    Have you ever had your device jailbroken? Also have you saved your SHSH blobs from previous iOS installs? What iOS version are you trying to install?

    Sounds like your trying to restore to 5.1.1, which can only be done if you have your blobs saved and have stitched a custom firmware to restore too.

    Error 3194

    Occurs when trying to install an old firmware and Apple's server disallows the installation. The only solution is to have SHSH backup and modify the hosts file to point to Saurik's Cydia Server where they are backed up (or localhost if you have it yourself).

    Not sure it will help but,
    Remove sim, reboot. replace sim.
    Toggle wifi and airplane mode on and off.
    Here is a thread/guide about activation, perhaps it may help. Good luck.
    UNLOCK 'In-Contract/Out of Contract' iPhones (3G, 3GS, 4, 4S) without Restoring!!!
