Initially my phone froze so i restarted it by holding down the power and hold buttons until the apple logo appeared. I thought this would solve the problem but now when i power up my phone i get a message telling me that i need to restore from apple.com/support.
When i connect my phone through the USB it gives me the message that the SIM is not inserted or a SIM lock is required, my phone doesn't show under the devices section in iTunes so im completely stuck.
I've downloaded the latest version of iTunes but it still fails to recognise my phone. I tried using a friends SIM and again it didn't register.
I would be grateful for any help as im becoming very frustrated!!

yeah the sim is fine
i tried to restore it using the advice above but after the restore it comes up with the same message:
"iTunes cannot activate your iPhone because the sim card is not inserted or a sim pin is required.
Disconnect the iPhone, make sure the sim card is inserted correctly and if you use a sim pin
tap unlock to enter it and then reconnect your iphone"
