    G'day. I just got my iPhone and started unlocking it following this guide. Once I was to the "anySIM" part and it was doing its thing I accidently clicked the button on the mic that is on the headphones while they were connected to the iPhone. It straight away opened up the music section in the iPhone (anySIM had obviously stopped doing its thing). I went back into anySIM and clicked "unlock" again but some weird stuff happened. Now my iPhone has popped u saying "Your iPhone cannot make/receive calls. Go to apple.com/support". What do I do? I have tried restoring it by holding down the buttons the usual way but it doesn't do anything. Please help!!! Thank you.

    Hello,

    I unlocked my iPhone with this guide just the other day. Absolutely amazed at how easy the process was.

    I think the only thing you can try is to do a firmware restore within iTunes and start the process again from the top.

    That really was NOT very clever!

    You should remove anything that will cause any potential problems!

    For technical stuff like that I would head over to the hackint0sh forum at http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=136

    They can help you - I would guess that you should start with a restore and see if that works and if it doesn't I would recommend ZiPhone (www.ziphone.org) as it can flash your baseband and fix it to an unlocked version.

    The question is really how patient are you? the smart thing to do would be to post the same question on the hackintosh forum but if your not impatient I am pretty damned sure ZiPhone will fix this problem but I will not be held responsible if it doesnt!

    In general that message is super bad news - it means Apple has to fix the phone and being unlocked (and in Austrailia) that will never happen! so lets hope ZiPhone fixes it for you!

    I would suggest you restore to 1.1.3 then run ZiPhone which will then flash your baseband back to the 1.1.2 version which should work again although if you upgrade to 1.1.3 and its working again then great - ZiPhone can also jailbreak and activate your phone so don't worry about updating it!
