iPhone Unlocking

By , 2009-12-01 10:36

Update: I found the Telus and Bell .ipcc files in my home folder. Here they are: iPhone Carrier Support
or, individually: Telus_ca Bell_ca

If you updated to 3.1.2 before jailbreak/unlock, you need the original carrier’s SIM to activate before unlocking.

Otherwise, you need to manually enter APN settings and use PushFix.
For Telus:

    Thanks – my Telus APN info (apparently) got wiped in a crash. I found myself unable check email, and scratching my head. Telus has zero info – I’m impressed you were able to find what you did on Bell’s site.

    Many thanks.
