Hi,

I have purchased a locked iPhone 3gs from USA without any carrier nor any contract. The same is not activated either. I want to use the same in India with my vodafone connection. How do i jailbreak and unlock my iPhone 3gs in India and use it with my vodafone connection?

First off. Be very careful not to update it to 3.1 in iTunes. 3.1 was just released and the jailbreak and unlock are not available yet. Apple is not allowing downgrading the FW, so once you're on 3.1, you're there to stay. When you connect to iTunes, it will ask if you want to update, say NO.

Are you using a Mac or PC and what browser are you using?

The first step will be connecting to iTunes and setting it up. It will not activate since you don't have an AT&T SIM and it's carrier locked. It will activate after the jailbreaking and unlocking process is complete.

Is it possible to get the IBSS and IBEC numbers at this time (with the 3.1 being out) before doing the above jailbreak/unlock? From what I read, it is not?
