I have just been given a Iphone 3GS purchased from Telstra in Australia. It is not under a plan and therefore shouldn't be locked. My vodafone sim has been in my 2G iphone and has worked fine but in the 3GS i get a 'no network' message, carrier is stuck staying Telstra and i don't seem to be able to change network/carrier. Any ideas? thanks

Probably would have been a good idea to start a new thread for your question;

but you could trying rebooting the iphone (hold the home screen button and power button)

if that fails, restore the iPhone

EDIT: actually, Telstra lock their iphones

I turned on Aeroplane mode accidently and it wouldn't connect to XT when I turned it back on.

I restart fixed this.

Yup: Telstra lock.

Give them a call, and see if they will unlock it (im guessing they need to hand over a code that you type in)
