    Default Got a new screen and now this?help please
    Hey guys..about 3 weeks back i got a little water in my iphone 3GS..i left it to a repair shop and just got it back a few hours ago, they replaced the screen.

    When i left it in my phone was fine just no backlight, the phone is jailbroke and unlocked,all was fine. I tried putting my 02-UK sim back in as normal a few minutes ago and now i get the 'your selected network is restricted' etc..basically my phone is now an ipod touch..any reasons for this or any solutions on how to get my service back?

    Iphone 3GS
    Version 4.2.1 (8C148a)
    Carrier 02 9.1
    Model MC131B
    Firmware 06.15.00

    Any help is much appreciated, thank you. Jody

    That sounds like the phone has been blacklisted. Did you buy this second hand like off craigslist or ebay??

    Have you tried restoring the fw and then jailbreaking and unlocking again?

    Thanks for your reply mate, i bought it off a guy at work like 6 months ago..i think he was on contract because back then when i put my sim in i said please insert original sim, so then i just jailbroke it and unlocked it myself, that was my first time doing that.

    No i havent tried anything like that yet, what would be your advice or am i screwed?

    I would definitely try to restore to cfw 4.2.1 or even restore to cfw 4.3.3 since you are using the 6.15 bb. Then install ultrasn0w through cydia. Make sure you have you shsh blobs saved of course.

    If the device is indeed blacklisted then there is nothing you can do but get the original owner (whoever submitted the imei to the carrier) and have them release the ban on it.

    cfw=custom firmware. Since you are on the ipad baseband for the unlock you cant restore to stock firmwares and will have to create a custom firmware either with sn0wbreeze or pwnage tool.

    I would first save the shsh blobs using Tiny umbrella (just connect the device and hit the save shsh button) then download the stock 4.3.3 firmware and use Sn0wbreeze 2.7 to create a 4.3.3 custom firmware and then restore to that. That should take care of the jailbreaking. Then in Cydia you install ultrasn0w for the unlock.
