need iphone help... jailbroken already.
alright so my friend wants to use his iphone as a prepaid phone.
he read that you can put a prepay SIM card in it.. and use it.
question is can you do this when it has been jailbroken? How?
It has Imario on it which is why I believe it has been jailbroken!
any help would be appreciated.

it has to be jailbroken in order to use a different sim card...
once broken you need to download the yellowsnow program,, in the cydia or installer app, i forgot which one....
make sure you read about the firmware on the download site before uploading any firmware onto your phone,, some FW doesnt allow the use of yellowsnow i believe...... READ CAREFULLY.... good luck, it can be frustrating

Jailbroken and being unlocked are two different things. To be able to use your iPhone with a different carrier it also needs to be unlocked
All the info you need can be found here:

well i got it all done..
i forgot i did this. I posted, then did it.
I used Pwnage..
I have a good story. So I unlocked his phone (jailbroke it)
then we went to the AT&T store, and we were like yeah we need a number and a sim card.. unlimited text and like $15 for phone time..
she was like okay.. and started doing all the info. She goes well with an iphone you will need a plan..blah blah blah blah it will be like $80+ a month. We were like right... just try it will you? I think it will work... lets just see
she was like well okay It's not going to but.. Wow it works.
Lady: Is this jailbroken?
Lady :You buy this from somebody, where'd you get it from?
Friend: My older sister, i doubt she did it.. is it hard to jailbreak or something?
Lady: Yes, very hard.. takes a LOT of work and time
Us: Trying not to laugh....
Well thanks!! See ya later!!
it's sweet! We have cydia, and I put winterboard on his phone..

You can only unlock the 2.28 baseband. So if the phone has been upgraded to OS 2.2.1, you need to first downgrade your 2.30 baseband to 2.28 before you can apply redsn0w. But otherwise, its a easy job.
Thats how you downgrade the baseband should you need to do so.
download the torrent for redsn0w and follow the directions for that... Then pop any SIM in and youre good to go.
If its not running 2.2.0 or a modified 2.2.1 OS, I would first upgrade using the normal methods.
