    What method of jailbreak did you use? redsn0w? there should have been 2 bootloader files to use for the unlock.
    Windows or Mac?

    That "small lock" just means your touch screen is locked. slide the slider and the lock will go away.

    As for unlocking the phone for t-mobile, there should've been an option in redsn0w but you can also unlock by bootneuter in cydia.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    well yeah in order to download from the interent you need to be connected to the internet did you jailbreak the phone yet? You should go to the forum I told you about earlier to go through the step by step instructions I thought it turned out your phone was not jailbroken or unlocked yet?

    Hey Guys I am lil's Dad. I have been doing all the work on the phone. We have a 2G iphone. It has the 3.01 firmware. We used redsnow 8 to jailbreak and unlock it. It also had the two bootlogs in place during the process but something must be wrong with them as the phone is jailbroken but doesn't seem to be unlocked. It acted like it was unlocking it during the process but in the end it doesn't seem to be unlocked just jailbroken.

    So you are unable to make calls? Are you seeing the T Mobile carrier logo on the status bar?
    You make want to re-jailbreak with redsn0w, make sure you choose the option to unlock and use the bootloader files when asked.

    I just re-did that. I watched it closely and the bootloader showed it had sucsess. Both of the files did their thing then it came back up and said searching at the top corner then no service. We are kind of out of town though so I will take it in to work with me tomorrow and see if it comes to life. I have battled with this thing way too long.

    I am setting it up as a new phone. I am using the redsnow software and to watch it I would think it is going smooth as glass not a hitch. I downloaded the BL-39 and BL-46 files again to make sure they were working and did the process and as I said it all looks like it worked flawlessly but it shows no service at the top. It searched then showed no service. Maybe just too far from a tower right here. Will try again tomorrow. Thanks for the replies.
