completely newbie needs help!!!!!!
My head is officially wrecked with my locked iphone! I bought it when it was first released in the US in 07 or 08. It was on At&t network but i bought it unlocked. It worked fantastic for the last few years however last week i accidently updated it via itunes Needless to say it is completely locked again and when i put a sim card into it it still doesn't work. it will only start up and allow emergency calls.
I googled the problem and have spent a small fortune buying jailbreaking and unlocking software. I've lost count of the number of times i have tried doing the prodeedure but the phone is still locked
Im at my wits end and have arranged to drop it to a phone repair shop on Friday where i will be charged €40 for the guy to fix it. Can someone pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee talk me through what im doing wrong?

If you updated your iPhone last week, then you're probably running 3.1.3, but you definitely need to verify that. If you are, please see the very first sticky thread on this forum: so far, to date, 3.1.3 cannot be jailbroken, and I'm betting that it therefore cannot be unlocked.
Hopefully someone else can correct me & give you better news, but that's my take. You could be S.O.L., sorry to say mate.

Well, here's the deal. He said he bought it in '07 or '08. If it was '07, then it's the iPhone 2G. If it was in '08, then it's the iPhone 3G.
Now, I MAY be mistaken, but isn't it possible to downgrade the iPhone 3G's baseband via fuzzyband, so that it can then be unlocked?
