    Hi all,

    I need help. My 3G iphone, running 2.1 firmware, used to be working with rebelsim card on T-mobile. But earlier today, I decided to try unlocking the phone using pwangetool but it did not work out. At the end, it showed the "slide for emergency" and the USB, itunes on the screen (picture attached).
    So, I restored with 2.1 to undo the unlocking. However, I get the exactly same screen as before.

    My question is that screen showing that I need to activate the phone? If not, what is it? If yes, how do I activate the phone without AT&T simcard?
    What can I do to make it work back to normal?

    Thanks guys!
    PS: On that screen, I have full-bars on T-mobile.

    You can 'hacktivate' (activating without a legit SIM card) with PwnageTool. I'm not sure why you were trying to unlock your phone with Pwnage though, the only software unlock for the 3G is yellowsn0w, Pwnage can only unlock the 2G.
