Hi everyone, I'm from Holland and I just got my US iphone I bought of ebay. Everything works EXCEPT the most important feature...yeah...CALLING! So I've searched and stumbled upon this...
10-05-2007, 03:26 AM #1HELP! Unlocked iPhone (1.0.2) BUT No service!
I'm from Holland and I just got my US iphone I bought of ebay. Everything works EXCEPT the most important feature...yeah...CALLING! So I've searched and stumbled upon this community and was hoping somebody could help!
Regardless of the provider Sim card I use I get "no service" in the top left corner and can't make calls. Browser/wifi/gps all works (haven't tested bluetooth yet).
Oh and from time to time I get a pop-up stating
"Sim Locked - <OK> or <Unlock> But it always disappears too fast so I can't click on it.
If somebody has a solution please help!
oh and I guess it was unlocked using Nullriver as it has the installer under "sources"
THANKS in advance everybody!!!!

Make sure before doing this to unload the com.apple.CommCenter
This can be done either on the iPhone itself (terminal) or SSH'ing into the iPhone. When you run the command, you'll see a bunch of log entries and then presto, you'll get a signal.
You can get the file "ICE03.14.08_G.eep" from the Firmware ramdisk. I'm sure it's also floating around somewhere too.

I've in the same situation. Everything seemed to install and unlock but I get no signal. These instructions are "greek" to me. Can you step-by-step it? Thanks.

So what do you need to do?
Use iBrickr? and then what?
Where you can find the file?
Can you download the file from somewhere?
What are the steps? Make it dummy proof!
I bet that not only me but a bunch of other will appreciate all the help possible. Thanks in advance.
Any word on this? I have seen a lot of people taking a look at the forum but no answers!!!

For those of you still having problems, use this link:
My phone wasn't working all weekend long, everything but phone features. this thread shows you how to downgrade the baseband and then unlock the phone to use your sim card.
Worked for me, it looks harder than it is...
