Unlocking the iphone will accept the SIM card of any GSM carrier. This is entirely different than a jailbreak though a jailbreak is required for the current unlocks to take effect. Lot of software and freeware are available for downloading which unlock in minutes. What you will need to do is first find out your mobile phone's IMEI number. You can find this by typing in *#06# and then hitting the enter or send key on your Iphone . This number is completely unique to your phone and will be used to generate or calculate an unlock code for your iphone . Keep in mind this only works with GSM or SIM based phones and not CDMA ones. Get the unlock code here
Once you have your iphone unlock code, you can follow this simple steps in this site below to full unlock your mobile without vain : Mobile Unlock Solutions The Ultimate Website For Mobile Phone Unlocking

How to unlock iPhone using PwnageTool or redsn0w + ultrasn0w combination


This will guide you on activating, jailbreaking and unlocking your iDevice & thus will be of 2 parts: Part 1 - Jailbreak with redsn0w; & Part 2 Unlocking with ultrasn0w.

Hardware compatibility:
  1. UNTETHERED JAILBREAK - iOS 4.2.1, 4.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.1 and 4.0
    • iPhone 3G
    • iPhone 3GS old bootrom
    • iPod touch 2G non-MC model kid_ant_5.png
  2. TETHERED JAILBREAK (?) - iOS 4.2.1 ONLY - you can use either greenpois0n or sn0wbreeze for untethered jailbreak, for these iDevices:
    • iPhone 3GS new bootrom
    • iPhone 4
    • iPod touch 2G MC model
    • iPod touch 3G
    • iPod touch 4G
    • iPad kid_ant_5.png
  3. UNLOCK - iOS 3.0 up to 4.2.1
    • iPhone 3G
    • iPhone 3GS old bootromkid_ant_5.png
  4. UNLOCK - iOS 3.0 up to 4.0.2 ONLY
    • iPhone 3GS new bootrom
    • iPhone 4
Not sure if your iPhone 3GS has old or new bootrom? CLICK HERE. Or if your iPod touch is MC or non-MC? CLICK HERE.

Compatible basebands (BB) for ultrasn0w 1.2.2:
  • 06.15.00 - iOS 3.2.2 from iPad (read further for details)
  • 05.13.04 / 01.59.00 - iOS 4.0.2, 4.0.1 & 4.0
  • 05.12.01 - iOS 3.1.3
  • 05.11.07 - iOS 3.1 & 3.1.2
  • 04.26.08 - iOS 3.0
Notice that BB 05.14.02 & 05.15.04 are NOT part of the list. You need to update these BB to 06.15.00 for ultrasn0w unlock to work. Read further for more info.

However, if your BB is 05.13.04 or lower, you can proceed with jailbreaking but make sure you DO NOT INSTALL THE IPAD BASEBAND.

WARNING: Read the following consequences of updating BB to 06.15.00:
  1. There is no way to come back down from 06.15, & there's no hiding the baseband version from Apple. You'll be voiding your warranty in a very obvious way. kid_ant_5.png
  2. If some future baseband comes out with a critical fix, you won't be able to update to it if it remains down in the 05.xx sequence (then again, you wouldn't update to it if you wanted to keep your unlock anyway). kid_ant_5.png
  3. Starting with FW 4.2.1 if you have 06.15 on your iPhone you won't ever be able to restore to stock firmware (it will fail). You'll need to only restore to custom IPSWs (then again, if you're unlocker you should already be doing that).
DO NOT PROCEED if you don't agree.

What you need: NOTE: Download iPad's 3.2.2 IPSW ONLY if you'll use PwnageTool. Also, download ONLY the IPSW for your current iOS version. CLICK HERE if you have no idea what version is installed on your iDevice, especially if it's currently disabled.

For jailbreaking other iOS versions like 4.3.2, use other versions of redsn0w. CLICK HERE to see the list of all redsn0w versions.

Procedures:

PART 1 - JAILBREAKING with redsn0w (all iDevices):
  1. Connect your iDevice to the computer, run redsn0w & click Browse kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_57.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  2. Locate IPSW for your current iOS, select it & click Open kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_58.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  3. Wait until it say IPSW successfully identified. Click Next kid_ant_5.png
  4. If you plan to unlock your iPhone 3G / 3GS old bootrom, you need to check Install iPad baseband to update BB to 06.15.00 kid_ant_5.pngClick Yes if you're OK with these consequences:kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_60.jpgkid_ant_5.pngAgain, you only need this option if your BB is either 05.14.02 or 05.15.04. This will result to updating your BB to 06.15.00 which can be unlocked using ultrasn0w. kid_ant_5.pngAlso, if your BB is 05.13.04 or lower, this jailbreak will still work for your iPhone but make sure you DO NOT INSTALL THE IPAD BB! You don't need it! kid_ant_5.pngFor iPod touch users, the BB thing does not apply for you. so you have nothing to worry about.kid_ant_5.png
  5. Choose some more options before you click Next kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_61.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  6. Turn OFF your iDevice & prepare to put it to DFU mode then click Next kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_62.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  7. DFU mode: Press & hold the POWER button for 3 seconds kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_63.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  8. DFU mode: Press & hold HOME button while still holding on the POWER button for 10seckid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_64.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  9. DFU mode: Release the POWER button but keep holding on the HOME button for another 15 seconds or until you see Jailbreaking... on redsn0w kid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_65.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  10. Wait until it tells you that The rest of the process takes place on your iDevice. Click Finish kid_ant_5.pngThat will take around 8 to 9 minutes to complete

PART 2 - UNLOCKING with ultrasn0w (iPhone ONLY):kid_ant_5.png
  1. Open Cydiakid_ant_5.pngDon't worry if Cydia's icon is blank/all-white, it will still work. kid_ant_5.pngThe first time you open Cydia, this is what you'll see (image below), then it will close itself and take you back to the homescreenkid_ant_5.pngkid_ant_66.jpgkid_ant_5.png
  2. Open Cydia again. Before you proceed with the unlock, go to Changes first and do a Complete Upgrade kid_ant_5.png
  3. Tap Reboot Device after the upgrade kid_ant_5.png
  4. After reboot, you can then unlock. Open Cydia again (for the third time), and tap the following (in sequence):

I have iphone 3gs , booltloader 06.04, baseband .05.14.02, OS 4.01... i accidentally upgrade its version to 4.1 after that i did downgarde to 4.01 using tinyumbrella n hactivate, jailbresk it using...


You can certainly jailbreak, but you cannot unlock as of yet. It doesn;t matter if you downgrade the 4.1 firmware, that may help you jailbreak but it is the Modem Firmware or Baseband that matters. Your baseband upgrade camme with the 4.1 update. Since you are at 05.14.02, you cannot unlock as of now, period. You cannot downgrade the baseband on a 3GS, so jailbreak using Limera1n or Greenp0ison, but you need to wait for a new version of Ultrasn0w in order to unlock for anything other than AT&T.

Dont worry though, my sources tell me that the unlock is on it's way to be released.

Good luck, contact me anytime.

Up graded to 3.1.3..now i cant get a signal..what do i do???My phone was jail broken..but like i said no signal so i cant make any calls now.


Updating to official 3.1.3 will lose your unlock, possibly forever.
You can't downgrade. Lesson is never upgrade the iPhone without checking that the unlock works on the new version.
