    Unhappy Get reception, yet unable to make a call with t-mobile UK

    The best way to confirm this is to restore via DFU mode to OS 3.1.2 and then jailbreak using redsn0w

    Do not use OS 3.1.3
    I have had exactly the same problem as this apart from my 1st gen iphone recognises my t-mobile sim an shows that there are bars of reception, it just wont ring out, recieve calls or send messages?? I am really new to this, i have followed all of the instructions above, updated it to 3.1.2 and am using redsn0w 0.9.4..
    Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be??
    Thanks

    Redsn0w 0.9.4 is not the right version - but it should work

    Redsn0w 0.9.2 is actually the latest stable version, 0.9.3 adds tethering patch (experimental) and 0.9.4 is only for some 2nd gen iPod touches.

    Saying that, I am not sure what your problem is. Try the SIM in another phone - try a SIM you know that it works.

    I have tried the sim in my other LG phone and it works perfectly. I have also tried another (virgin) sim in the iphone but the same problem occurs, says virgin in top corner, shows bars but again wont let me call out, recieve calls or send/recieve texts.. I'm baffled!! Do you know where i can get Redsn0w 0.9.2 from as the link below has expired now and i cannot find it

    It is T Mobile in the uk, does that make a difference?

    yes.. your iPhone is IMEI blacklisted. The behaviour you see is 100% typical for t-mobile in the UK when the phone is blacklisted.

    Vodafone & T-Mobile
    If you place an active Vodafone or T-Mobile SIM into a blacklisted handset, the phone will appear to function perfectly UNTIL you try to make an outgoing call. When you try to call out from the handset you will hear a sequence of beeps and then the call will be dropped!!
    As it is illegal to even own tools to change IMEI in the UK. Please don't ask for help with this on this forum.

    your only semi-legit option is to try and swap your locked phone with someone outside the EU. This phone will be blacklisted anywhere within the EU.
