11-05-2007, 03:00 AM #1All was success.. except unlock "incorrect sim, this iphone must be used..."
I followed the hacktheiphone guide to upgrade from a 1.0.2 unlocked phone to 1.1.1 (i didnt notice that it would only work with a alreadi virginized phone). Oh well, that didnt work. Then i virginized, got back to 1.0.2. upgraded to 1.1.1 (using independence) and activated and jailbreaked. Everything worked, except the actual phone part. I used AnySim 1.1 to unlock and it said SUCCESS. I then rebooted and tried to enter my sim pass, no luck. The phone keeps saying incorrect sim, this iphone must be used with an approved SIM”. I also tried to activate and deactivate in independece again, but no luck. this is really annoying, because everything else works. Itunes store, youtube, wifi - everything. Exept the most important part, the phone. This is really killing me, because ive also tried to get it to work on a basic 1.0.2 again, but the same issue.
Does anyone know a solution to this? I thought i might not virginize it decently, but everything match in this guide (i compared the firmwares etc).
This guide i used (after i restored to 1.0.2) is http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php...nd_OS_X_iPhone
My IMEI is the same as on the box still.
Please help .. :-) I know some of you inhere are geniouses regarding the iphone :-)

yees-no.. i just got word that we should try to remove the simlock on the simcard (in another phone) and then put it back in the iphone again, since there could be a problem with the iphone and simlock.. im at work right now, so cant really try it out, but maybe u can... i really hope something will fix it, and i know it will be fixed at some time.. i just miss my phone so much

yees-no, try to put your sim in another phone, deactivate that its using the pinnumber, then put it in iphone again and try. i havent tried it, since im not home, but its worth a shot.

I think anysim is not working coz the IMEI number is wrong. The real number is behind the Iphone.
But if u go to settings - General - About -IMEI u will see another number.
To fix this we need to restore it to factory state.
I found this app under unlocking Tools but its not working with 1.1.1 .
Hope thats we will find a solution soon.

after virginizing the baseband to 3.x and firmware 1.0.2
u will need the anysim 1.0.1 or 1.0.2 to unlock the phone...
anysim 1.1 does not work on firmware 1.0.2 or lower...
u can get the older version of anysim from ibrickr via application browsing in it...
