    Post iPhone 4 - "No Service" after Jailbreak ? + Warranty Information
    I am running iPhone 4 iOS 5.0, bb 4.11.8
    I have 3 questions:

    1. After I Jailbroke it, my At&t sim card kept saying no service, I am not sure if it's the phone it self or it's due to the jailbreak. I bought the phone used from someone, so maybe there was already a problem there ? maybe bad esn or something ? what do you guys think ?

    2. After I Jailbreak it and i reverse back to official firmware and stuff, is my warranty still void ? is there anyway for apple to verify this ? I would like to send it in for repair since it already has warranty on it still.

    3. Should I stay with iOS 5.0 or go with 5.0.1 ? I heard 5.0.1 has some battery issue fix or something and that seems really good about now, but I also heard there are no battery issue fix as well.
    I am looking for a unlock soon so 5 or 5.0.1 would be better ?

    Did you jailbreak before or after you activated the phone?

    it was already activated by someone else's At&t sim card.
    then I took it home and jail broke it using ultrasn0w and clicked activate option.
    so it's activated using ultrasn0w.

    maybe thats why ? should i activate it using regular sim card rather then ultrasn0w ?

    Ultrasnow is an unlock not a jailbreak. Did you mean redsnow? Or snowbreeze?

    I had the same problem when I used snowbreeze, I had to redo my phone as a new phone then restore the programs then I jailbroke my phone with redsnow everything working fine now.

    Sorry, I meant I used sn0wbreeze to jailbreak it,
    but i also clicked "yes" to activate option.
    so i'm thinking, because it was activated that way,
    it was having problem ?

    I am going to re jailbreak it using redsn0w
    and see if that fixes the issue.

    That was the reason you have no service then. Redo the process with snowbreeze, this time do not activate the custom firmware. When you are on a official carrier like ATT you have to activate with that sim.

    oh i see,
    thanks for the info !

    also, regarding the warranty issue.
    is it still under warranty if i jailbreak and reverse it back to original firmware ?
    is there a way apple could find out and void the warranty ?

    As long as you restore and wipe the jailbreak your warranty should still be good on it.
