Re: Iphone will restore but wont do jailbreak or unlock...
You cannot use unlock sims for iOS version 3.0 up to the latest 4.0.1.
It's better to software unlock. Read my guide on jailbreaking and unlocking all Apple mobile devices like the iPhone 4, 3GS or 3G, iPod touch, or the iPad. Just click the link below:

Try this tijanotu:
You will need these files/program: 1. Ziphone 3.0 program 2. Ziphone Firmware Files 1.1.2, AND 1.1.4.To get these files open Ziphone 3.0 then Click Help and Support, then middle box on top of page Web Links Firmware Files 1.1.2 and 1.1.4 (to make it easier to find I always save everything to the desktop) 3. Kiphone http://www.iclarified.com/entry/comments.php?page=1&enid=1536#commentsanchor Not sure if all these steps are needed for success, I am just putting it all down becuase this is exactly what I did to get my cell signal back. First, I uninstalled itunes 7.7. Then I downloaded and installed itunes 7.5. At this point you will have to rename your itunes libray folder. Instructions are here: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1504 Next I downgraded the iphone to 1.1.2 using the link above. Downgrading steps: Connect phone to computer Open Ziphone 3.0 Click on Prepare for Upgrade (this will put iphone into DFU mode) Now you have to restore using itunes 7.5 (which will open up as soon as the iphone goes into DFU mode.) In itunes hold down SHIFT key (FOR WINDOWS) while pressing RESTORE. This will allow you to browse for the firmware file 1.1.2 you previously downloaded. Click on the 1.1.2 restore file and hit OPEN. This will begin the restoring process. You will probably get an error code noting the restore wasn't successful. Ignore this unless the error code number is in the 1600's. After this I tried to jailbreak my iphone using Ziphone 3.0 but wasn't successful so I: Repeated the restore process but his time restoring to 1.1.4. Got the same error saying that restore wasn't successful, which I ignored. Then I closed itunes, went into Ziphone 3.0 (iphone still connected to computer) and clicked on Do it all! Jailbreak worked fine except I still had no cell signal. To fix this I went to: Iclarified, (the BEST iphone website *******!!) Got Kiphone patch (see Number 3 above) installed it and got my cell service back.
i had the same problem what i did was installed firmware 2.0 on my iphone but i could not unlock it what i did then was uninstalled itunes 7.7 and installed itunes 7.5. Then i put my iphone into Recovery mode , which can be done by pressing both the home button and the power button down until the iphone turns off and then once it had turned off i released my finger from the power button still holding down the home screen button. Then once itunes had recognised it was in recovery mode i held down shift and clicked on restore at the same time. for this u need have the iphone firmware 1.1.4 download u can find this by going to http://www.iphoneatlas.com/2008/02/26/iphone-software-114-released/ and clicking on 165 MB standalone download. Once u have downloaded this select it in the menu that will appear by doing by selecting restore whilst pressing shift at the same time. once this process has completed any errors apart from 1600, 1601, 1602 and 1603 are bad and u should redo this process any others can be ignored. Now to unlock,jailbreak and activate your phone u will need to use ZiPhone which can be downloaded from www.ziphone.org. once u have downloaded and installed it make sure your iphone is connected and recognized by itunes click do it all. once this process is completed your iphone is ready for use!
i had something similar where my iphone just freezes and goes back to home 3 seconds after i go to the phone part of the iphone. I just went to settings>RiP Dev (something I downloaded after jailbreaking)>RiP Dev Products > Kate and there Look for a checked application called facelift. I unchecked it and my calling worked again. It was cause Facelift is not compadable with Winter Board (another app dled from installer) If this doesnt solve the problem then... sorry :x
Sounds like you were trying to jailbreak your phone and it failed. You need to get your phone back into DFU mode and do a full restore to version 1.1.3. Then use ZiPhone (ziphone.org) to jailbreak your phone. Use these instructions to get your phone into DFU mode and restore your phone:
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
