    HI All Im new to here and also a iphone novice.

    HI All I need urgent help in order to sort my iphone out.

    I recently got a latest iphone 3gs 32gb 3.1.2

    I managed to jailbreak it with blackra1n everything was working fine however last night my O2 signal went off and i cant make calls or send texts when i do it fails instantly.

    I have restored my iphone back to basic setting however its still the same NO signal although it say O2 UK theres no signal what so ever on the iphone please help!!!!

    Any suggestions Im a novice at this so please help.

    I also treid black sn0w but but nothing happened

    O2 had no answer also my sim works fine in my old SE phone and I have tried another O2 chip in my iphone and still no signal even though it says O2 UK on my screen

    Did you try restoring fresh? Not restoring from a backup?

    I think so

    HOw do I retore from fresh without doing it from back up? I just plug to itunes then restore. then after backup?

    I also get the message waiting for activations " this may take some time but nothing?

    HI EN0C I have currently went into settings on the general tab in the iphone and clicked "Erase All Content and Settings."
    then its connected to itunes

    Then I selected restore to set it up from new again?

    after The restore as new phone I still have no signal although it shows O" UK next to it also I still get the meassage

    Waiting for activation This may take a while?

    NO service - Awaiting activation looks like a fault in some iphones?

    you'll likely be unjailbreaking if you haven't already to get support

    i personally would try it again and if it screws up restore it and tell them it did it again and get a 3rd phone then leave that one alone.
