    Quicky question:

    My friends given me his 02 locked (uk) upgrade Iphone 3GS as a gift however I'm using Orange pay as you go sim card.

    Do I need to activate my IPhone 3GS (with a 02 sim card) if I'm going to unlock it? or just download 'purplera1n' and plug the cable in
    and follow the tutorials on the webs..

    or buy a 02 pay as you go sim card and activate...


    Thanks

    You have to have the original carrier SIM Card to unlock it onc first use, or upon using of new firmware, after unlocked, Jailbreak and install Ultrasn0w, then reboot.

    Remember to always keep that O2 SIM Card, for when you update.
