    Default I'm all out of luck. Please help.

    Alright guys, I've been reading various forums (including this one) and have been messing with my iPhone for about 3.5 hours now and I am totally out of luck. Yes, I've used the search function and I've gotten nowhere with any of the solutions and I am not the most tech-savy person in the world so I apologize for everything!

    I'm going to try to explain what happened the best I can. A little bit of info first:

    My girlfriend gave me her 3g iPhone (she had ATT) a few months ago. I unlocked/Jailbroke the phone to work with tmobile with Blackra1n by geohot with my macbook. Everything was perfect until yesterday.

    My phone completely died, so I tried charging it. The phone has died before, but this time, it didn't charge and was stuck on the silver apple icon screen. I was suggested to restore, so I put the phone in recovery mode, restored to factory settings AND had no choice but to update (restore to back up was not an option, so I opted with complete restore).

    NOW, I am stuck on the Emergency Call Screen with the charger and iTunes icons.

    At first, I was pissed that I was going to lose all my information, but now I am so frustrated that I have a bricked iPhone, that was previously working perfectly fine before. Please help me fix it! Thanks in advance!

    I cannot tell from what you described. The main thing here is what firmware version did you restore to the phone ?.

    I suspected that you restore to factory firmware 3.1.3. If you did, you are out of luck for an unlock (unlock meaning so you can use with a different carrier that is not ATT).

    Did you restore to firmware 3.1.3 ?

    There is still way to activate that phone but there will be no unlock unless you use ATT.
