I bought a world phone from eBay, shipped from Canadá. But it shows "no service" when I put my chip in. Wondering where to go from here. There are so many websites that have unlocking instructions. It's kind of overwhelming. Wondering if there is a nice website with screenshots and "baby steps" of what do do.

remember that Jailbreak is for the operating system.  Unlock has to be done AFTER a jailbreak and it gets access to the modem so that other sim cards can be used.

OK. Awesome. BTW: At the moment I don't actually have a SIM card. I went to the cell phone people and they just used a test SIM card. Which is how I learned of my original problem.

Is it possible to turn on my phone without the SIM? I don't see why I shouldn't be able to use it with just the wifi for now. However, it's not wanting to turn on. I just get an error that I have to insert a SIM card to "complete the setup" or something like that.

I also get an option that I can call emergency numbers.

All iPhones work without a SIM card - it will then have the same functionality as an iPod Touch.

Yeah. That's what I thought. So I'll keep playing with it and see how I can get in.

If you have any suggestions, I'll be glad to hear.
