I have an unlocked 3GS phone whuich was originally with "3" then after unlock we used an Amaysim sim which worked perfectly, stopped using phone for 4 months and decided to use a woolworths pre paid sim card (optus), synced phone with itunes and itunes updated the software to ios 6.01, now phone wont recongnise sim, " The SIM card inserted in this phone does not appear to be supported.", i have tried the amaysim (previously worked) and the woolworths sim and both say same.

I have tried to put in very old (non active) 3 sim and it recogines that???? So top me it appears that it has locked it to 3 again, I have not used 3 sim in this phone for along time...

I have tried a restore,  i have set up as new phone and also from back up and I get the same problem, it only recognises an old 3 sim (inactive) opposed 2 Amaysim and Woolworths acticve sims...

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.0.1
