    If you restore the phone I believe that the passcode should be lifted and you should be able to get in it again.

    Just dont restore from back up. The password lock will come back if you do so. Set phone up as new.

    Oh...why did you upgrade... You cant JB and unlock now.

    I assumed youd restore and not upgrade... Do you have your SHSHs for 4.0 or 4.0.1? Check with TinyUmbrella by clicking "Display SHSH"

    i dont know any information regarding a stolen iphone but despite that, everything will work fine, u just can't call
    hopefully apple releases 4.1 firmware soon, then a new jailbreak/unlock should be out by then

    So do you think I should hold onto this phone or sell it for parts on eBay because I can't make any calls or receive them?
    I feel like crying tbh lol

    hmm, i assume you are in the UK because you stated that you have o2 network, am i right?

    and you bought the iphone 4 from someone, where does that seller live?

    anyways just hold on to the phone and wait till the 4.1 firmware is release, hopefully there should be a new jailbreak/unlock for 4.1 firmware

    so you have the o2 sim card in the phone and it says no signal?
    do you know if you have a US iphone (At&t exclusive) or a UK iphone (factory unlocked)

    well actually the difference is on an factory unlock your o2 simcard should work and get signal on your iphone 4 regardless to upgrading firmware.
    but since you said your not getting signal but your phone is working perfectly but just cant make calls you have an US iphone (At&t exclusive) meaning at&t is the only carrier that will work on that phone (Locked), not t-mobile, o2 network, rogers etc...

    what does it say when you connect the phone to itunes with the sim inserted?

    when itunes is open and sim inserted in phone it just works as normal and syncs to itunes but with no signal to make calls?

    could someone please answer this question,if this phone has been reported lost/stolen which i think has happened and now i have been sold a stolen phone.if it has been deactivated by apple , o2 companys will there ever be a solution for me to unlock and use this phone again to call and recieve calls?thanks

    got this fixed thanks for all the help fellas
