    So you have Installer on your iPhone? If so just install AnySIM and run it.

    You won't be able to do a SIM unlock on it. The UK o2 phones have the new bootloader which can't be cracked (yet). So for now, all you can do is use your O2 sim in it

    Your original message says you have already bypassed activation so you can use your o2 sim in it. Nothing else to do. Using your orange sim isn't an option

    you can't unlock (OTB) OUT THE BOX o2 iPhones as the guides all tell you and previous posters have said. Don't run an unlocker on an OTB/OOB iPhone you will brick it.

    Hopefully you can put it into recovery mode and restore it back to 1.1.2.

    use this guide only :

    The way you received it is as far as you can go at the moment.

    when i reach step 3, it says in itunes, preparing iphone for restore, then after about 4 mins, it opens an error box that says 'the iphone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1604)'. Then my iphone restarts and shows a USB cable pointing towards the itunes logo. How can i restore it? Mike

    oh great, thats perfect, got it working. thanks everybody
