Just updated my Iphone 4 to 5.1.1 everything was going smooth and then all sudden at the activation screen, my iphone keeps saying it is "Searching..." I placed my sim card in the slot and still says "Searching..." took out my sim card still says "Searching...." Restored multiple times, Resetted the Phone multiple times and still "Searching..."
Can anyone help me? Is this a hardware problem? It was working perfectly fine when I was on IOS 4.1.
Looking at your picture is the reason why you are searching. The phone will search until activated and you have to connect it to itunes first to activate.
I cant activate it because the Phone isn't pickin up the sim card and when you take the sim card out the phone is suppose to say "No Sim" but in my case... It just says "Searching..." Obviously you didn't read my description thoroughly.
No Iphone Guru's out there to help me?
Make sure you've restored with your SIM card in. If that fails, try getting a new SIM.
