    Are you on a pc or a mac?? It you are on a mac then its the key with the apple symbol on it and with a pc you should be hitting the ctrl key i believe.

    its saying "activate i phone connect itunes"

    i think i might have just undone all the unlocking that was done for me.

    Thats info that you should have said when you asked your question. Are you using t-mobile? What condition did you get the phone in, was it new? I assumed you wanted it to stock the way you got it from apple. Where did you get it?

    Well heres what you can do... You can go ahead and upgrade to 1.1.1 and then jailbreak it and get anysim1.1 on it, then it would be upgraded to 1.1.1 and unlocked again. So you would have to do this same thing you just did to get it to 1.0.2 but this time use a different file, it would be 1.1.1.ispw I believe.

    Heres the file:

    Then go to:
    and get the phone activated and back up and running in a jailbreak mode. Once it's activated you can go to that was put on your springboard from the activation process earlier, and install anysim1.1 so that you are unlocked to any carrier.

    I think thats the way to get it back up and running again. Someone should correct me if I'm wrong.

    now when i try to sync it it says "there is no carrier that supports the installed sim card"

    is there away around this

    Hmmm... Try a search because I use att sim card. There might be a hack around that. Does itunes say that error or does the phone say it?

    itunes say it not the phone

    So at least the phone works again. Do some searching budd because I am not sure about the syncing thing. I use att with jailbroken phone. Sorry. I didn't think that ir made a difference if you had an unlocked or not unlocked phone when you synced through Itunes.
