    I bought an iphone off craigslist with 2.1. I shift click restore to 2.2 and when it finished restoring it went to a "no sim card installed" screen. How can i get to the home screen. The guy didn't give me the original sim card with the iphone. By the way I was going to unlock it to use for t-mobile but can't get pass that screen. Any help would be great.

    You need to do a jailbreak/unlock. The process is detailed in the tutorial at the top of this page.

    Make sure you are on 2.2 not 2.2.1, as 2.2.1 cannot be used on another network for the iPhone 3G.

    The phone will not let you past that screen until you do the jailbreak process.
