Default iPhone 8Gb (unlocked) [SOLD]

SOLD

Guys,

I am selling my unlocked iphone of 8Gb plus the AGENT18 eco shield. the phone has only 18 hours 29 minutes of talk time on it and 385Mb of data transfer on it so it is practically new. it currently has the firmware 1.1.4 with no problems at all. it has Installer and Cydia (it uses apt-get from Debian) package managers. The phone also has a screen protector non-glossy so there are no greasy fingers marks.

It is listed on a popular bid based site here

if you are interested PM me here and i will cover part of the S/H or i can also include an HTC 8125 (cingular 8125) pda with windows mobile, slider keyboard, blue tooth, wifi, etc.... etc...













i have bigger pictures. let me know if you want them.


here is the HTC phone that i referer a few lines up:

Some one asked me what does 'unlocked' means in this case via PM.

Here is a Definition:
Quote:
Some cell phones are designed to use a Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) card, or microchip that stores subscriber data. The SIM card is issued by a carrier and provides cell service by activating any phone into which it is inserted. A locked phone, however, will only recognize a SIM card from a particular carrier. If the cell phone is unlocked, it will recognize a SIM card from any carrier. The "lock" is a software setting that keeps the cell phone "loyal" to one carrier.

In areas like the United States where carriers offer free or deeply discounted phones with cell plans, the phones are commonly locked so that they will not work with other carriers. Carriers claim this is necessary to subsidize the cost of the phones. After a period of time, a carrier might agree to unlock the phone upon request, perhaps charging a fee. However, due to proprietary settings sometimes installed in locked handsets, the phones don't always function correctly with other carriers, even once unlocked.

From the viewpoint of the consumer, the practice of carriers locking phones and using proprietary settings defeats many of the benefits of SIM handsets. Complaints led to a class action suit filed in California in June 2004 by American watchdog group Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights (FTCR). Ideally phones should be left unlocked, or at least unlocked after the initial contract expires.

One way to get an unlocked phone without proprietary settings is to buy it new from a third party vendor in its original, unlocked state. The downside is that the price is commonly close to full retail. Some consumers might find it tough to dish out big bucks for a phone that they can get for free with a plan. The advantage is that the third party unlocked phone should work equally well with any carrier that uses SIM cards.

Unlocked cell phones are in such demand that third party services will unlock your cell phone for a fee. This doesn't guarantee the phone will always work correctly, as proprietary settings might remain. There are also hacking instructions online to unlock many models of phones, but a phone that is unlocked improperly can be rendered inoperable.

Carriers operating on the GSM network use SIM cards. In the United Sates, this includes Cingular Wireless, now one with AT&T Wireless, and T-Mobile. Carriers that use the competing CDMA network do not yet use card-enabled phones. These carriers include Sprint PCS, Verizon and Virgin Mobile. The CDMA equivalent of the SIM card the R-UIM will be used by these carriers in the future. R-UIM cards are already in use in some parts of Asia.

The HTC is locked with cingular.
Not prior to the sale... I can try after the sale, before sending it... but if something hapens it is. Buyers fault.

the bestthat I can do is research how to unlocked download the nesesary applications and send a cd with all that along with the iPhone and the htc.

the other thing that I can do is ask AT&T to unlock my phone (the htc) since it is out of contract... But I think they will not do it

Guys,

I made a miscalculation, if i ship both phones (the HTC and the iPhone) this weekend, i will be without any phone (since i dont have land line at home) for about 2 weeks (until the 11th). I know that a deal is a deal so the iPhone+HTC8125 deal still on.

I have come up with an offer to who ever wins the bid... if i can borrow the HTC until the 11th i will give you for free 1Gb storage card for the HTC so that you can have plenty space for taking pictures, your music, documents, spread sheets, etc... and a case for the HTC. plus ... of course i will pay for shipping.
