blacksn0wWell, I did it. I jailbroke my iPhone 3GS using blackra1n (RC3) and unlocked it with¬†geohot’s blacksn0w.

Used the super clear and concise tutorial on www.iphoneincanada.ca.

Mostly seems to be working OK so far – especially Skype over 3G, using VoIPover3G, which is the main reason I took the plunge.

Plus the fact that I’ll be in the UK soon and can’t wait to see if the unlocking worked.

Only thing right now, is I don’t seem to be able to send text messages…come on, Rogers, give me a break, I’ve got unlimited texts/ MMS anyway. Jeez.

UPDATE: Text messages now working Рtook about 30 minutes for the Rogers network (Canada) to play nice. No more red exclamation points. Woo hoo.

Also, visual voicemail wasn’t working at first, but I called myself, left a voicemail and once it came through (about 10 minutes later) all my visual voicemail data was there.
