I got this messages yesterday stating
iPhone cannot make ore receive calls. Restore using itunes. www.apple.com/support
However, when I try to connect to itunes it will not connect. It says I need to check sim card or unlock. I have takin out my sim card in put it back in and still ge the same message. I can only make emergency calls now. I have searched but cannot seem to find the answer. Some think it may be a bad sim card. Has anyone had this smae problem? Thanks.

Did you Jailbreak your phone prior to this? You need to put it into DFU mode instead of restore mode. You should get a WHITE screen with NO LOGO if you are in DFU.
DFU mode is black screen, just like when phone is OFF...

DFU mode is done while iPhone is connected. It will only turn white for few seconds during restore. It is always been this way since 1.0
Right........ uhuh...... kinda slow there....
