I DONOT HAV SIM CARD RIGHT NOW SO IT WILL NOT SHOW ANY THING UNTILL I INSERT SIM


Until you insert in a valid sim for the iPhone 3G it will not activate. If you want to, you can jailbreak & unlock the phone to give you access to the phone without a valid sim. Greenpois0n and PwnageTool are two examples of tools that you can use to jailbreak/unlock your iPhone 3G.

You need to jailbreak it again.

Itunes doesn't recognize SIM. iphone on emergency status only. Any fixes?


You need to put in the original carrier sim to activate it. You can put your sim card after activating it.

Hi can u help with my iphone 3g. it is stuck on invalid sim and emergency mode. how can i get this off? and is there a way to unlock a iphone 3g 3.1.3?


Here is what you have to do. Get a friend that is on the same carrier as the sim card that is in your phone.

Next take your sim card out and put a friends (same carrier) sim card in and restore it. When it is done it will still be in emergency mode. When it says invalid sim put your original one back in it and after about 30 seconds it will go back to normal.

This solution just fixed my iphone 3g so this should work.

Best of luck, Michael Proctor

My iphone is only for emergency call only!


The easiest solution is to put in a sim card of the carrier you bought the iPhone from. If you can't do that you need to jailbreak and CID unlock the iPhone.

Without knowing which model, firmware or any details at all (as you provided none). I can only refer you to a tutorial on how to jailbreak an iPhone:

On the 3.0 firmware: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4254
On the 2.x.x firmware: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1558

Iphone 3G stuck on emergency call mode..


Try to reinstall a jailbroken version of the iPhone OS.
Do not (ever) use reset to factory if you need the device to be jailbroken to function (e.g. in case you are using an officially unsupported operator/plan)
