Any thoughts?
    This kind of happened to me. But when i tranfered the SIM card to my other phone (Blackberry Pearl) i noticed that in the menu the service option was off. So i turned back on and it was working fine (Blackberry) my iphone is still not recognizing the SIM card.

    Unhappy Help me
    I already try Eurisko's method, but it fails. I still having "No service" issue in my iPhone.

    When I ran bbupdater -e ICE03.14.08_G.eep, I get an error in one of the status lines

    "Error: couldn't retrieve version information: File not found."

    Is it correct??? or I'm doing something wrong.

    By the way...I found other forum about this issue.

    ¡¡¡"No Service" is an iPhone cancer!!!

    This might be because the CommCenter is still running. Haven't come across that error. Here's some instructions I just posted in another thread, maybe we should combine the two

    To start with, you need to download the following files:

    - ICE03.14.08_G.eep

    - bbupdater you can download from

    Manually place them into your iphone's /usr/bin folder using "ibrickr" .

    [to install OpenSSH on your iphone, first install via applications on ibrickr. Then through you can install OpenSSH]

    Once all files are in place, please do the following:

    Use Putty (on a PC) or Terminal (on a Mac).

    [putty download] (

    [on a PC]
    - run Putty
    - Host name is the IP address of the iPhone (example:
    - Port 22
    - User ID: root
    - Password: dottie

    [on a Mac]
    - Run Terminal
    - type: ssh -l root (again as an example)
    - password: dottie

    2. Once you have logged in type: cd /usr/bin

    - Now type: launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

    - Now type: bbupdater -e ICE03.14.08_G.eep

    - After you see DONE, type: launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

    Lastly type: exit

    You should now have a signal. If not, reboot the iPhone and THEN you should have a signal.

    PS: Hopefully you know how to assign an IP address to your iPhone. The easiest method is to set your Wireless router to broadcast DHCP. Then all you have to do is turn your WiFi on. Once connected, to locate your IP address on the iPhone, go to Settings -> WiFi -> [the name of your connected router (will have a checkmark beside it)] and you will see the assigned IP address.

    I got these steps from #iphone on ther irc and they did work for me. You may want to contact those guys live, if you continue to have problems.

    You don't use Cyberduck for the commands. You have to use Terminal. The command to get to the phone (from terminal) is
    ssh -1 YourPhonesIPAddress

    Default How I can bring my iphone from Active mode to normal mode?
    I was using a unlock iphone v1.1.1 but last week I upgraded v1.1.2 after that my phone has looked. I was trying to downgrade and fix that, I was successes to unlock my phone but could not unlock SIM by the following way.
    I entered *#307# press call, now used the back button on the top screen to remove *#307# , now entered 0 , pressed call, pressed answer, pressed hold, press decline. And I got the contact list. I edited contacts and type in "prefs://1F" as web-address and "" as an additional URL.Then I taped "prefs://11" now I selected my favorite WiFi gateway.Then I taped on jailbreak, clicked "Install AppSnapp and I unloked my phone only not SIM. To update I scroll down to Tweaks (1.1.1) then selected OktoPrep and click Install. After install I saw the massege on the screen that your phone is ready to update then I updated again v1.1.2. by using itunes and my phone completely looked again and I am unable to unlock. In that time I can see the emergency call screen and I applied same procedure to unlock but I could not get into my favorite WiFi gateway. I don’t know why I could not get in?
    After that I tried to use several ways to unlock it but could not. In this moment my phone is showing a yellow triangular at activation mode. I was trying to get into Normal mode with emergency screen but I could not. I do not know what I can do know. If you have any idea or any suggestion please let me know. I want your help. Please help me, please help help…..
    Best regards,

    Am I the only person here crying to point out that Apple cannot 'zap' your sim card through iTunes! They might entice you to update or restore but can't do anything to your sim card.

    I hope no one said this yet but call your service provider, first though make sure to put your SIM card in your old phone and as them to do a OTA. This is also called a "Over The Air Programming Update" <<If they don't know what it stands for :P

    Hope this helps!

    If this does not help then just go and buy a new SIM card from them.. It would cost you a max of $25.00

    Hi Guys . . .

    Please need some expert advice here PLEASE???

    Got a new 3g iPhone and pawned it. All seemed to work fine for about 2 hours and then I got a no service message where my service provider's logo should be.

    I followed the advice of the forum here and got a new sim card as I thought this could have been the problem. That turns out not to be it, even reset the network settings in general as well, with no success. Even tried to restore the phone and re-pwned it as well to see if that might work, but nothing . . . Still getting the no service message!

    Is there anyone out there who may be able to please assist and help in this regard please? I'm very anxious to get my phone back up and working please?

    Thank you kindly in advance . . .
