There's a possibility that the sim card slot on your Iphone 2g is grounded. Test another sim card first to see if it will shut your phone down. If it does then definitely it's grounded and should be replaced. Have it checked by an authorized apple technician.

For contact information, go to apple.com

    Just like what I posted if the same problem occurs with the other sim that means that sim card slot is grounded and should be repaired by an authorized apple tech or service center since there is nothing you can do on your own and doing a self fix may cause more problems

    It's happening on both sims so the terminals should be checked by an authorized technician

My iphone 2g has no sim card in it but it is stuck on the page where when i slide to unlock its only for an emergency call


It seems that your iPhone 2G is in need of activation. To accomplish this, there are 2 ways:
A. (With AT&T as your service provider)
1. If you do not already have an AT&T sim card, contact AT&T and ask for an AT&T sim card to activate service with them. Choose your plan and insert the sim card in the iPhone.
2. Connect the iPhone to iTunes and you will be prompted to follow a few steps to proceed with the activation process.
3. Sync your iPhone for the first time.
Once completed, you will have your iPhone activated and ready to use on the AT&T network.

B. (Without AT&T as your service provider)
1. You will need to download an application to jailbreak your iPhone. (This will essentially remove certain restrictions on your iPhone 2G that prevent you from utilizing your iPhone on another network, among other things).
2. Connect your iPhone to the computer and run your jailbreak application of choice.
Once completed, your iPhone 2G will be activated and jailbroken. The "emergency call" message will disappear, though you will be prompted with a "no sim card found" message until a sim card from AT&T (or another GSM carrier) is placed in the sim tray.

Invalid usim card


unlock phones are so unperdictable...there may not be a fix for this issue..other then getting an AT&T phone....and even if u are able to get it to start working again more then likely u wil continue to have many more isses..mainly becuz of the network changes..for example....using 3g and 3g only...last year the AT&T network was stil using both 2 and 3g network and there was even a few 2g SIM cards being sold in stores...now it almost all 3g..which of course complicates many things...even if u own a 2g AT&T phone a 3g SIM card can be and will be used on that phone....with unlock phones running on the 2g network the issues with not having a SIM card where possible...it was still unstable when wanting to use data services....but voice services were possible...now with everything going 3g...its makes things alot more complicated with AT&T if using a phone without SIM cards...if ur phone has the fuction to beable to shut off 3g networking and run on 2g.(like the apple iphone has) then try that....good luck

How to reregister iphone 2g with no contract


First option is to put a legit sim card. - this will be a problem if you bought your iPhone from another country.
2nd option is to jailbreak and unlock your phone. - if you've upgraded your iPhone to version 3.1.3, there's a great chance that you won't be able to do this option.
3rd option is to use a turbo sim which you can find on eBay. check out some items i've searched for you. - this option will work only if you have 2.30 or lower iPhone software version.
other than those 3, i don't know anything more.

CANT IMPORT SIM CONTACTS AFTER IPHONE 3.0 SOFTWARE UPDATE


The problem is, for whatever reason, the new iPhone firmware does not allow special characters to be imported onto the new phone.

So the only solution is to:
Get a different phone.
Put your SIM card into that phone.
Access your phone book from said phone.
Delete any contact using characters other that A-Z. This includes !@#$%^&*() And the like.

Once deleted just pop your SIM card back into your iPhone and import. It should now work.

Cannot import contact from sim card to iphone 3G


Turn off the iPhone before inserting the sim, insert sim, turn on, import contacts. If you put the sim in the phone without restarting it for some reason it doesn't get all the contacts sometimes.
