Hello My iPhone 3g 8gb is stuck ,, http://i54.tinypic.com/xlcmy0.jpg '' like that ... Please help me I have no glue what to do .


It seems your iphone was restore or reset.It needs a activation,you won't be able to open your iphone springboard or menu.

Simply follow this procedure.

* Insert your activated simcard on your iphone

* plug your iphone on your computer using your iphone usb cable,be sure you have i-tunes installed on your computer,and wait until the itunes recognized your iphone.

* After the iphone has been detected, a message on your itunes comes out that you need to activate your phone,on the otherhand,a process takes place, you will see a message on your iphone "Activating", just wait until the process is done.

Now you will see the information of your phone in itunes as well as take a look at your phone now that is already activated and comes out the springboard or menu.

IF you need to jailbreak your iphone that meets the firmware version and the baseband, just look at my TIPS link and for sure it's gonna work easy for you.

i updated new version of software 3.1.3 but it is nt activated it is not supporting 2g sim


Hello,
If you have a carrier locked iPhone (AT&T in the US), then simply connect the iPhone to your computer with the iPhone's USB cable and open iTunes. Upon doing so, iTunes should connect to the internet and activate your iPhone by confirming your AT&T service account via Apple's activation servers.
If your iPhone is using a Non-AT&T carrier, then you must download and use an application like Blackra1n to re-activate your iPhone and jailbreak it, if necessary.
However, please note, if you need the iPhone unlocked as well, firmware OS version 3.1.3 (currently the latest, as of this writing) is not unlockable due to the changes it makes to your baseband. You cannot downgrade your firmware OS either since the baseband changes 3.1.3 makes to your iPhone's modem are permanent.
Until a proper fix is found and released by the iPhone Dev-Team (the creators & supporters of the iPhone unlocking software), the best you can hope for is an activated, jailbroken iPhone, but sadly, not unlocked.
