    A friend of mine is going to be in India for a while.

    She has a 3G running 3.1.3 not currently jailbroken. She wants to get a SIM card to use while in India instead of using a world phone.

    Please tell me if this is the right way to do this.

    1. Upgrade her to 4.0
    2. go to jailbreakme - Cydia "make my life easier"
    3. then get ultrasn0w 1.0 to unlock
    4. When she gets to India, get a B Airtel SIM!

    Can it really be that easy? If not please tell me before we turn her 3G into an Indian paperweight and she can't phone home

    Anyone know if this is correct for using USA iPhone in other countries?

    Yes this would work fine. I did the same last year with a 3G on 3.1.3 - used a Loop Mobile SIM with no problems (no data though, I just used it for phone calls and Wi-Fi when I needed data).

    Yes this works.

    Tell her to get an Airtel sim card and she is good.
    I did this on 3.0 firmware.
    The only catch is to get the correct network settings for data.
    Beware i lost 150 RS aka $4 in 30 minutes due to data usage as data is really expensive . The solution was to turn off edge network in settings.
