You will need to do a forced restore on iphone to resovle the iphone passcode lost problem. but when you do a forced restore on iphone, you will wipe all content from the iphone. To do a forced restore hold the HOME button, then connect to the USB cable and continue holding for a LONG time (a minute or more). Once iTunes responds release the button and your iphone will be restored.
or you can try to plug it into iTunes with it at the unlock screen. Somewhere it should say “Unlock your iPhone” or something like that in iTunes. Click it. Otherwise do a restore by going to the screen where it shows how much memory you have used up in iTunes and click “Restore”. Restore it as a new device (not from back up) in iTunes. After that, you can just sync your media and apps back onto it.

When you restored/updated your iphone, it locked it again. So its trying to activate your AT&T service to the iphone but encountering an error, stopping it from activating.
You have unlock your iphone again unfortunately.
You can get it up and running by putting an AT&T sim card into it and plugging it back into itunes.

Hi, i have an iphone 3gs, and has unlocked it. but yesterday i updated the iphone with new version from itunes, and after updating my iphone is not working atall. its shows as emergency call.


An unlocked phone must NEVER be updated. Updating the software ios takes out the unlocked version and replaces it with an Apple/AT&T locked version

So your gonna have to get it unlocked again, and this time. don't ever update it. Sync is ok, but never update.

Iphone 3GS jailbroken and unlocked 3.0.1 - emergency call mode


Apple's recommendation worked for me... Unplug the USB cable. Turn the phone off. Then hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable.
follow the link below,
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808?viewlocale=en_US

Alternate option is,
just have him keep trying to put it into DFU mode over and over again, sould work with in 1-10 tries. if you get stuck on something like this, i suggest he just keep trying to do the same thing, change things around, unplug things and then plug em back in.

good luck on not being stuck. stay with 1.1.2!
