The phone needs activating you need to put a sim of the original network of the phone in it and connect to iTunes. 30 is very cheap for a iPhone unlock as they are expensive to do so I'm guessing that's not whats been done to your phone

Sounds like its worth a try, it does say when you put the sim in activation required but when you go through the process it stops you saying only a compatable sim may be used so hopefully might work
