    Unhappy 3GS Carrier Identifcation Issue

    I have a 3GS 32GB on 4.1 with baseband 06.15 & model MB718LL. Everything I read says this is originally a US based phone locked to ATT. From a clean restore to 4.1, I tried to activate with a friends active ATT sim from his iphone & got the message in itunes that the SIM card was not valid. I then tried the redsnow/ultrasnow/SAM method following all instructions to the T & used US based ATT as my bundle & received the same message. If I can't activate with an actual ATT SIM card in itunes from a clean 4.1, then my assumption is the phone must be locked to a different carrier. Can anyone point me in the right direction for finding out what carrier it is?

    Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give!

    Chris

    Normally this means AT&T - I've never seen LL used for any other region that the USA.

    Try with a deactivated AT&T sim card, preferably one that came from an old iPhone.
