Hi all,
M friend wants an iPhone but doesn't want to transfer her service yet.
My iPhone is jailbroken etc, but I also have att service.
Can I jailbreak her iPhone in a windows pc so that she can use all the other functions of the iPhone.....ipod,internet etc?
What is the best method if she gets 1.1.2?

Thank you,
Cali

I believe she can fake activate it for right now unless they patched up the method of using all 9's for your social and then picking the go phone method.

But im not %100 sure, im sure someone else will be here soon to help clarify.

If You are saying she wants to keep her currant phone and get an iPhone to just use foe music etc, she would still have to activate it but you could do the down grade unlock method.

This all 9 method does not work; it hasn't worked in months.

IT CAN BE DONE! I have a 1.1.2 otb. I've jailbreak it without signing a contract. Now i'm using all the features on the iPhone without the function of the phone.... in another words, i have a iPod touch now:laugh2:

Do tell just how so others can follow your jailbreak success.

wow, then i don't know what to tell you. I've even posted that it took me about 4 hours that nite to complete it somewhere in that thread. If i know how to post a pic of my iPhone of my proof, l definitedly would. Somehow i was able to "fake" activate my phone, and now i'm using all the features on the iPhone. And if i insert my friend's AT&T sim, it would show AT&T service.

Anyone know how to do this. I'm hanging up the iPhone for 2 years to save cash for school but I'd still like to use it for everything else, ipod, calc, various apps, etc.

Most of these responses were posted back during much older firmwares and jailbreaking app versions. I'm running 2.2 on the phone.

?

I've done it just take out the SIM card and you can use it like the touch. I don't know if you try to sync or anything what that will do though.

just remove the sim and jailbreak it using quickpwn. it will activate it but just tell you "no sim installed" you can use it just like an ipod touch.
