    Sounds like you used anySim or iUnlock tools, if you did you corrupted your NVRAM with these tools, so if you upgraded to 1.1.1 then you got a brick, only way to recover it is to downgrade to 1.02 and downgrade the baseband to 3.14 and rerun one of those unlock tools, which will get the IMEI back to normal. Right now no way to keep the baseband in virgin state and have the correct IMEI once you have used them unlock tools.

    Hehe yeah the only reason why im tripping really bad is cause my girlfreind bought me this iphone. It makes me really angry that Apple can lock your phone and make it useless. Thanks for all the generous help. Ill get my freind MAC computer since I ain't got one , see if that works.
