Wow, does EVERYONE crack apps nowadays??
In your case, did you run blackra1n? Blackra1n is supposed to hacktivate your phone, which is apparently what the problem is with yours (not activated).

Error 23 is a baseband/radio error. It occurs when an unlock / baseband flash fails.
Put the phone in DFU mode, and do a restore to 3.1.2...and set up as a new phone not from a backup. Then jailbreak with blackra1n, and unlock with blacksn0w if needed.
