How to fix some mysterious problems.

I got an iphone 3G from a friend living in the US ( im from a diffrent country ). at first the iphone was locked, but after a few days it changed to an unlock mode ( i checked the IMEI number ). when i did restore in itunes, it wrote me in the end " The iphnoe has been UNLOCK , press continue" , but i dont have a continue button ! i can press just "done" in the upper corner.

In the iphnoe i can use apps but I dont have a signal with my sim card. I try to jailbreak it - but i still got no signal. evreytime i restart the iphone its writing " waiting for activation" and when i close it its just disapear..

so I have iphone without a signal with my sim... what can i do ? ( i cant upgrade to to ipad baseband because my iphone doesnt support it )

i read somewhere it can destroy the iphone for good because my iphone doesnt support it. I know after you upgrade the baseband you can lower it back, but im too afraid... is there another way ? ( by the IMEI and the itunes the phone is UNLOCK so i dont think i need ultrasnow... maybe because i restore without at&t sim ? )

Only 3Gs units with new baseband chip gets bricked. You have a 3G. You read wrong.

anyway i heard sometimes they have GPS problems and other stuff.. is there another way ? maybe i need to activate with redsnow ?

Try to restore again. You can always get iPad baseband and use redsn0w downgrade to use GPS.

Funny that you ask a question here in jbqa and when advised what to do, you still want to insist that what you read somewhere else is the right thing to do.
