    Hi all team

    Fist of all my respect and appreciation for this wonderfull forum you have established for all iphone users. This is the best iPhone related forum I have registered too until now.

    My Problem is as follows:

    I have received a unlocked iPhone with 1.0.2 Firmware that i gave to my little sister. Everything was working perfectly until my sister pressed the update button in Itunes. So now i am left with a useless iPhone. I cnat get in the phones springboard . When starting the phone i get this message " Incorrect SIM Insert an unlocked and valid sim to activate the iPhone"
    And it lets me do only emergency calls.
    So as you see i am stuck with a locked iphone again.
    And i cant even check the firmware General->Settings->About to chek

    I will not attempt anything until i have good advise from someone that knows this.

    My question is , is it possiblle to unlock and activate this iphone again after it was already unlocked before and locked by accident ?

    Please I would appreciate help and advise on this matter

    awaiting impatiently an answer so i can start working again on thi iphone

    Thank you very much in advance

    Just take your time and follow the directions carefully. What you will be doing is downgrading to 1.0.2 and flashing a previous version of a part of the baseband (I think its the modem part) that will enable you to unlock. It works perfectly. Good luck

    yes u can follow this way

    for me it worked now i have restored firmware 1.0.2 but the problem is now the unlock process with failed with me
    i think its because of the modem version
    i still have the updated one.

    PS:does anyone know a way to downgrade the modem version so i can try unlocking again?
