    Default Do I have any options?
    I have an iphone 5 on 6.0 (10A405) jailbroken with evasi0n on the uk carrier 3.

    Since the jailbreak my 3g isn't working so I was going to restore the phone but the only option is 6.1.3, resulting in no jailbreak.

    I have shh blobs on cydia for 6.1.2 but I believe these don't work.

    Do I have any options that will let me keep a jailbreak? Thanks.

    Can you try your SIM in a friend's phone (that you know works) and their SIM (also one that you know works) in your phone? If your phone is indeed the problem, then you've either been IMEI blocked or your phone has an issue. The first thing I'd have to suggest is restoring to a version of iOS that you have known good blobs for and is jailbreakable. You could possibly extract the SHSH blobs from your phone using iFaith or redsn0w and restore to iOS 5.0 again if all else fails... but you'll have to kick out of recovery mode after the restore.

    The other option is taking your phone into Apple (or Three, if they have your warranty) for service, but you'll need to be on the most current version of iOS (6.1.3) to have a chance at getting a replacement phone (also if you're out of warranty it won't be cheap... I'd estimate about one hundred and twenty quid).

    I'd better not have been IMEI blocked as I pay 37 a month for the privilege!!!

    I am still in warranty, thanks, and my daughter has an iphone 5 so will try the sim swap before I bite the bullet and update to the newest version.

    Thanks for the idea. Will let you know the outcome!!!

    Perhaps "IMEI block" isn't the best choice of words for this theory... but perhaps Three is having network difficulties in terms of not allowing your phone to connect to their network for a weird reason. If nothing else, could be worth ringing their customer support and asking if your account and phone are all okay on their end.

    Also keep in mind that the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4 use two different sizes of SIM card...

    Yeah, got my threads mixed up there. Whoops.

    Still worth calling Three and seeing if it's something on their end... but otherwise, yeah, warranty swap seems like it if a restore doesn't do it. If you're quick, you might be able to ask if they've got anything on iOS 6.1.2 for your swapout.

    Thanks all, tried the sim swap and it worked fine in daughters phone, and as all was fine before the jailbreak I have to assume it was that causing the problem.

    I did a factory restore and the phone is fine now, but minus the jailbreak so will have to wait again until theres one for 6.1.3.
