My boyfriend unlocked his iPhone for me in Hong Kong and gave it to me to use in the UK, the UK simcard was working fine in the phone on roaming, but as soon as I get back to the UK, it display 'no service' and can't make any calls or anything! it says 'your cellular network is restricted. you can choose a different network in settings' but I can't connect to anything.. so frustrating.. please help!

p.s. I haven't upgraded iTunes or done anything to the phone in the intervening space..

Hi
I have a similar problem, my iPhone 3G is from Italy where it is factor unlocked.
All I get is "no service" in the UK. If I put my Malaysian SIM into the phone 5 BARS! When I was on holiday in Malaysia using a local SIM I had no problem. Only when I get back to the UK - Nothing! It should work but it doesn't.

I have restored the phone and iTunes says the phone is unlocked, but still "no service".

Any ideas anyone ?
