    Can I unlock 2G Iphone with 2.2.1 (5h11) Firmware 04.05.04_g. I was able to jailbreak using Quick PWN. I tried to to unlock it at the same time. I get a screen that says different sim detected please connect to Itunes. When I do that it wants me to activate the phone through ATT. Is this not able to be unlocked the phone has never been unlocked. I just bought the phone for 175.00. I have att service but don't wish to pay 30.00 a month for data just wanted to use the phone and wifi am I stuck or is there any solution. I have searched the internet and modmyi for hours with no luck please help me!!!!!!!

    Do a full restore in iTunes first... then Quickpwn again. This should fix your different SIM issue.

    Simple... plug ANY phone into iTunes.. and hit the "Restore" button. Doesn't affect any phone you have synced to that computer. Every phone sets up a different profile based on it's serial number.

    Do I need to put my sim card in it or leave the one that came with the phone in it. Or not have one in it at all

    Also do I need to hit the unlock tab in the quick pwn options like install cydia installer unlock pineapple logo

    Do I need to hit the unlock option in quick pwn or am I not able to unlock this.

    Check unlock and Cydia (and logos if you want) just to be sure. If it's already unlocked then bootneuter will sense this and reboot the phone.

    I did a restore on the phone and reinstalled quickpwn. And it still comes up with the Different sim detected please connect to itunes slide for emergency. Is there a specific version of itunes I need.

    It looked to be unlocked since it did not install bootneuter and the phone rebooted

    Please help

    Problem Solved Please Read

    After 7 hours the problem was figured out. If there is any kind of pin coded or password on the sim card it will cause an error. Either an error different sim card or sim without pin code. Remember this because it could be causing a lot of problems
