iPhone 2.2.1 jailbreak failure or unapproved PAYG sim?
So today I stepped up and bought a used iPhone 3g 16G (model A1241). I bought it for use with my already activated at&t "pick your plan" SIM - which I read works with the iPhone here:
Before selling me the iPhone, the guy did a restore on it (today 2/11/09), which I'm assuming means that it was upgraded to 2.2.1?
I tried to follow the steps on this post:
I was able to get it flashed to 2.2 succesfully if I unchecked the "Activate the phone" checkbox in PwnageTool. But when I start my phone I still get the dreaded "emergency only" calling screen. When I click the "Activate the phone" checkbox and try to flash it.. I get an error.
I'm using an at&t "pick your plan" sim card. I have read numerous reports that these sim cards work with the new iphone 3g's "out of the box". So what is going on here? Is at&t not accepting my sim card because its "pick your plan" ? And I'm unable to unlock it because the guy I bought it from upgraded to 2.2.1? If I call at&t will they be able to activate my iPhone with my PAYG sim?
Please help, your comments and suggestions are very appreciated.
