Alright. I just got my 16gb 2g iphone from this dude and it is unlocked and jailbroken. i have at&t simcard and it has an ap where i can block edge. All his contacts and music are on here and i'm pretty sure the iphone is not formatted for my mac but for his windows. if I reformat iphone would it be easy to jailbreak and unlock it? Also how do I import all my contacts and delete his?? I see no option for it.

I just want my iphone formatted for mac and to be unlocked and jailbroken with the blocking edge application called BossPrefs. Thank you!!!!

If you're not using it with an AT&T account, simply don't put it in.

fees for what? Anytime you restore your iPhone, you'll be asked to provide the appropriate info.

If you're trying to set this phone up to be used on your AT&T account but not paying for this phone, I can't help.

Unlocking the phone simply makes it possible to use it on another carrier. If you want to use it on AT&T, it doesn't need to be unlocked.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You need to jailbreak it again so that you can activate the phone and simply pop in your non-AT&T SIM card.
