Legally Unlocked iPhone 3G Got Re-locked after iPhone 2.2 Upgrade

iPhoneAtlas revealed that some users are reporting issues that their legitimate unlocked iPhone 3G (e.g. for those purchased in Hong Kong, Italy, etc) got re-locked again after iPhone 2.2 firmware upgrade. The problem is not universal and only reported by some users. You can find detailed discussion about the issue in this Apple Discussion thread. Quoted from the thread, here are some of the reported issues:

I bought my iphone 3g legally unlocked from HK, and I just upgraded to 2.2, but it seems my phone is locked now, on phone it says emergency calls only and on I tune is its saying not supported SIM, I am connetec to UAE I-Tune

Bought legally unlocked iPhone in Hong Kong. Updated to 2.2 in Germany. No my iPhone seems to be locked. Will contact apple asap.

When I went through the discussion thread, a number of cases are related to unlocked iPhone 3G bought from Hong Kong. As I am living in Hong Kong, I am in a better position to discuss this issue. From what I heard of, there should be no problem with firmware 2.2 upgrade. My friends and colleagues with iPhone 3G are successfully upgraded to the latest firmware version. SIM card can be detected and of course, they can make and receive calls, as well as, we have no issues with WiFi.

Among the issues reported in the discussion thread, some users raised a very good question:

Is that iPhone a genuine unlocked iPhone sold by Apple?

I have the same question. Is it genuine? Or is it a “so-called” legally unlocked iPhone 3G which is actually unlocked by other methods (e.g. TurboSIM)? For those, who are experiencing this issue or you want to purchase a genuine unlocked iPhone 3G, you better check out this link from Apple. The web page lists out all the part numbers of iPhone 3G and the corresponding unlock/lock information.

    I have the same issue, t seems that even thought these phoens are unlocked, they still have a home network like 3 in HK and TIM in itealy…etc, so if you update the phone outside your home network, it locked it. stupid, but true.

    I have been a onlooker here for sometime now. I didnt want to post until I was able to give back just as I have recieved from here. During the hard time
    of the economy today I felt obligated to share with you how I have made it the past 6 months. Now I know this really has nothing to do with this site but as we all know
    we each need tomake money and survive ourselves. Furthermore I wanted to share a site with you that can easily help you as it has helped me. In the past 6 months
    I have been learning Internet Marketing techniques from using Blackhat and WhiteHat stratigies.

    With these techniques I have been able to quit my job and focus just my time to internet marketing and now am making arounf $400 a day. My goal in the next 2 months is to beable to make $1k a day.
    If it wasnt for this site http://www.InternetMarketersforum.com None of this would have happened. If your down and out and needing to make some online I suggest you check out this site.
    If you join the site then you will ba able to see many more private methods to making anything from $100 a day all the way up to $1000′s daily. It just takes a little work on your part but in the end these methods truly work
