Installed 3.0 Firmware Emergency Calls Only
After installing the 3.0 Firmware, I can not use my iPhone anymore.
The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not seem to be supported.
Only SIM cards supported can be used to active it.
How can I fix this, please I really need the help.
I am in Colombia using movistar service and I was not aware of this.
Thanks, all help appreciated.

Since you did not sign to any mobile plan from your local telco, please note that whenever you are updating your Apple iPhone to the new iPhone firmware, make sure it is jailbreakable and it's modem firmware is unlockable. You can check it at iPhone Dev team blog.

Well the iPhone was purchased from the USA on eBay. It was unlocked, jailbroken with 2.2 firmware.
I followed the steps to update 3.0 firmware and jailbreak.
Cydia is installed, crashes when clicking search.
Phone has no service - or internet.
What are the steps to get this working ? Thanks !

Restore the phone to 3.0 and set it up as a new phone. Once that's done, jailbreak it again with redsn0w 0.72 preferably, but 0.8 will work too. It just seems that 0.72 works better for the 3G.
During the JB process, you should get the option to hacktivate your phone. This is what you need. Once Hactivated, your iPhone will no longer be stuck at the "Slide for emergency" screen. After updating Cydia, you can install ultrasn0w 0.9 from repo666.ultrasn0w.com
Hope this makes sense, if not, just ask.
