    Bingo. Can't be done connected to the computer. You must use a USB hub.

    Recovery mode and hard reset may help:

    Hard Reset:
    1) Power iPhone on.
    2) Hold the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons for about 7 seconds, or until the screen turns black.
    3) Your iPhone should reboot. If it doesn't don't worry, just hold the Sleep/Wake button for about 2 seconds.

    Recovery Mode:
    1) Turn iPhone off by holding down the Sleep/Wake Button for about 5 seconds or until the Slide to Power Off slider appears.
    2) Slide Power Off slider. If iPhone is unresponsive, follow the Hard Reset instructions up to Step 3.
    3) Open iTunes on your computer (Mac or PC).
    4) Hold the Home Button down while you connect your iPhone to your computer via a USB cable.
    5) iTunes should prompt you with a message saying an iPhone has been detected in Recovery Mode and that you must Restore it to before it can be used with iTunes.
    6) Click Ok.
    7) Click Restore a message should appear confirming that you want to Restore and Update.
    8) Click Restore and Update. The restore has been initiated. Leave your iPhone connected until you iPhone reboots and syncs with iTunes.

    Ok sorry if I am being a bit dumb here
    So my mates iPhone now is up and running but I am unable to unlock due to the modem firmware getting upgraded
    But his wife also has a 3g on an official iPhone 02 contract. Would I be able to put her sim in the upgraded modem firmware and then use her iPhone with the 2.28 firmware for my mate to unlock
    Hope this makes sense
    A big thanks to everyones help on this one
    Rob
