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.

Contact your current cell-phone provider.
For a fee, they can "unlock" your iPhone,
so that the next time that you connect it to iTunes on your computer, iTunes will "unlock" your iPhone.

If you have a "locked" iPod, connect it to iTunes, and do a "factory reset" on it.

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME ON MY IPHONE!!?


Your friend must have had her phone unlocked by some software like jailbreak.
This works fine so long as you don't reset it.
Unfortunately this information comes a little late for you but as it is your friend you bought it from maybe they could get it unlocked again or tell you how to do it?

Or maybe you could try yourself.

Remember Google is your friend and how to unlock 3g Iphone should give you more than enough results to find 1 that you can use.
