Hello,
I am trying to unlock my iphone 2g to work with Corr Wireless (southeast US carrier). I have used the guide here (iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your iPhone 2G on OS 3.1.3 Using PwnageTool (Mac) (Comments) to jailbreak/unlock my phone. I am using the 4.6 boot-loader. My phone is model MA712LL, and has a modem firmware of 04.05.04_G. After going through the initial reboot and having boot-neuter set up it restarts again and loads into the ios. It shows a message that says "NO SIM card installed". I have five different sims here, the corr wireless one i'm wanting to use, one from cingular, one from AT&T, one from NEXTEL from about 2002, and one from etisalat in the UAE. I have tried all of these sims and I keep getting the no sim error. I was hoping someone here could help me out and help me overcome this error.

Thank You,

Han

I have also followed this guide http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=7436, (had to use 3.1.2 restore because Redsn0w wouldn't verify the 3.1.3 IPSW. Installed bootneuter and let it load up its current settings which were 4.6, Neuter, and Unlock. I hot my home button and it says no service for a bit then no sim installed. I have tried this with 4 different sim cards. These cards aren't active cards ,but shouldn't it recognize that there is a sim installed regardless? Should I change something?

Personally, I think it is a hardware failure where your Iphone can't detect the sim when it in there.

So, I think you need to fix this first before you can get any kind of signal from sim.
