    iPhone 3GS unlocked not working with 2G network
    Hi all,

    I just bought an iPhone 3GS off ebay.It was advertised as unlocked.I received the phone and under carrier it shows 3 9.0.I am in Australia.I inserted a 3 sim card and it shows signals and roaming message.But when i insert my 2/2.5G lycamobile prepaid sim card,it 1st shows 1 signal bar and then kept on searching for sometime,then either shows "no service"or "invalid SIM".I tried resetting it and restarted multiple time but of no use.I don't think if it is jailbroken as i dont see cydia application on it.

    Kindly help
