    Okay so I am unsure if this thread is on here or not, and if it is please send me to that one so I can get help so here it goes. Oh just so you know I'm not too familiar with phones.

    I just got an Apple iPhone from my Uncle and he uses AT&T and I went there but they want me to do a $500 security deposit because I have no credit and I refuse to do that so I thought it would be best to go and jailbreak and/or unlock the phone to use it with T-mobile or someone else. So here is my question I looked on the phone and it said the version is 4.1 so I'm assuming that's the firmware, and I looked online on how to unlock it, and it seems people prefer redsn0w. I have redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 and I would like step by step instructions on how to unlock it, and if I need to jailbreak it first please send me a link that has instructions on how to do that as well, also I do not have a sim card if that matters at all. I am doing this so I am not in the hole for $500 because I believe that is a ridiculous amount to pay for just a security deposit for a phone. So if you can please help me I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is this a 3GS or an iPhone 4?

    okay so i now have it jailbroken but i am unable to use cydia because my iPhone can't find any wifi networks and i don't know why, i have a linksys wireless g router, is it because of the router I'm using or is it because i have no sim card? and if it's because of the router can you tell me of a place i can go to and connect to the internet in order to get ultrasn0w downloaded on my iPhone to unlock it please
