I believe you will have to go to a vendor to get a sim card for the phone to work. If you are in the US, then it will have to be ATT or Verizon( if you have one of their phones).If you are not in the US, most phone company sims will work unless you have a Verizon phone.With a valid sim in palce, connect to a computer and run iTunes. There should be an option to restore or at least download and install software.An alternative might be to take it to an Apple Store.Lewis

Can you not restore? iPhone User Guide (For iOS 4.2 and 4.3 Software)

I do not believe anyone understands what you are trying to communicate here.Is your device not activated?Are you able to unlock? If you did not backup the device prior to restoring, all data is lost.

    Is your device not activated?

    Are you able to unlock?

    Hi Lewis,

     

    thanks for your reply. I dont know if the device is unlocked or not. I tired to unlock it but mistakenly i did not backup my current contents. SO, every thing is gone. Now i have only got a emergency call screen from where i can make emergency calls only. There is nothing in the phone any more. I dont know what to do. I just got it last week. I live in UK and i got it from 3 network. I going to three to solve the problem. If you can help me in anyway plz let me know. Thanks

    I think you just need a sim card from your provider.

    Good luck.
