    Hello people..

    i see that you're all very passionate about your iphones, Since yesterday i'm new to it..and still standing behind the fence but hopefully with a bit of your help i'll be able to enter the game as it were..

    OK, my girlfriend brough me her dads iphone upgrade from the states, 8GB G3..

    I entered it into itunes8, but it wants all her dads verification info, which obviously i don't want to do, for his sake...

    So i guess i have to do a 'crack' registration, and then unlock it for use in Italy with my Vodafone sim????

    Any kind of help & suggestions will be greatly appreaciated!!!

    Thanks man..

    That all sounds simple enough, but i really do have to get around this registration page first..When i plug the iphone into itunes, the AT&T page appears giving no other options but to enter the billing address and last 4 digits of registered user national security number, before i can get started.

    I've tried it on both my girlfriends macbook and my PC and the result is the same.

    How can i get around this?

    Thanks again,
