    Some more details please,

    What firmware are you running? Is it a new iPhone? Have you just started having this problem?

    Well, you can "unactivate" the phone by doing a restore through DFU mode, and starting again as if it was a new phone. That would solve this problem I guess.

    How to do DFU mode:

    (Mind you, if you're on a Macbook on 10.5.6 you should probably ignore this advice since DFU mode won't work)

    It is 2.2.1. unloked

    when I bought it I was told to activate it, Then it did not have any carrier. So I did restore. Then this issue with itunes started.

    I have done this step earlier. but it did not work.

    In case I fail is their any other alternative to itunes that I can use.

    Did you try:
    (1) Rebooting your computer
    (2) Uninstall and reinstall iTunes (make sure to get the latest release)
