Help Needed - No Service
Some serious help needed.
My problem is that I bought a second hand iPhone 3GS from my mate. (I don't know if the phone has ever been Jailbroken or Unlocked).
Well I basically updated the phone to iOS 5 and took out my sim card. Now the phone will not recognise the sim card and shows "No Service". I cannot even activate the phone.
Im needing kinda step by step help on how to fix this problem. I searched the internet and tried a few things but nothing has sorted it.
I have jailbroke phones before using instructions so i am pretty computer literate.
I am currently running Windows so i cannot use any Mac based programs.
I am desperate to fix this problem as i am stuck without a phone.
Thanks in advance.

I got same probelm...i just posted somewhere else yesterday ...
I have and a 3gs that had the old 3.1.3 firmware on it, but it froze and by accident it got updated to the latest version ios5. I'm pretty sure it was jailbroken/unocked untethered b4. Now i am having SERIOUS signal problems. Ill get full bars for a min and then keeps searching for signal.
Firmware : 05.16.05
Ios 5 (9A334)
It's pretty much a useless old ipod touch right now. And i really need a working phone for obvious reasons. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty new to all of this, i had a friend jail break/unlock it 2 yrs ago and I never updated it (prob only connected it to a cpu abt 10 times in 2 yrs)
I read up and saw the bet bet is to update firware to the ipad one, which disables gps (but i don't have a data plan and really have no use for it)

When you updated you lost your unlock ..
And basband was updated to one that can not be unlocked yet
I have never tried but you might able to do a tethered JB with redsnow and then update the bb to 6.15.00 ( lose gps) then use ultra snow in Cydia
Tethered JB means anytime u need to restart phone I need a computer to help boot it
Since u can't activate I would use snowbreeze to make a custom Ipsw and have it activate for you this will JB also then use redsnow to update the bb
