Exclamation [Q] i9305 Not registering to networks?

A friend of mine gave me a S3 to play with and said i can have it if i can get it to work.

Now he doesnt know the original network that it came on or what the original firmware version was.

Before i even tried to get a sim card to work i unlocked it using the hidden menu with sha256 etc.

Now when i put in a sim card it doesnt register to a network, I am in the UK and have tried Three, GiffGaff and T-mobile sims as they are what i have and none of the register to network.

I have a couple of bars signal and the phone says "emergency calls only".

The IEMI seems fine and I have backed up the NV data using QPST and EFS Professional

Device Details

GT-i9305
Android verison 4.3
Baseband Version - I9305XXUEML1
Kernal Version - 3.0.31-2051278
Build Number - JSS15J.I9305XXUEML9

What would be the next step to try?

Have you considered that it may be blacklisted...

I wouldnt have thought so, It worked before when he used to use it ages ago, hes had a few phones since.

He messed around with it quite a lot and has changed the firmware/modems and what have you so much he doesnt know what he has done with it so i presume that its just not set up right.
