I dl'd blackrain, worked for a while, for no reason started a reboot process with the apple, i went into restore mode, plugged into comp, said sim not supported, went to at&t changed sim cards, still didnt work, came home looked online for fixes, downloaded 3.0, restore with 3.0, downloaded red snow, it said it downloaded everything, but still no home screen, just emergency only. i redownloaded black rain, and started it, unplugged phone, shift restore v3.0, error message, still nothing... i have tried and tried, and will keep trying. i already bought a new phone but i still want to get this back to normal so i can use it as a backup.

    Hey guys... My girlfriend has an iphone... She had old firmware so she asked me "to do something with it" So I did.. and updated it. Guess what happened - iPhone realized that it has wrong sim inside... She bought it in Canada and now she's using it here in Czech Republic. Now, it doesn't work at all.. It's on emergency mode and I can't do a thing about it. I tried, redsn0w = nothing.. I tried blackra1n = nothing... I tried to restore it.. I tried basically everything.. Everytime I end up in "The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported." Can somebody give an advice? If I couldn't make the sim work, at least I would like its iPod make to work... Appreciate every advice!

    Hi, I've got exactly the same problem as Proditor (also tried to help my gf - same result).
    She got her iphone from her mother in Russia and is now trying to use it in the UK with t-mobile. It worked fine with the sim card before the update but now it wont even start properly.

    It's a 2G iphone.

    Many thanks for any help.

    I have an iPhone 1G, the very first iPhone to be released. It's unlocked. I didn't unlocked it. I payed someone to unlock it.
    Yeah, so, my brother wants to play apps there but, it's 1G so, it doesn't support apps. I never did any update to it.

    And just this morning, I downloaded the 3.1.3 update and then it says, it doesn't support my sim. Then I googled about it and I found this thread.
    I restored it already but it still doesn't recognized my sim.
    I found a page that says you can unlock and jailbreak an iPhone at the same time but it has to be 2.2.1.
    Can anyone help me with this?
    Thank you very much. : )
