Why didn't I post yesterday? It's because I was busy unlocking my iPhone. Yes!!!
I used to have AT&T and an iPhone that someone gave to me. I eventually dropped my AT&T service, but continued to use the phone as a glorified iPod. It has been working great for a long time. I have T-Mobile, now, which the iPhone can be unlocked for, but I never tried to unlock my iPhone because I didn't want to jack it up. (After all, it was making perfectly good music while I wrote Dry Humor Daily. Why would I want to?)
Anyway, I was updating the firmware on the iPhone in order to use some wireless headphones I purchased. Bad move! iTunes forgot to mention that when you restore your iPhone in order to update the firmware, you have to reactivate it with AT&T! (In other words, I couldn't even use it to play music any more...) My reaction was something like this:
"Son of a . . . . ."
Then it occurred to me that I officially had nothing to lose by risking jailbreaking my device. So I did some extensive reading and decided on a method on how to do it and got to work. And voila! Music and the ability to text like white lightning! I'm in a happy place, now. :)
