working anySim 1.1 unlocked iPhone screwed by Syncing
I went to the ATT store today and bought a brand new iPhone.
it has firware version (yes its spelled firware) 04.01.13_G which afaik is FW 1.1.1
The home screen showed the world, not the disc and cable
Using the instructions here, http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=14384
I did the jailbreak and Activation and Unlocked the iPhone with anySim 1.1
After that I was able to use the phone to make calls on Tmobile.
I then connected to itunes and did a restore from backup. This put all my phone numbers back in the phonebook, and I could still make telephone calls.
NOW comes the BAD news!
I synced the phone, which put back all my music and photos.
After that I lost ability to make phone calls, the Tmobile sim is not detected.. I have no reception bars, and no Tmobile logo on top left of springboard screen.
So now, my BRAND new iPhone is an iPod with wifi.
Any suggestions how to fix it?
what I tried so far.. relocked with oneSim, then reunlocked with anySim 1.1.. still no phone service..
now for some history.
I had a 1.0.2 phone, that was unlocked with anySim 1.0... so I virginized, then updated to 1.1.1, then unlocked with anySim 1.1
everything worked, I was able to use Tmobile
then I did a restore from backup and got all my phone numbers back. I was able to make calls.
then I did a Sync, and lost the use of my telphone service.. same as happened with the brand new phone above.
but on the old iPhone, I went ahead and tried to restore FW 1.1.1
this did not work. I got error 1011 and was stuck in recovery mode, and itunes detected a phone in need of restoring. And on the screen there was not the gold triangle but rather the disc and cable
so I decided to upgrade to FW 1.1.2.. that worked.. it was recognized by iTunes as a phone ready to connect to ATT activation.. but I dont want ATT..
So I downgraded the FW to 1.1.1 again, this time I got error 1015 and was and still am stuck in recovery mode..
so I went to the store and got a spare phone, as described at the beginning of this post, hoping I could fix the old one and return the new one within 14 days, while still not being without an iphone..
now I have 2 iphones that dont work.
my basic warning to others is
if you Unlock with anySim 1.1 on FW 1.1.1 and then Sync, you end up with an iPod with wifi..
Does anybody have a fix for this?
Not true. When i was on 1.1.1 i synced countless times and nothing happened to my phone.

Im not lying, I have 2 phones to prove it
I realize my situation is not normal, and that you were not hit by my problem.. but
what I really would appreciate, is some helpful suggestions on how to solve my problem.. got any ideas please?
syncing with itunes as we speak...oh phone still works.
8 GB iPhone 1.1.4 unlocked T-mobile USA.
> phone still works
thats great! I want to be like you.
can you help me get my phone to work?
after I synced, and this has happened on 2 separate phones, I dont know why, I lost the phone service..
syncing works to load my calendar, phone numbers, photos, music, and I can use wifi, but not edge, and I dont have my carrier name (Tmobile) displayed anymore..
what is the fix when everything except the phone works...? (whatever causes it, syncing or poltergeists.. I dont know)
thanks for any suggestions on how to solve my phone problem
I will try reloading iTunes, Im using 7.4.2 on a PPC Mac...
Went to settings/general/reset/reset all settings
I suspect the problem was caused by the restore from backup of prior iPhones, though the trigger after that step was to sync
So iPhone number 2, bought yesterday, now works
The first phone is still stuck in recovery mode at 1.1.1
If I upgrade to 1.1.2 the first phone shows up in iTunes as willing to establish ATT service
Anybody want to buy it?:-)
