So, they might of done this, to hide the fact it has no service, and has been blocked, it's an expensive gamble, if its stolen or block for none payment.

Both answers could be right. could be a case of updating but could be IMEI blocked, which means its useless.

I think its a bit to early in the OS stage to be an IMEI block, i would expect the phone to turn on but not be able to connect to the carrier. but as stated by Willo, If the phone was stolen and the user wiped the phone with mobileMe, this is the screen that comes up and can only be cleared connecting it to the phones original library.

i have got exactly the same problem with my iphone since a couple of weeks ago, the problem seemed to have started after i dropped it about 1ft, it started by saying searching for signal etc then emergency calls only in all different languages then keeps restarting itself and only going as far as the apple screen before restarting and then the same screen as what is in that gumtree listing connect to itunes and after restoring it maybe 10 times its still not working, sometimes it would be normal for a couple of hours but keeps going back to that screen, also started getting an error 1013 when doing the restore but dont recall seeing it the other day when i done it, so if anyone knows were i could get this problem fixed i would be most grateful, my warrenty only expired a couple of weeks ago (sods law).
