    Hi everyone

    I'm having a bit of a problem. I have an iPhone2G which I got it from AT&T in 2007. However, soon after I left the states and have not been back. However, since I jailbroke the phone, I was able to use it in my country and never did any OS update.

    Today, for some reasons, I had to update and restore it. Once I updated to the latest OS for iphone 2G, which I think is iOS3.xxx, the phone was locked back to AT&T.

    I can't seem to activate it now as it's only for dialing emergency numbers only. I tried Googling for a solution but the fact that 2G is a dinosaur in tech years, I can't seem to find a solution as I doubt not too may are still using it.

    Can anyone enlighten me as to how to resolve this issue?

    Thanks and very much appreciated.
