Hi All,


I updated to IOS 6.1.2 which has been a total diaster. I am regulary losing signal, baterry life and more importantly the service from my provider - 'Searching' keeps appearing.


I have reset my phone via itunes four times over the last three days. Now I have unable to activate my phone. Any ideas how to solve this problem?


Many thanks,



iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2

    Generally this is a sign that the iPhone had previously been

    hacked/modified/jailbroken and the update relocked it to the

    original wireless carrier. If this is the case, only that wireless

    carrier can unlock your iPhone. You must contact them to see

    if they offer unlocking and if you qualify.


    Where did you acquire this iPhone?

    What wireless carrier did you use before this problem?


    Does the app Cydia appear on your iPhone?

    What does it say when you look at Settings=>General=>About=>Carrier?
