    Default Sim Locked - Need help desperately
    All

    I was following a guide to virginize by my from 1.0.2 and upgrade to 1.1.1 then to 1.2.

    I have managed to get 1.1.1 on the phone, but my SIM is locked on the activation screen (says insert an unlocked and valid SIM).

    I've really got no idea where to go from here........bit of **** up !

    Can anyone help in terms of what i need to do to proceed or to start again to get the phone working ?????

    Post your steps please. What I think is, that you've virginized and gone uptill 1.1.1. You phone WILL be locked at that state cuz you've virginized it at 1.0.2. Now use anySIM 1.2.1u to unlock. After it says unlocked successfully, you still wont have calling functionality. Dont bother. Just install oktoprep, upgrade to 1.1.2 and jailbreak! You will have full signal then!

    What if i lost the AT&T SIM (I am using a different one)?
    It says I need a valid or unlocked SIM. I try to follow the directions from www.hacktheiphone.com but i cannot do anyrhing because of the locked SIM.
    Does it mean i can never unlock my iPhone? Is there a way to enter the PIN and unlock the SIM (the phone in this virgin state doesn't prompt for SIM PIN entry)
