You will need to jailbreak your phone and unlock it again.

restore your phone to 1.1.3
download ZiPhone (http://www.ziphone.org/)
run ziphone -j
(check for options to unlock your phone)
If you don't have options there, you can install "anysim" from the "installer" app that will appear on any jailbroken iphone

Hi,

Follow these steps to try and get your phone running - although I cant guarantee it is unlocked, you'll have to take it up with whom you bought the phone off but if they unlocked "jail broke" it themselves and not via their network which they where locked to then it is most likely the phones software is altered with and restoring it will make no difference....


Power up your computer & itunes & make sure you have updated your itunes then power down your iphone and follow the steps below!
  1. Hold down the home button and continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears you can release the Home button *** if this doesn't appear then release button and hold down again for around 6secs and then still holding the button plug into the computer***

  2. The above message will appear in iTunes
  3. Continue with the restore option and when you get the screen to setup the iphone select restore as new iphone
Like i said before, if who you bought the phone from unlocked it themselves then its most likely the software is affected within the phone

Iphone showing no service


If it was bought unlocked for under $700 then it was unlocked illegally after updgrading to 3.0 it is locked again. If you upgrade to any of appples unpdates your phone will be locked each time and you will have to wait for an unlock solution to be released each time. Currently there is no way to unlock the 3g under 3.0 firmware only the 2g is unlockable to the 3.0...I know case i have one. Jailbreaking and unlocking are different.You have to downgrade your firmware to unlock it. Restore your phone via iTunes using one of your old backups, you should be fine.

IPhone 3G Error 0xE8000001


Where did you purchase your phone? however, you first need to update itunes to 8.0.2, that might solve your problem. Unless you have an unlocked phone then restoring your phone is useless because when you restore an iphone with itunes in the US without an att sim card it will actually lock the phone, but I do not think that is your issue. the two things you are seeing the connect to itunes and the emergency call system means that your phone is not properly activated. which is done by connecting it to itunes.

Iphone not recognizing SIM Card


I recommend you restore your iPhone, if you don't know how, i'll be happy to walk you through it. After that, upgrade to the new firmware. After you have upgraded, unlock it with the newest PWNing software. That should fix your problwm.

if you restored it, you're going to have to unlock it from scratch. PWN has a new tool out to unlock the iphone even if it's been "bricked". that's what i used when i accidentally restored my original iphone from 1.1.4 to 2.0 by mistake. works great. Just google the "download PWN iPhone 2.0" it's easy to use.

P.S. this may take some time if you've never unlocked a phone before, my first time took 1.5 hours.
