    Hi guys,

    I bought an iphone 3gs today for 100 bucks, it only had a small crack in the screen so it seemed like a really good deal.

    "seemed" being the key word.

    When i pop in my AT&T sim card, it shows a bar or two for a second, and then goes to "searching" and never finds any service.

    I figured a restore would solve the problem, but it's still doing it and now the phone can't be activated either. It was jail broken when I got it but now it's been restored to factory settings and I have an ATT iphone sim.

    Is it for sure a hardware issue? anything I can fix myself? thanks.

    well it's working now... i just forgot to click the last step in iTunes to "set up as new phone", so the restore did work. I feel completely retarded for asking this question now... lol thanks for the help though.
