  3. Hi.. I bought my iphone 3gs last year from ebay.. I was told it wasn’t jailbroken (which of course was not true). I used it in South Africa, it worked fine. Took it back to India, it worked fine with an Airtel sim.. I think i might have updated the software in india(i really dont remember)..

    But then once back to SA, it did now work on a S African sim, it just goes to a weird mode, can see a connecting chord and itunes symbol and emergency calling mode (basically network locked)..
    I tried to restore the initial software using itunes(BIIGGG mistake). Now it does not recognize any network or sim, back to the weird mode..

    PLEASE HELP!!! I am not understanding the technicality of this damn phone!!!!
