Jailbroken iphone - PUSH / ACTIVATION problem
i used the advice many others gave me previously and have done exactly as you guys said to get PUSH notifications to work on a jailbroken 3g. with 3.1.2,
1) Create and ipsw with "activate" NOT checked.
2) Use the original carrier sim to activate the phone - THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART ***
*** You see i live in Pakistan. I do not know for sure which carrier my 3g was locked to as i bought the phone from an electronics dealer here, who buy phones from all over the world and resell them here. (thats how they do over here).. anyways. I spoke to the guy who i bought the phone from and he said the original carrier was probably AT&T. He had a bunch of AT&T sims so he gave me one. to try it out with. Apart from this i have 2 FIDO sims, one which came with the OTB 3.1 / 5.11 3gs i just got :(( and the other was another FIDO sim (active) which my friend was using in Canada, and is on roaming at the moment... to summarize
1st SIM - AT&T
2nd SIM - FIDO - Came with 3gs- inactive
3rd SIM - FIDO - Friends Sim - Active - in use but NOT on an iphone
I have repeated the following steps over 6 - 8 times now..
So, i prepared the ipsw with the "active" not checked, restored it... now for the activation part i tried
SIM#1 - AT&T - in the phone when trying to activate.. did not work.. - itunes says that this is not the right carrier -
Tried SIM#2 - FIDO - same result as SiM#1 -
Then finally tried - SIM#3 - Voila - i get the message waiting for activation, and in a bit phone activated, and the itunes window now shows my phone with my frends number and the serial number etc etc..
So this means thats the phone was originally locked to FIDO as the official carrier????
Ok, so i then proceeded to Cydia, installed the ultrasn0w, and rebooted the phone...
This is where it gets complicated....
When i rebooted the phones, i changed SIMS. and put in the SIM of my local carrier. The second i insert that SIM (or any other SIM), the itunes logo comes on the phone screen and says SIm card changed and to replace original SIM. Itunes also gives me the same message that this is not the original carrier sim.
This is weird cause the phone is "unlocked/ultrasn0wed" at this point.
Additionally, if i wait a while with my local sim still in the phone, it will eventually catch my local network as well!, but i just cant get into the phone home screen because when i swipe it goes to the emergency call screen… This means that ultrasn0w is working as well right??
When i replace with the FIDO sim, everything is back to normal….
Please PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE someone, anyone help me… i have been at this for the last 3 days / nights… i cant get over why this is not working…
I have even restored to 3.0. used ultraslow to jailbreak then pwned with 3.1.4 but the same result the minute i insert my local sim or any other sim.
I have looked into the other push fixes, but they all say they have issues and are not working correctly.
