My att phone worked great using the greenpoisOn app that i just downloaded, however my rogers phone is shut down and I cannot start it up, nor will it show up on my computer.

I am expecting an important call in 4 hours, would appreciate any help here.

Both are iPhone 4 with the latest apple software

If you are on 4.2.1 then I'd guess your baseband/modem firmware (settings/general/about) is 03.10.01, if that is the case then you can't currently unlock that baseband version. Apparently there is an update for the unlock tool ultrasn0w for iphone4, coming after the release of 4.3 by Apple. So if itunes offers you an update to 4.3 in the near future you must decline or you may lose your chance of an unlock. To get the latest news on the unlock visit Dev Team blog - http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ - as that is the first place it will be announced. Once ultrasn0w update is released, you get it via Cydia and install it and then you will be unlocked and be good to go with your fiji sim as long as it's a micro sim or a normal sim cut correctly to size.

If you sync with itunes your Appstore apps will get backed up, your Cydia apps will not get backed up or deleted, to back those up you can use pkgbackup aptbackup or similar available via Cydia

If it's stuck in DFU try holding both home & power buttons until you see the Apple logo, then allow to reboot to springboard.

MyWi, but remember, it uses your personal data, and if you use to much, they might charge you a tethering fee.

Tetherme might be something you want to look at, if you haven't already.

All is well, thanks so much for the help. BOTH phones work as they are both connected to the same facebook account.

Here are a couple of other questions.

If I take the phone to Fiji, can I know put in one of their sim cards? Or is unlocking something yet different. If I sync this with my iTunes, are the new apps zapped, or are they backed up to the iTunes?

Thanks

I jailbreak it with the 4.2.1 with Greenpoi0n, and did get everything installed.

I take it that is not the same as unlocking?

No, that's jailbreaking, it allows you to run third party apps not allowed by Apple, the best being ultrasn0w, see my recent answer above if you haven't read it yet
