Need some serious help with iphone.
Okay i bought my iphone from my friend and it was already unlocked, it was a 2g, running on the 3.0 software already.
Tonight, itunes popped up saying i could upload 3.1.2 software onto my iphone, so i downloaded it, and now my iphone is saying its an invalid sim card and i can't do anything on my iphone besides slide to make an emergency call.
But the strange thing is, i still have service on my iphone, and it tells me if i get a new phone call or voicemail. But i just can't use it. And itunes says it cannot activiate it until i insert a supported sim card.
Does anybody know how to fix this problem:?

It was unlocked using cydia and winterboard.
And I have tmobile service.
And now I finally found a match of something related to my problem on google, and someone said that i would be unable to fix this problem, and i'll have to get a new phone, is this true?

Yes. Everywhere on the Internet tells people NOT to upgrade their firmwares through iTunes if you want to unlock.
Considering that you're using a hacked phone, maybe in the future you shouldread up on some things just a little bit before going "button-click happy".
In answer to your question - no, you can not unlock your phone if it is officially updated via iTunes. There is absolutely no way.
The reason that you're most likely in emergency mode is because you probably have to activate or hacktivate your phone. As for why you're probably still receiving txts and phone calls, I think it may have to do with the fact that you still had your T-Mobile SIM card in the phone while you upgraded via iTunes. It was never removes, so technically, your service was never interrupted or disconnected, but the GUI for your phone has simply been programmed to not allow you access to the features of your working phone until it detects an AT&T SIM card.
Basically, for now, you're S.O.L.

All I can say to all of these posts is wow, wow, wow....
I see you posted you have an iPhone 2G (original iPhone). Is this the case? If so:
1. Download blackra1n (blackra1n) and jailbreak your phone
2. Install Cydia
3. Install bootneuter
Downgrade your BB and unlock and you're good to go. It's the 3G/3GS that are screwed if they upgrade to 3.1 and need unlock...
