Iphone won't recognize sim


Your phone must be jail broken and unlocked to use non AT&T sim card. Be sure you have correctly installed redsn0w and ultrasn0w unlocker. If you have recently updated your phone that will undo your jailbreak and unlock. You will need to reapply them for the version of your iPhone OS if they are available.

Insert an unlocked???


Try clicking the 'Restore' button on the Summary page in iTunes, when connected to a PC. If that doesn't work, you'll have to take the phone back to an Apple store.
