    Default Is my Iphone 32GB 3GS Completely useless now?

    Is my Iphone 32GB 3GS Completely useless now?

    My phone got stuck yesterday, it was jailbreaked 3.0 and unlocked. So i did a restore through iTunes and it restored it to 3.1

    Now my phone is locked, meaning i cant use my SIM and also it cant be jailbreaked.

    Is my phone completely useless now or is there something i can do?

    Atleast is there anyway to make it unlocked so i can use it as a phone?

    Thanks.

    Next time do a search before you post, this is a common question.

    Yes you are stuck with a very useless iPhone.

    There is no jailbreak and no unlock for 3.1 yet. The chances are high that a jailbreak will be released soon. However the chances are very that an unlock will ever be made for 3.1

    If you absolutely need an unlocked phone, you might consider selling your 3GS and buying a new one that's still on 3.0.x.

    For the future, use Pwnage to make a custom 3.1 ipsw for your 3GS and then, if you get stuck and have to restore, you can restore to the custom ipsw and be pwned on 3.1, preserving your baseband. You don't have to use it right away if you want to stay on 3.0.x It's a good insurance policy if you are forced to upgrade for some reason.

    Your iphone is not useless. There must be a way to unlock it. Search for some pin numbers provided by your network provider. If it still does not work then please submit your iphone to any apple service centre.
