Rhukie, check if there's on app called Cydia on your iPhone, if yes, then it's jailbroken. You can upgrade if you don't need to jailbreak provided your iPhone is factory unlocked.

Your iPhone is not factory unlocked. So you can't just upgrade to iOS 6 like that.

Now let's check if you have iOS 5.0.1 or 5.1.1 shsh blog saved. Open Cydia and allow it to load. See if you have any shsh saved. See snapshot for example.

Good, you can upgrade to iOS 5.0.1. You need iOS5.0.1 firmware, TinyUmbrella and iFaith to achieve that.

So google and download TinyUmbrella, iFaith and iPhone 3Gs 5.0.1 firmware.

Re: iPhone Software & Hardware Problems And Solution. by Suntemi(m): 12:24pm On Jan 10, 2013
Find out if your iPhone comes with old bootrom or new bootrom.

Download latest Redsn0w, put your iPhone in DFU mode. Launch Redsn0w, and you will see if your iPhone comes with old or new bootrom. If it comes with old bootrom, you can still ungrade to iOS 6.0.1 untethered. If not, you have to wait till there's an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.0.1

Also how do know you will need 17k to unlock your iPhone officially. What network is your iPhone locked. Truth is; most iPhone 3G and 3Gs are locked to AT&T and can unlocked below 7,000 Naira.

Re: iPhone Software & Hardware Problems And Solution. by 2BdBest: 5:02pm On Jan 10, 2013
I just got 3 units of Iphone 4 that are supposed to be unlocked. They were apparently used on AT&T in the US. When I insert an MTN sim into them it comes up with the Invalid SIM error message. I checked the status of the phones on the IMEI.info site and they are all unlocked though with the message that says they need to be connected to Itunes.

Could the phones still be locked to AT&T or what could be the problem? They are all using OS 6.0.1 with firmware 04.12.02

Pls help needed here. Thx.

IMEI:

01 296000 924685 2
01 242700 625369 5
Re: iPhone Software & Hardware Problems And Solution. by Suntemi(m): 5:51pm On Jan 10, 2013
2BdBest, the iPhones are actually unlocked. I just checked. When they say connect to iTunes, they mean you should put the iPhone in "activation mode" then connect to iTunes to activate.

Do the following to put your iPhones in activation mode.

Note: Don't do this if your iPhone is already jailbroken.


Backup the iPhones, Go to Settings, General, Reset, choose "Erase All contents and settings" then click "Erase iPhone". The iPhone will reboot and end up in "activation mode". Put in your local sim, connect to iTunes to activate. That's all.

I don't think they are jailbroken then. Just follow the instruction above to activate the iPhones.

You have to be sure the sim has been activated for browsing or the Internet settings sent to your phone
