problem unlocking iPhone so that i can use my old SIM

Jun 30, 2007
hey guys,

ok, so i've been following the easy instructions on how to use old SIM in my iPhone:

everything is ok until i get to Step 15, i've attached a picture of what i get

and here's the text

Looking for iPhone...
Sending Files...

*** If iTunes is running, please close it.
*** Hold the POWER and HOME buttons for approximately 25s.
*** Release when the display says 'Please Connect to iTunes'.

Sending More Files...
Booting iPhone...

Waiting for iPhone to finish booting...
Moving files into place...

Sorry, apparently things just didn't work out.
Look on the bright side, if jail was that good for Paris maybe you should give it a second chance. ;)

i don't understand what i'm doing wrong

i have a 4GB iPhone that has been activated already to use pre-paid, if that matters at all

any help would be greatly appreciated
