I have a non-activated phone that I jailbroke the other day. I am trying to install ultrasnow but am not able to because I cannot connect to cydia. I was under the impression that I could just connect to wifi and install ultrasnow, but my phone is not seeing the internet and I have the wii bars. I tried to put an activated sim in and I get no service. I tried to reset and it still doesn't work. Any ideas? Thank you

I had to restore it and then I jailbroke it with the activated sim in it and it worked. The I was able to install ultrasnow and unlock it. I hope this helps.

Ok, just do the restore and then try jailbreaking it with the sim in. I am not sure if it was the fact that I didn't have the sim in or if I didn't activate the phone, but make sure you activate it. After it is done jailbreaking, on the main screen in iTunes, press restore again and it will ask you if you wanna restore as a backup or a new phone. if you want the stuff that you had before, then restore as a backup.
