You need to activate with a sim from the company that supplied your iphone, o2 in the uk, or at&t in the us. You can normally get payg ones on ebay for about £3 in the UK, presumably its the same for US customers

Hi there I have my sim card installed in my iphone but it says no sim first it stuck in activation mode and I tried to activate it by putting the sim card in and connect it to the itunes but I got error...


Hi there,

Firstly, because your phone is now jailbroken the software may now be faulty and you may have recurring problems with it.

But you should restore your iPhone as a new iPhone, it will wipe EVERYTHING, from the phone but it will also mean your working from a "clean" phone as it where, it will put it back to how it was from the day you took it out of the box.

Follow the details below to restore your iPhone as a new iPhone and then connect it back up to itunes with the sim inserted to activate it, also if you receive any messages on itunes about carrier settings, choose to update as these are what you need to have your network function. Although as I mentioned earlier, I cant guarantee you that your phone will be working and sorted as it is now jailbroken and doing this permantly alters the phones software.

Hope this helps (please leave feedback)

1 - Load up lateset itunes on your computer
2 - Power down your phone completely - swipe to power off
3 - Hold down the home button (circle button on front of phone) for around 6secs and still holding down connect to the computer
4 - When you receive a message on itunes saying that an iphone has been detected in recovery mode and needs to be restored. Continue with this
5 - On the summary page select the restore option
  1. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another. **dont worry if your not asked to do this, you are restoring your phone as new so a back up isnt needed**

  2. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you.

  3. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:

    After a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.

  4. The final step is to restore your device as a new iphone

IPhone keeps telling me no SIM when the SIM works fine


Take the SIM out of the phone and carefully rub the sim contacts with a pencil eraser. Do the same with the contacts in the phone and try again.

Iphone 2g lock after reset.


Find somebody with an AT&T sim card, put it into the phone and plug it into itunes to get it up an running. Otherwise if your not using AT&T you're gonna have to jailbreak the phone to use it. If your a prepaid AT&T customer, you can activate it but you gotta call AT&T at 800 331 0500

I tried to restore my iphone now its not detecting my sim


Go here and download the file that is for your phone. Connect in itunes and put the mouse over restore. Hold shift and click restore. Use the file you downloaded and let it work. You will have to use a at&t sim to activate it.
