Unforunatly when you hook the phone up to Itunes it updates and relocks itself. This is Apple and At&t's way of keeping it locked. You are going to have to get the phone unlocked again.

It looks like your iPhone just needs to be activated. As long as an active simcard is inserted and you connect it to iTunes, it should automatically activate itself after a few minutes. If it fails with an active simcard, you may have a reception issue. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.

My music shows up on my iphone only while connected to itunes.


Could be a bug in the jailbreak, I have seen this before. Restore the iPhone to original stock, locked software and re-jailbreak and unlock using the latest method from QuikPwn Dev Team. Once completed, it should resolve the issue.
