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

SIM card not supported in itunes


what you need to do is put your iphone in recovery mode then wait until itunes reconizes your iphone. it should say itunes has detected a iphone in recovery mode choose restore and that should take care of the problem, (if you backed up your iphone b4 you updated it) and if that doesnt work your still in luck because the dev team put out a new jail for 2.2.1 n lower try jailbreaking it using quickpwn hope this helps
