    Sounds like it may have not been actually been unlocked during the process. My suggestion would be to restore the phone in iTunes and then jailbreak and unlock again.
    Since you didn't say what version you are using,(2.2.1-3.0) PC/Mac here is a guide to jailbreak and unlock the 2G iPhone.
    I would update your iTunes to 8.2 and use RedsnOw to jailbreak and unlock. So easy. Good luck.

    RedsnOw has been found to be much easier and more stable. It will give you an option to unlock during the process, very smooth and easy, after you restore in iTunes to 3.0 it will only take about 5 minutes to jailbreak and unlock.

    Go here to this link and it will shed some light. It is a tree menu, just follow it and click on what applies to you, everything you need will be there.

    OK, here it is plain and simply.
    Update itunes to 8.2
    Leave the sim card in.
    Put your phone in DFU mode. (in DFU mode you will not get any sim error)
    Restore as a New phone. (do not set up from a back up)
    Jailbreak with RedsnOw. (check box to unlock)

    If your unsure how to put in DFU mode, do this.

    DFU mode
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

    Yes, 3.0 is what you want.
    Yes redsnOw, it will offer an unlock, click yes.
    Sim in phone the whole time.
    If you go to the link I gave you it will have pictures of every page of the process. READ everything first.

    lmao, ok your making this way harder then it is.
    I understand this is your first time but once you do it you will laugh and say, dam this was easy. If you have a problem, which you will not as long as you follow the directions. There is always help here on MMi.

    You can't screw your phone up. You can always restore it.

    For a 2g phone it is so easy. Update iTunes, just few minutes
    update phone to 3.0 5 to 8 minutes maybe
    jailbreak and unlock 3 to 5 minutes max

    First problem, did you update iTunes to 8.2?
    Did you put phone in DFU and then click restore in iTunes.
    If not in DFU you will get sim error.
    Yes, the Redsnow is a big file.
    Here is a video that may help you.

    If your in it for a quick go its not going to happen. For Itunes it can be at least an 80MB file... the software for the iphone firmware. another 250MB. Then redsnow which should not take as long as these other ones. If your running a bunch of download/uploads its really going to take a while. Use this time to watch a movie as it all downloads perhaps...

    Either way once you have all you need it really is pretty simple process to do for the 2G's. But you must have patience grasshopper. Skip a step and you may have to do things all over. The guides are very good.
