    PLEASE HELP!
    I was given a 3g iphone as a gift and dont really know much about them! The thing is, i'm with t-mobile. I'm not sure if the phone was unlocked but it was workin with the tmobile sim in until i tried to use itunes with it. Now the iphone just has a pic of the USB pointing to an itunes icon. When i unlock it, its says emergency calls only. I can't access any other screen. I have no idea what firmware or base???? means so I would really appreciate a step by step instruction of what to do as i'm not used to the terms used! All i know is Cydia was on the phone. Cheers to whoever can help!!

    How did you try to unlock it?

    For the 3G you are supposed to use the "yellowsn0w" (through Cydia) to unlock it.

    I would just quickpwn it, through quickpwn install cydia, through cydia install yellowsnow... and viola, you are done. Hopefully when connecting to itunes you didnt update to 2.2.1 or else you are currently SOL. I would give quickpwning a try with the 2.2 firm

    The phone's version in Settings>General>About

    it's the sixth box from the top (Version), if it's 2.2.1 look at the very last box at the bottom (Modem Firmware). If it's 02.28.00 you're good
