. All the answers are there. Short version: Blackra1n will jailbreak, and Blacksn0w will unlock. It's the unlock that will allow you to put a different sim in your iPhone.

    I'm not sure if this is still the case with Bell now that they have switched to HSPA, but Bell never used to use SIM cards before so I am not sure if this is possible.

    I may be wrong, now that they have switched to HSPA from CDMA. You may want to look into that further.

    EDIT....

    I just looked into myself and it appears Bell DOES use SIM cards with HSPA so I don't see a problem unlocking the phone and putting a Bell SIM in.

    i went to bell - they gave me an active sim card to put in my phone to make sure it works before I purchase a sim card - it shows I have full service but will only let me make emergency phone calls? I did the sn0w thing before i switched sims and it still wont work... Is there something in my phone that I have to change before installing the new sim???

    I would TAKE Alli's ADVISE. READ as many threads and other info out there that you can. Jail Breaking is quite simple but if not done properly it could LEAD to COMPLICATIONS. Good Luck
