With help of unlock process u can salve this problem but it is more dificult to do this becarefull

this can be do in total two methodes (os and windows)
with help of os method:it totally take 7steps (be careful to do this)
first step:Download the virginizer package here. the two downloads the iPhone Elite Dev Team hosts on their site, just to eliminate any possible mistakes in finding all the needed files, or in properly merging them
second step: so make sure you are following all of this.
You must have:
an iPhone with 1.0.2 firmware which is currently working.
a fully charged battery.
03.x series modem firmware (mine is 03.14.08_G).
a patched lockdownd file already installed. If you don't and use a non-AT&T SIM your iPhone will leave you at the activate screen which you will need to bypass before continuing.
BSD SubSystem and OpenSSH installed.
Mobile Terminal or Term-vt100 installed (just in case you lose Wi-Fi).
the ability to use Fugu
step 3
Plug in your iPhone to your Mac. Quit/close iTunes. Don't just minimize it, shut it down. If you have the iTunes Helper open, you must quit that as well. To determine if they are running, open the Activity Monitor program found in the Utilities folder inside of the Applications folder. If it is running, highlight it in the list and click the "Quit Process" button.
step 4
If you are using any program (like Services) that gives you the ability to turn off your SSH server on your iPhone, then make sure your SSH server is turned on right now.
Also, make sure to press your Home button, then press "Settings", "General", "Auto-Lock" and "Never". It would be disastrous if the iPhone went into sleep mode during this process.
step 5
1)Launch Fugu. Copy the "virginizer_pack" folder (which you downloaded in Step 1), to the /usr/bin directory on the iPhone
2)Go into the virginzer_pack folder on the iPhone. Make sure the following files all have executable permissions (preferably 0755) set so they will run:
bbupdater, eliteloader.bin, iUnlock, norz,
If you don't know how to change the permissions, simply right click the file
3)Enter 0755 into the field next to "Octal Mode Representation:". Then click the "Apply" button. Do this for every file
4)Your folder should look like this when you are done.
5)Launch the Terminal. I did this on my Mac since I needed to take screen shots, but you could do this directly from your iPhone.
step 6
Type: ssh -l root (your iPhone's IP address) PRESS RETURN
Type: (your password at the prompt) PRESS RETURN
Type: cd /usr/bin/virginizer_pack PRESS RETURN
Now just follow the prompts. 1....2.........yes
****Note: at ths point a seczone.backup file has been created. If you click "Reload" in Fugu you can be extra paranoid if you want and back that file up right now. Close Fugu when you are done. *******
A lot of code will scroll by as the flashing process continues. Eventually it will end with a prompt symbol
If you haven't already quit Fugu, you should now. I noticed that even after closing it the following command didn't work for a couple minutes. So if it fails the first time, try it again later.
Type: ./bbupdater -v PRESS RETURN
You should have the same output I have here
You can close the Terminal and restart the iPhone.
Note: Your iPhone is now running 1.0.2 firmware with repaired 03.14.08_G modem firmware. Continue below to update your iPhone to 1.1.1 firmware and 04.01.13_G modem firmware. Your iPhone will be locked after continuing.
step 7

1)Launch iTunes and click "Install".
2) updated A LOT of iPhones in my time and this one took a very long time to update. So don't panic.
When the iPhone starts it'll be at the activate screen. iTunes will display the Welcome to Your New iPhone screen
While I'm not going to go into depth on this, you could use the emergency keypad exploit (dial *#307# then 0 then make a contact with a home page URL of prefs://1F) to go into the settings screen to verify that you are on 1.1.1 with a modem version of 04.01.13_G. But you really don't need to.
I recommend now following my Step 1 tutorial to proceed with the jailbreaking and unlocking of the iPhone.
before u do this be carefull my friend..................

I have iphone model A1241 and im trying to jailbreak that one but as i do the i need to type the passcode but i dont know the passcode that iphone is given to by my cousin

Then call him up and get the code. If it's a screen lock. There's no way to get around that. And most of us tech's think automatically "stolen phone" if someone "loses" their code when most people use their phone multiple times a day.

I tried to restore my iphone cos i forgot the phonelock code,but after i did the restore,my phone is still lock and its shows the usb and itunes icon instead. what do i do?

Did you restore it from the backup? If so, you must restore again and setup as new. If not, then what you are seeing is the connect to iTunes screen. Unplugged the iPhone and plug it in again.

I got a phone from my cousin but he forgot to give me the passwor

The passwords are to protect misuse of the device by unauthorised persons, you included. Hence, there is no way that you can use it without reinstalling the firmware whether you do it yourself or AT&T does it. Would it not be cheaper to locate your cousin and ask him the password.
