    I am afraid that you are out of luck. You should not have upgraded the firmware on a hack unlocked phone. You cannot use the device until someone figures out how to jailbreak 1.1.3 and even then since you just upgraded from 1.1.1 you might never be able to use the phone part of the iPhone again.

    Do you do your homework FIRST?

    ver 1.1.3 was JUST released. Why on earth would you update your unlocked 1.1.1 to 1.1.3?? That was a DUMB move! No wonder! :eek:

    You're stuck now... playing the waiting game!

    Hmm. I must have missed the press releases announcing that:

    1. An apple store has opened in Iran
    2. AT&T started service in Iran
    3. Apple is selling the iPhone in Iran.

    To the above two posters:
    First poster - could you not have kept that to yourself - why antagonise somebody looking for help.
    Second poster - see above. What has his location got anything to do with it? Got a problem with Iran? I can't think of any other reason to post that.

    Wow, dacreativeguy, thanks for that insightful comment. I'm sure it was really helpful to the OP.

    Next time, just keep your BS to yourself.

    Wouldn't restore phone in ITUNES send it back to 1.1.1 and then jail break from there? Have fun in the sun in tehran!

    Well my friend, sorry to tell you but since 1.1.3 is *very* new the iPhone Dev Team have not yet been able to jailbreak it (not even having the ipsw before hand).

    As far as for downgrading, Ericka Sadun from the TUAW tried various methods Nate True (creator of iBrickr and first user outside Apple to have access to 1.1.3) suggested and still, there was no way of succesfully downgrading Baseband and Firmware. Only the main firmware downgraded but since the Baseband is still up the phone part will not work.

    Now to your problems we add the fact that 1.1.3 has no 'unlocking' as of yet. There is a Hardware Unlock done by GeoHot, but that is very complicated and requires you to open up your iPhone and also use software manipulation.

    So as for solutions to your problem I only offer one. Wait until there is any way to jailbreak a 1.1.3

    No problem with Iran at all. There are stupid people all over the world, so location matters not. If you are going to use a product in a way that the manufacturer prohibits, and that that they publicly announce they are taking action to prevent, then you have to know what you are doing before you do it. But don't whine and beg for help when you do something that it is unsupported and it blows up in your face. That's the mark of someone who never should have attempted hacking or jailbreaking in the first place.

    There are few things that you need to do in order to downgrade your phone.

    once your have downgraded both your firmware and bootloader than you can upgrade your phone to 1.1.3 the proper way. YES YOU CAN GO TO 1.1.3 with out getting your iphone bricked.

    At the moment i am using the latest 1.1.3 version with out any problems.

    Contact me if your iphone is still bricked.

    Why not jailbreak and TurboSIM? That would probably work.

    Apple is involved.
    He upgraded his phone to a version that locks his phone.
    I wonder how much phones apple would sell I they sold it fully unlocked.

    I hope that he was able to unlock it.:)

    I also hope that Bush doesn't think that the iPhone is a WMD, because he's looking for any excuse to invade that country. :eek:

    How shocking, a post from a guy in Iran which turns to a discussion about bush and WsMD. [insert rolling eyes]


    You can now jailbreak 1.1.3 and unlock it from there.

    Good luck!

    Such a great board.. thanks

    To both posters, dacreativeguy & mouchoir, why do you make such replies, if you are both not having a clue on how to fix problems and help someone who is in need, then both of you should not say such thing. For your info, one day APPLE will open in IRAN as it is a huge market regardless of the US government issue with them.

    Such a great board, I do not understand why the Admins and OPs would allow such comments in such a place where others can seek help.

    Good luck to the person who is seeking help in fixing his problem.

    I think you are out of luck my friend. Apple stated that any unlocked Iphone which was upgraded would stop working. I think your phone is now dead.

    He's asking for help. He didn't come here to be berated. Not everyone is a genius and a member of Mensa like you.

    Go to http://www.hackthatphone.com/ If there is a solution to your problem, you would find it on that website.

    Despite some potential misinformation in this thread, your phone should be quite recoverable (as you were unlocked on 1.1.1, you must be BL3.9).

    Here's the simplest way - http://iphone.unlock.no/#how-to-downgrade-1.1.2-or-1.1.3

    (NB I have not done this so can't verify it works)

    Alternatively, you could go through an involved process (at least at the moment, it may get simpler in the future) to restore back to 1.1.1, jailbreak, oktoprep, option-update to 1.1.2, jailbreak again and soft-update to 1.1.3. Then you will be on a locked but jailbroken 1.1.3 (with matching baseband), ready to run the newly released AnySIM 1.3 or geohots IPSF-clone. Both of these are brand new though, so I'd recommend waiting for a bit longer until any bugs are worked out.
