Your iPhone is probably still locked. You first need to unlock it. To do so, go to google.ca and type in ZiPhone. Download the software needed and follow the tutorial that comes with it. You should be able to unlock it and use any simcard you like.

If your phone is infact unlocked, and still displays that message, go into Installer in your phone, and install iWorld. Then select the country that the simcard is from and your problem should disappear.

The iphone 3gs says no service but i have the sim card inserted


Firstly check your sim in another phone to see if it works...if it does its the phone - antenna issues. if the sim doesnt work in another phone its most likely a problem with the network so best try contacting them or another sim

if it does turn out to be the phone try to restore your phone as a new, if this makes no difference check to see if your in warrenty still and Apple will repair/replace your phone :0)

Hope this helps ..

Use the following steps to restore your iPhone.


***** IF YOU CANT SEE YOU IPHONE IN ITUNES OR IT IS STUCK AT THE APPLE LOGO - POWER DOWN YOUR PHONE - HOLD DOWN THE HOME BUTTON FOR AROUND 6SECS WHILST CONNECTING TO ITUNES - RELEASE BUTTON - ITUNES WILL THEN APPEAR WITH MESSAGE SAYING IT HAS DETECTED IPHONE IN RECOVERY MODE & CONTINUE TO RESTORE YOUR PHONE - FOLLOW FROM STEP 6! ) *****
  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.

  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).

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

    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, 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.

  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be able to see the following in iTunes:

Logo itune and no servise


Hi there,

If the iPhone is brand new, it has to be activated using the iTunes software on the pc, plug the iPhone in and follow the guide.

as for the iPhone saying no service and insert SIM, the iPhone will only work with O2 (UK) and Verizon (USA) unless the phone is unlocked to be allowed for use by all carriers.

if you find out that the phone isnt unlocked you will need a SIM Card for either O2 or Verizon Depending on which country you're from !

Iphone doesnt detect in Itunes and Usb wall charger doesnt work.


Based on your message it looks like Itunes reupdated the firmware of your Iphone back to the original factory firmware hence it is back to the Locked firmware. When you hit restore in Itunes it will check the Apple website for the correct firmware and load it. You will have to have the phone unlocked again. I would suggest you go to a cellphone repair center and have them unlock the phone again.
