My friend updated the firmware by mistake and it has locked the iPhone 3G.
I am trying to restored the iPhone 3G firmware to 3.1.2
Can anyone tell me how I can unlock this phone?
I mean carrier unlock
Currently when it Boots i get this message
"the sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported"
Thanks a lot
Any help would really be appreciated

i dont know. I got the iPHone from him today and when i connected to iTunes, it said i should restore. I am restoring 3.1.2 firmware.
Now i get the error 1015 in iTunes
Also when I get this message "the sim card inserted in this iphone does not appear to be supported", I can only do emergency calls. An idea how i can find out the baseband info?

To find the baseband go to: Settings > General > About and then scroll down to the part where it says your modem/ baseband.

If you want to unlock it you will either have to get the carrier it is locked to to unlock it or upgrade to the iPad baseband. There is no going back if you go the iPad baseband route and it will break your GPS.

Yep like Simon said. You'll have to get the carrier to unlock it or use iPad baseband

going to carrier is not possible because of living in different continents
Can you please explain me the iPad baseband route?

Well, If you were on AT&T you could. I don't know much about iPad baseband, I'll look a tutorial up on YouTube

I only have the phone. No information about carrier. Last i know is that he got this phone from USA. No mention about carriers
04-10-2012, 02:56 PM #16
:P then idk. You can unlock it from AT&T if it is AT&T

so its a paper weight then ? :-( Can I get past through the emergency screen?
04-10-2012, 02:59 PM #18
As far as I know, no. But I could be wrong

You can hacktivate to get past the emergency screen. Redsn0w will do it, maybe one of the other programs you've already downloaded can too.
