ok first off hi as im new to the forums.
right my mate bought an iPhone in january and had it hacked by them to work on orange, then he bought a new orange iPhone and gave me his old one (which he didn't use for mnths). so the problem is i am on o2. I need to know how and if i can jail break it so i can use it with my o2 sim card. below are some details regardning versions on the phone.

version :2.1 (5f136)
carrier 2.6
model mbefore96b
modem fimware 02.11.07
i have a feeling it has been jail break before as i have cydia in the icons on the front screen. the hack the company used for my mate was a hardware chip adapter on his sim. this doesn't work on mine.

any idea what i can do to resolve this please.

If you are on o2 there is no need to hack or jailbreak your iPhone. just restore the phone and o2 sim will work!

hi thanks for replying. i thought that and did a restore yesterday, but it doesn't work so im guessing it was maybe an import not an O2 phone. also now that i restored the phone i have the newest un broken baseband so until there is an update i guess the only option is a sim adapter?
