    Create another one but this time choose activate iphone and do the same tasks again

    I see you have a no sim problem ,you are not going to get a functional iphone , maybe as Itouch .
    Well this is given free to you and at least you can listen to music and play games.

    Ok just one question i was reading and i found there are two types of custome firmware restores
    There are two types of Custom Firmwares available for download below.
    ACTIVATED: These custom IPSW files are for users who want to unlock their iPhone after jailbreak which means they are NOT on Official Carrier.
    NOT ACTIVATED: These custom IPSW files are for users who are on Official Carrier.
    So make your choice wisely.

    which one should i use i am going to download another one... how do i know if i download a custome activated or not activated i mean the phone has a sim card of his official carrier...

    Unactivated is the one you are having now , stucked at emergency but your iphone cannot see your atnt sim.
    Activated is when restored , you are at home screen but you cannot get signal unless Ultrasnow is installed for unlockable bb.

    Ipad bb is not stable , you will get drop calls , gps malfunction.

    I manage to get the wi fi working by putting it on airplane mode then rebooting and it worked... so there is no work around for the unlocking problem?

    When you put in your sim, does it recognse the sim ? Go and install Ultasn0w, install SAM and choose deactivate and activate with SAM.

    I only remember you install the two tweaks after adding the repo. The link should guide you
