    I received a 1st generation iphone as a gift. The firmware is 2.0.1. I have Sprint cell service so, I would like to use this as an Itouch phone. I would like to be able to download programs to it, music etc, use WIFI. I know someone who can jailbreak it for me or I can prolly figure out how to do it, but, i am not sure what advantages that has.

    Do i need an Apple account to download programs and such? When I try now, it asks for my Uncles password.... I would like to figure out how to wipe this phone clean and get rid of his information.

    Would someone please give me some advice and steps to take to meet my goal?
