    Exclamation there is no sim card installed in the iphone you are attempting to activate

    I just got this iPhone from a friend and it's already jailbroken and while my iPhone was plugged in iTunes I stupidly updated the firmware to 4.0.x forgetting that I could only use the phone because it is jailbroken, now when I open the phone, the iTunes logo comes out saying the "No SIM card installed" and "Insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate iPhone." When I searched the net I bumped into this solution. http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=10188

    But when I plugged the iPhone to my laptop to use the hack, the message "there is no sim card installed in the iphone you are attempting to activate" shows up in my iTunes so I can't even use the hack. Please help me on how to solve this problem, thanks!

    Do you have a SIM card in the phone at all? Before you accidentally upgraded could you use the phone or 3g data functions?

    (I really hope the accident did not happen in the last week, because if it did you went to 4.1 which can't be unlocked)

    No sim card is inserted before the upgrade but I could use the functions of the phone.

    In the last week? Does yesterday count?

    iOS 4.0 was released on the 8th of this month. That is 6 days ago.

    Any upgrade or restore (where you did not manually choose a specific IPSW to use) in the past 6 days has restored iOS 4.1 which cannot be unlocked or jailbroken.
