iPhone question.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I had an iphone 4 4.0.1 unlocked. I updated to 4.1 by mistake and obviously I need to activate it now.

If I get an AT & T sim, the cheap one will it allow me to bypass the activation screen and unlock it again? Or do i need the original contract sim?

Thank you.

You can use any ATT sim for the iphone (has to be micro sim, otherwise you will need to make it a micro sim, which there are several articles on the 'net with instructions on how to make a micro from a full sized one), phone doesn't care what sim is in it

I had this problem when I updated my firmware, and therefore my baseband, on 4.1 on my 3G.

It locked on the 5.9 Bootloader and and 05.14.02 Baseband, which means I couldn't unlock it to use in the UK.

I flashed it with the iPad BaseBand, using redsn0w 0.9.6b5 which will void the warranty in a very obvious way, and GPS has trouble with it, but it's a last resort sort of thing. Not sure if it's what you want, though.

Guide I followed.
