    Try downgrading to 1.0.2 and virginizing. Guides in Wiki section.

    sell it on ebay. (keep your sim card)

    you'll get most of your money back.

    then buy a used iPhone thats locked off of craigslist and then re-activate it w/ ur new sim card.

    So is there no way to fix these problems? I have the same problem, but my Wi-Fi is also greyed out and I got the 0049 IMEI.

    I finally got rid of the incorrect sim error..... I had to downgrade to 1.0.2. via ibrickr it was a paint in the arsh! i downgraded 1.0.2 with ibrickr i wasnt able to completely unlock but was able to access it through ibrickr. i then went to apptapp and installed installer then went independance and installed shh and bsd all on 1.0.2 and then activated through independance and was able to completely accesss the phone but not able to read card still.... i went to i.unlock.no and installed it to my sources and ran the virginizer and it freaking worked!


    im still leary about trying to unlock it for anysime but now it recognizes a att sim no problem.
