iPhone 4 iOS 7.0.6 nightmare!
- date: March 6, 2014
Right okay, here's my series of unfortunate events.
My girlfriend who inherited an iPhone 4 off a past relative had no use for it in the state it was in. Gave it to me unactivated with no knowledge of it's past or anything. Being (slightly) tech savvy I thought I'd try and sort it out for her.
I've managed to bypass the activation screen, get it to sync with iTunes, the lot. The only thing I'm unable to do now is unlock it. Having no information on this iPhone means I'm having to do this all with just the device itself.
It's on iOS 7.0.6, baseband 04.12.09, no idea what carrier it's on.
My question is, if I were to find out the carrier of it by either testing a ton of different SIM cards or otherwise, would I have any chance at unlocking it? Either using an online IMEI permanent unlock or through software (Cydia etc.)?
If not, will there ever be a solution? Or is it forever destined to be a glorified iPod?
