    You can also bring your Iphone to an AT&T store, they will have a sim to test it out for you.

    Sounds like it was jailbroken and hactivated, which is what is done for all iphones that are not going to use AT&T!

    AT&T sims must be activated through Itunes!

    Rejailbreak the iphone and do NOT choose Activate Phone!

    He restored to stock fw and still can't get service on official sim card. That is his problem.

    My bad!

    Do you have your iphone connected to computer with Itunes open?

    Itunes will have to activate iphone and sim card

    Dude I have the same problem. iPhone 3G it will not activate or unlock and says either searching or no service no matter what sim card is in it. I do not have the original sim that came with the phone (AT&T) but was able to get a sim at the store. I have tried everything. It works fine with my friends sim and just normal activate with iTunes. But will not work when I try to jailbreak and unlock with the sim I got at AT&T. If you find out the solution let me know...
