what did you do to unlock/jailbreak? if it isn't unlocked it will only recognise the original network provider and it won't recognise PAYG SIM which repair man prob used. did you have signal on network before unlock??

i did the resetting network steps before i took it in...multiple times.

the iphone shows "no SIM"

originally i jailbroke it with redsnow, unlocked it with ultrasnow. i did this multiple times. even tried heaveniphone's ultrasnow. i have a feeling the problem might be within the hardware. i got it from my boyfriend and he has dropped a few times so something might have been knocked loose.
