i've jailbroken my phone but am not sure how i can unlock it - isn't the jailbreak unlock method a temporary solution? I read somewhere that if i do the jailbreak unlock it'll become locked to o2 (giffgaff) once i put that sim in and then i'd need to unlock it again when putting back my asda mobile sim. I am willing to pay the £20 to have it probably unlocked and have the phone imei whitelisted on the apple servers.
Say I took it to a local shop, will they unlock it in such a way that my phone is imei whitelisted and i'll be able to use my phone anywhere with any sim?
I'm so confused right now!
Seller seems adament not to help me. He says if i go to store they should unlock it and i did that today and they didn't unlock it. I ordered a vodafone free sim from their website and will try register that to my name and use that sim to unlock the phone. Getting a bit silly now. If this doesn't work i'm afraid I won't be joining giffgaff .
If any other ex vodafone people here willing to help a newbie out, give me a shout/some advice!
