    Default Locked iPhone after 3.1 upgrade

    HELP!
    I bought an unlocked iphone 3GS
    I was told this was a factory unlock.
    I upgraded the firmware to 3.1 through Itunes.
    Now the phone is locked. (i.e. the screen which asks you to connect to PC and load itunes)

    Itunes says that I need to install a SIM from a registered carrier.

    If I now put in an 02 SIM (I am in the UK) will the phone work? or Have I locked the phone permanently?

    I am trying to sell the phone and could do with knowing what damage I have done????

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Unlocked phones still need to be activated so until you put the SIM in and connect it to iTunes you can't be sure.

    But if it is NOT factory unlocked then it will only work with a SIM from the network in the country the iPhone is on... and there is no other solution now! so lets hope your lucky!
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)
