    Total Iphone noob

    I had to get an iphone for work for the Ical. I just won a iphone unlocked 3gs Im just gonna slip my sim in and use it on the tmobile network. My question is is there an option to reset the phone to set up my apple email like on android because this is the main reason I need the phone. I asked the seller and he had no clue just said he had his itunes account on it I need to wipe his data and start fresh without screwing up the jail break ??

    Is the phone factory unlocked or jailbreak unlocked?

    Fudge the seller says he doesnt know if its jailbroke or factory but says he was told not to update it through itunes does this mean its jail broke with android sometimes firmware updates relocks bootloader I really need it for ical is it still possible to use Ical if its jailbroke if not I need to tell the seller not to ship

    If he says not to update that means its a jailbreak unlock find out what the baseband is from the seller before he ships if it's 6.15.0 you will have a hard time restoring, if its not 6.15.0(which I the iPad baseband) you can easily update through iTunes and get a factory unlock(which I can help you with also).

    Ok thanks I just sent the seller an email in his description I only see what version of Ios he is running and its 5.1.1 unless 5.1.1 has different radio than 6.15.0 Is it possible to flash custom firmware on iphones like android if need be. Im currently running JB on my sensation been flashing androids since eris so im no noob to flashing just not with mac

    Ya it's possible there called custom ipsw you need to either create it with a Mac or know someone reliable to get it from the wrong can damage the phone specially if the baseband is the iPad 6.15.0 baseband. 5.1.1 is just the ipsw that's on there if everything is stock baseband wise you can restore the phone and jailbreak it with one of the jailbreak apps not sure which one is best for 3GS gotta look into it more if you need to do that

    Exactly just make sure it's has the original baseband and not an iPad it's a huge headache with an iPad baseband I know from experience. Need anymore info on iPhones feel free to pm me this is one of my specialties from jailbreaking to unlocking and a lot more
