The new iPhone software update has a new baseband update. So if your iPhone was jailbroken, you are unable to unlock the baseband.

Hi i tried to upgrade my iphone 3g software version but during upgrade it occured an eror and now i cant go into my iphone. how can i reeboot to normal previous services please advise

Put it into dfu mode then restore/update it.

Open iTunes, get it ready. Turn your phone off. Then hold down the home button on the bottom, plug the phone in (with home still held down) and wait till iTunes finds it.

If that fails. Which it might.

Hold down the home and the power/lock button at the same time till the usb/apple logo shows. Then plug it in and let it restore

Hi i updated my iphone software with 3.1.1 and now its already updated it says to connect with itunes but the itune shows to insert a compatible sim.pls help

You had an unlocked iPhone, but updating the iPhone through iTunes to 3.1 or 3.1.1 or 3.1.2 will REMOVE any and all locks. Now the phone is locked again to the original carrier, AT&T. You need to have someone unlock the phone for you again, and once it is unlocked, never update from iTunes!
Good luck! EJ
