    Ok so recently my friend sold me his iphone for $50 can you believe that. So i went and tried to delete everything off but it was to slow so i went to the computer and hit update in itunes. but my friend took his sim card out so i got screwed. So now my phone is on that screen where ll you can do is emergency calls, and you see the plug into itunes screen. My goal is to just use the phone as an i[od for the time being so ive been told i should jailbreak it since i cant activate it with att right? so im looking at jail breaking website, but one problem i keep incurring is which firmware is my iphone? i dont know how can i find that out? So pretty much i'm just asking for SIMPLE EASY instructions to jailbreak my iphone. Can anyone show me how to do that? And even if you have to call me and help me to work it out i would GREATLY appreciate. I live in Pa.

    thanks so much!

    i hope i can get it working

    try ziPhone....it will unlock the phone from 1.1.1 to 2.2....it dones't care what version firmware you have. by the way..it's free...and really easy. 10 minutes at most.

    Jail Brake Noob Question

    I read about the step by step process to jailbrake the iphone, my question is: Once you complete the process, do I just go to Verizon & ask for a new sim for my newly jail broken Iphone or do I use the one that's in there? How does that part all work? Can someone splain it to me? Thanks for the help.

    Kevin-new & lost!

    Hi Kevin,

    Jailbreak is not equal to unlock.....jailbreak will only give u access to Apple's OS file system and install thirdparty applications.
    its only when u unlock the iphone is when all the carrier restrictions is taken "off"
    so only when u jailbreak and UNLOCK can u use any other sim.
