Sounds like there was a glitch. Go back and do a 'restore' and then use something simple like Quickpwn for 2.2 Just make sure you are using the correct version. Try hackintosh.org/forum for more specific instructions.

After you QuickPwn your iPhone the first time you sync/connect back to iTunes it will ask you if you'd like to set it up as a new phone/or from backup. . .
-Hopefully youve backed up your phone cause thats the option you need click

That won't help with the no service issue though. Did you have an option to activate the iPhone? If so did you check it? If you did you need to restore and then rejailbreak and ensure that you DO NOT have that option checked. You could try reseting network settings and see if that helps. Try doing a hard reset and also turn on airplane mode off and on and see what happens. What did you use to jailbreak?

what did you do if you don't mind answering? Its always a nice thing for people to say the solution so others that have the problem can search and actually find answers.

i restored it and it didn't have service then either, then i restored it a second time with the pwn restore and it regained service. then jailbroke it and it had service but no contacts, so i restored it a third time after i jailbroke it and had everything.

When you connect your iPhone to iTunes, how do you do a full back up of your iPhone? Is there an option or does it automatically do it for you when you hook it up?

to do a back up i think it is an option, to do a restore you do it yourself. maybe someone else can chime in and help out

My only concern after reading this thread is that I never did a "backup" before I JB my iPhone. I don't want to lose all my information if something was to happen so can you still do a back up once your phone had been JB? If so how do you do it?

i don't have an answer to that. i don't know how to back it up after jb or even before. i just know when i did a restore it had all my contacts and everything back in the phone.
