Registered my imei - now my phone isnít working

Hi all,

I bought a Turkish simcard last Friday, put it in my phone, it didnít work. Turns out my phone wasnít unlocked. Got it unlocked, put my Turkish simcard in, worked! Fab! Get the ďyou have 120Ē days message, yep no problem. Registered my phones imei the next day and paid the tax office. Went to Turk Telekom who helped with register it online. Got home, phone was fine, then 10pm last night, no signal. Is this normal? Are they registering my phone? Iíve got a phone not allowed message in my iPhone network carrier settings! Please help! How long did it take to register your imeiís and is it because itís new year and no-one is working so no-one to press the OK button if there is one?

Thanks!
