i got my iphone 3 off a friend, it had been unlocked and i was able to put my sim in and use immediately, recently it had been becoming slow and deleting contacts and then it began flashing the apple icon. For 2 days it did this so i took a friends advice and restored the phone, i plugged into itunes and folowed instructions and in the activation process i get a message both on screen and on phone saying cannot connect to server, please try again later and this is as far as i can go, any ideas as to what i do next or anyone know why tis is happening?

iPhone 3GS

    That's because your phone was not legitimately unlocked.  It was hacked to unlock it.


    You will have to contact the carrier it is locked to and find out if it can be unlocked. ONLY the carrier it is locked to can authorize unlocking it.
