    First of all you need to get hold of the Iphone

    In the US I believe you need to purchase it with a debit/credit card and Apple will ask for ID

    Once you have the Iphone its Simple

    Get Hold of a GoPhone Sim Card (Anyone will do providing its AT&T Blue and Orange SIm

    Use the 1.1.2 OTB guide to downgrade to 1.1.1, Oktoprep and Upgrade to 1.1.2 then finally use 1.1.2 Java Jailbreak

    dude i thought it had something to do with your credit check and if it failed you got the option. But what i dont understand is how to actaully have a true PREPAID phone. Like for example I put 200 minutes on my card and after those 200 min ran out i had to go and buy 200 more. How i do that or is it not possible

    You don't have to do that, on activation enter all 0's for social security, either that or its 1234... ect or all 9's

    Yes you can get a prepaid SIM card I use TMobile on a 1.1.2 phone with the new baseband. To get it to work I used Next SIM II. I do not know where you live, but if you live in the US just go to a TMobile store and buy a SIM card. They will provide you with a phone number and SIM card for 10.00USD + tax.

    One you have your Sim Card and iphone you will need to get a Next SIM II or other Sim card that will allow you to use your prepaid SIM. Just follow the instructions for the Next SIM II card or other card you decide to get.

    Guys is it really that hard? Activate a GoPhone SIM card in the site, use the iPhones IMEI when activating the sim. Insert in unlocked iPhone. Exactly what I did and I'm fine.

    have an active 2g iPhone on 2.2

    bought and activated an AT$T prepaid sim..

    plugged it in, no-go.

    jailbreak/unlock and try again.... no-go.

    phone says "Different SIM detected, please connect to iTunes".



    what gives??

    Do I need to change/edit the IMEI? if so, how?

    Still need to find out why the gophone sim is not working..

    when I put it in the iPhone, it will only make emergency calls, and won't get to the home page.

    Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
    why am I still getting: phone says "Different SIM detected, please connect to iTunes"???

    update:
    Restored iPhone with store activated GOPHONE SIM already installed, unlocked, and works perfect.
    Used my daughter's computer, not sure if that had anything to do with it....

    The problem was that whenever you unlock using Quickpwn (which is what I'm assuming you used) the SIM that you want unlocked must be in the phone DURING the unlocking process.
    If I helped you, then hit the "Thanks!" button please.

    I can't find Cydia on app store
