    Hi, yes you can unlock 3g, I unlocked mine couple of years back.
    Think I had to go the route of ipad FW, then to iOS that could be broken.
    IIRC I used ultra snow - google is your friend here.

    Thanks to rmj2663

    Apparently it has the wrong baseband?
    This one is 05.15.04 which isn't covered according to Iclarified.

    do think you can downgrade that baseband will have a check when get five mins, other options is just follow the links on my unlock guide and have orange unlock it, as long as they used it for a while then shouldnt be any problem getting it unlocked

    Thanks to Mobileman

    Lmao it's my mum using it and she only uses it for calls and txts so it's perfect for her.
    if it's hassle then I will just yell her to buy another.

    You can downgrade the BB and unlock free.
