iPhone 3GS (activate the phone - only emergency calls)
I just bought iPhone 3GS which was unlocked.
It's camera was frozen and I read online and connected to the iTunes and restored the phone - probably did wrong.
Now, it's in the mode where it shows the picture where I need to connect the iPhone to the iTunes and it gives me only emergency call options.
The phone is 3GS 16GB, I don't know about the firmware.
When it is connected to the iTunes, it only says: "The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported"
I have a T-Mobile sim card, not AT&T.
My laptop is a MacBook version 10.4.11
How could I activate this phone so I could start using it?
Thanks for help!

It sounds like you restored it to the latest firmware, 4.1 which can't be unlocked at this time.
All you can do is wait until an unlock comes soon which will be after the jailbreak.

Thanks a lot for the help!
But how could I get the phone out of the mode: when it is connected to the iTunes, it only says: "The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported"
So, I could get it to work (not calling or texting) and maybe can listen music for so long
