    Don't you synch your contacts with your computer anyway?

    There is a way of getting rid of this error without jailbraking again - I'll see if I can find it again for you.

    Follow the steps below to get rid of the "different SIMdetected" message

    1. Use QUICKPWN procedure to Jailbreak and Unlock.


    2. Now you need to remove the previous activation, for that you need to follow the below procedures.

    2.1 Remove any SIM cards inside so you have access to cydia, than open cydia, and you are going to search and find the following applications, than install them

    - Open NTPD
    - Open SSH
    - Automatic SSH

    3. Download and Use WinSCP to connect to iPhone
    Download WinSCP


    Guide on using WinSCP with iPhone - See link below

    4. Follow the below steps:

    4.1 Download patched lockdown file from - See link below

    4.2 Navigate to to /private/var/root/Library/ and copy lockdown folder to your desktop (for backup just in case - this you need to do)

    4.3 Delete that folder from phone

    4.4 Unzip downloaded patched file and upload to phone to replace the folder you just deleted (make sure you replace the actual lockdown folder that has the files in it)

    4.5 Navigate into patched folder and make sure file permissions are set to 644 for all files (right click on "lockdown" and go to properties, than set file permission to 0644)

    4.6 Reboot phone

    thankyou that worked perfect, but i accidently deleted the library folder then recreated it, what was in that library folder that is important, other than the lockdown folder?

    There are folders called:
    AddressBook
    Caches
    Calender
    Cookies
    Keyboard
    Lockdown
    Preferences
    Safari

    Probably all your personal stuff.

    Try restoring from a backup and seeing if that gets these directories back.

    Good luck.
