    Hello everyone, I'm new to this so please bear with me

    I bought my iphone from a store in Hong Kong and it was unlocked, had cydia jailbreak and stuff.

    I just updated my Iphone through Itunes to version 2.2.1 i believe and now when i turn on my phone i can only "slide for emergency"

    and when i plug my phone to my computer, Itunes says that

    "The Sim Card inserted in this Iphone does not appear to be supported"

    is my iphone dead?

    Additional information: the card i am using right now is actually a card for an Iphone in Hong Kong because i previously subscribed for one. However due to some unfortunate reasons that phone died

    Any help appreciated

    You need to check your baseband in the Settings. If it is upgraded to 2.30.00, then you will need an official carrier SIM card to use the phone.
