Hi iPhone Experts,


I just got my iPhone unlocked (factory) and I received the successfully unlocked message also when I restored it to iOS 6.1 in iTunes.

I am using the iPhone 3GS in India.



it works only with AIRTEL Carrier and that too 3G enabled.

For all other carriers,

    a. It detects the phone number (visible in iTunes)

    b. it detects the carrier


but now signal. It goes continuously in "Searching..." or "No Service".


Off and ON with Flight mode didnt help with other carriers.




iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.1, Factory unlocked
