How to Unlock a 3G Phone

    • 1). Connect the cable to the iPhone. Connect the other end of the iPhone cable to a universal serial bus (USB) port on the Mac or personal computer. Wait for the icon of the iPhone to appear on the desktop.

    • 2). Launch the iTunes program that is included with a Mac and provided as a free download for personal computer users by double-clicking its icon inside of the "Applications" folder (Mac) or by selecting it from the "Start," "All Applications" pop-up menu.

    • 3). Right-click on the icon of the iPhone in the left column of the iTunes program beneath the "Devices" tab. Select "Back Up" from the pop-up menu. Wait as a progress bar fills in from left to right at the top of the iTunes program.

    • 4). Go to a free iPhone unlocking website, for example, the JailBreakMe website (see Resources). Follow the onscreen menus to configure the backup for the iPhone 3G. Press the "Jailbreak" button on the website to unlock the iPhone 3G.

    • 5). Wait as the iPhone 3G downloads a series of programs and reboots itself a number of times. Disconnect the iPhone cable from the iPhone and from the Mac when a confirmation window on the website states that it is time to do so. Exit the iTunes program.
