NEED HELP - using an AT&T SIM from a non-iPhone device on a Jailbroken and Unlocked iPhone 2G, in the US. NO SERVICE displayed when the AT&T SIM that works on another phone, is used on the unlocked iPhone (unlocked using redsn0w 0.8). The AT&T SIM I am using is on a voice plan with data block active. AT&T coverage is better where I live and want to use my iPhone, without having to pay for data. Plan to use WI-FI for most data intensive needs in any case. Thank you.

I click on the correct Torrent on their website (for the Mac) - when I clicked to open the torrent file in my downloads folder, I get a message that Safari can't open the file b/c no available application can open it. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi I currently have an unlocked & jailbroken 2g running OS 2.1

I have looked at your instructions and they seem really straightforward.
I have one question before I try to update to OS 3.

Do I have to have an AT&T sim card in the device while doing this process. I do not have an AT&T sim, nor can I get one where I live.
Am I able to do achieve an update, and then unlock it. Or will it require me to insert an AT&T sim in order to unlock the device.

Thank you

there is no need for an AT+T card. If your computer is a mac you can also use the pwnage  tool which gives you more settings. With the 2g there is nothing you can do wrong. :)

I'm not sure why, after getting the iphone into DFU mode, Redsn0w would go no further than the first waiting for the device to reboot screen. Running XP in safe mode fixed that... maybe others using XP might want to try the same =)

MMS works perfectly with the 2G. You just have to install a custom carrier bundle through cydia. It will activate the factory mms in the os. Apple just wants you to switch to something newer and wants you to have more reasons to do so. :)

You just have to have MMS support from your carrier, which is a given in Europe.

Pwnage is easier to use. Here's another set of instructions that works out a little easier (yeah, I jaibroke it as the same time).
