Thread: Says I need SIM to update iphone. WHAT DO I DO?

    Default Says I need SIM to update iphone. WHAT DO I DO?
    When I plug the iphone into the comp it says

    "iphone can not be used with itunes because the sim card is pin locked or not installed. you must enter your sim pin or inset sim card into your iphone in order to activate it"

    Is there any way that i can get around that? What do I have to do? Also wondering if theres a way that i can put my friends sim card into the phone and have it work without registering it to at&t? thanks

    Were probaly going to have to have a moderator move this thread to the iPhone section. This section is for iTouch's only. Sorry.

    Moved. Anyways... Welcome to the forum :-) As far as your issue goes, what method did you use to unlock? Your solution is most likely to plug into iTunes, hit the RESTORE button. Then download iLiberty and re-unlock/jailbreak with that instead. You can find info on this up in the Guides section at the top.

    I got 2 iPhone's this week with the same problem. Firstly backup all your contents on your iPhone, this includes your media etc if you want to. Then reboot your iPhone into Recovery Mode (Use ZiPhone or iLiberty to boot into Recovery Mode) and press the Shift key whilst pressing Restore in iTunes. Find the 1.1.4 firmware file, if you haven't downloaded it already, google it or use for the download link. Let it restore, once it's done, download iLiberty. Then tick the necessary boxes, press Go! or whatever button it is.
