Folks - picked up two non 3G iPhones from US. Got a sweet deal on them - so couldn't resist. Want to jailbreak one for my wife now. Is there a site with detailed instructions?

Also since i like my Blackberry better (i am an email junkie), am selling one of them. What price should i expect (2.5G, 8GB, brand new, unopened case)?

Hey Skywalker. There is nothing better than: iClarified - Tutorials - iPhone

but make sure:
1.) U read the correct instructions
2.) Check iphone 2G manual only
3.) Check and verify the firmware..

along with that you can use any operators sim.
DX sell something similar for $16.84. These type of devices do require you to cut your sim card.

DealExtreme: $16.84 i-SmartPhone Operator Network SIM Card Unlock Attachment for Apple iPhone 3G

Your phone would still be locked so your warranty would not be void. These unlock attachments just put your phone into test mode which means it is unlocked (although not pucca hardware unlocked).

I'm desperately trying to avoid typing 120 words everytime the same msg need to go to someone else, also since the text application stores all sms's under one name, trying to copy, delete, forward, resend bla bla.. an older msg is just impossible I'm going crack here, pls help before I go fully mad

Oh BTW i'm on a 2G version 2.2

yellowsn0w is amazing.
Am using my iphone with airtel (purchased from vodafone) for the past 3 days.
Though it did not work in the middle , but an update was there on cydia immediately.

Where is this Yellowsn0w available? I can now take that SIM-slot film off my wife's phone and she will find it easier to switch phones between IND and DXB.

Firstly you'll have to update the firmware to 2.2 and then jailbreak it, here's a guide ... iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your 2.x.x 3G iPhone Using QuickPwn (Windows)

Then you'll have to add yellowsn0w.com as a source in cydia
and then install yell0wsnow and reboot twice, here's a tutorial for that ... iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 3G (Comments))
