    Hello,

    I unlocked my iPhone (that I personally bought in Switzerland) with yellowsn0w (0.98) and it worked already fine in Russia/Germany/France but in UK I always get "no service" and can't connect to any carrier. Could anyone help meor explain, why it works in some countries an doesn't in the UK?

    Thanks!

    Got any more info on the phone? Firmware and baseband?

    Also, what SIM are you using in the UK?

    Same problem on one of my iPhones too. 2G running 2.0 with modem firmware 04.05.04_G
    Everything else seems to work, wi-fi etc is fine. Phone sees the sim card (iTunes tells me the phone number) but still I get the "No service" notification. Was thinking about this earlier, is the pre-pwned firmware which comes from Apple location specific? In other words, should I be using a different mirror to download from for UK use? Even with an o2 (original network) sim card in it, I still get the "No service" notification.
