    Howdi all.. im a newbie here and have read a few tutorials and read me 1st threads.. but i think ( not 100% sure ) that most tutorials are for iphone 4`s that have already been activated.. now mines isnt activated.. ive created an itunes account but a few tutorials im reading are mentioning accessing your menu on the phone.. well i cant even get passed the connect to itunes logo on the phone..

    so my question to all is can i still open/unlock this phone ? i bought it on ebay and is LOCKED to t-mobile.. i dont even know what OS version it has.. so im really lost.. any info wud be appreciated thxx in advance..

    When you plug it into itunes it will show you the OS version without you needing to do anything - that way you can then look for a jailbreak that will "hactivate" your phone.

    personally id ask somebody you know who is with T Mobile to put the sim in your phone and activate then give it them back. I used to do that with my old O2 locked 3G as I am on Vodafone and my GF is on O2 so i just used her sim to activate it.

    Hey.. Does downgrading IOS on my iphone4 from 4.2.1 to 4.1.0 also causes downgrading baseband ???

    You baseband probably isn't compatible with ultrasnow. Check your modem firmware number in the about page of your settings against the list of compatible basebands in the ultrasnow description in cydia.

    There's no way to downgrade basebands. Not even by downgrading firmware...

    No way yet. There's not been a new unlock for over half a year now...
