Yesterday my phone crash and got stuck at the Apple logo so i restored it , i had it jailbroken and unlock and run on tmobile so after the restore everything went fine but then iTunes said my sim card is not a valid sim card and it locked me outta my phone so my question is can i just continue and rejailbreak it on 4.2.1 and it will unlock or am i screwed

You have updated your baseband...no way back... no unlock...You can roll back firmware if your shsh blobs are saved

If you restored to a standard 4.2.1 ipsw, you now have a baseband that is non-unlockable, but there is still at least one method for unlocking it.

1. Is it a 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4?
2. Did you restore to a custom 4.2.1 firmware with a preserved baseband or did you use a firmware that was downloaded in iTunes?
3. If it's a 3GS or iPhone 4 and you restored to 4.3.5 (didn't do a shift+restore), do you have a 4.3.3 or lower SHSH backed up in Cydia?
