    This sounds as if you have the new Bootrom that Apple recently introduced to make jailbreaking more difficult.

    It means you whenever your phone is powered off and back on, you have to connect to a PC and run Blackra1n. It's a bit of a pain but it's where things are at the moment with that Bootrom.

    As for the rest, make sure you have the latest version of BlackRa1n, which is rc3, try running the Blackra1n.app on your phone after you put the unofficial SIM in the phone, rather than before.

    If it's T-Mobile USA turn off 3G.
