Okay....I bought a bricked iphone 3gs 16gig and I have managed to restore it to ios 4.1 with 6.15 baseband. I have unlocked and installed ultrasnow to unlock. The phone is showing the carrier when the sim is installed (Vodaphone uk) but whatever I do I cant seem to get any service. Have tried sim in/out and Airoplane mode off/on but still no joy. Have also tried Orange sim and still the same. Anyone have a solution for this please?

So much for making a few extra quid! To be perfectly honest all carriers should blacklist phones once stolen/bricked/ etc. I'd hate to find my phone has been reused somewhere else because someone knows ways around it!
