Who to activate a new iPhone for prepay service please let my now the best way thanks


if you are using a new iphone, you have to unbrick (activate) it first.
if you see the apple logo with the usb cable when you turn on the phone, you have to plug your iphone with the usb to the computer, but you have to download the itunes first (www.apple.com) and then click on download itunes. after you have downloaded itunes and connected your iphone thru usb to the computer, follow these steps:
1. make sure the phone in DFU mode by holding down the power and home button at the same time for about eight seconds, until the screen turns off. Keep holding it down. then release holding the power and home button after 5 seconds
2. Hold the home button until you see a pop-up in iTunes telling you that your iPhone is in restore mode and must be restored. The popup should appear within 30 seconds after releasing the power button.
3. Hold the home button until you see a pop-up in iTunes telling you that your iPhone is in restore mode and must be restored. ThIS popup should appear within 30 seconds after releasing the power button.
  • 4. Click OK on the pop-up message and wait for another message that tells you t hat the iPhone is safe to unplug from the computer

  • *** if you unbrick your phone, restoring will erase all data and any apps you had on it before. MAKE SURE to sync and backup your phone in iTunes frequently. You can retrieve information lost during the restore process with the latest backup you did in iTunes



    regarding the prepaid issue, in some countries, there are restrictions that the prepaid sim is not allowed, it is best to contact your service provider if the network allows the use of a prepaid sim card on an iphone

    I bought the iphone off a friend of mine as it was disabled and he already has another phone... i restored the iphone using itunes which worked fine, however itunes then auto attempted to activate it...


    This device will not preform any other function until it is connected to the computer with a valid SIM card in it. The device will then need to be activated with an AT&T (if in the United States) account. Only then will the device function normally

    How to set up my iphone


    here are useful tips for your iphone set up.


    Please read the Activating and Setting Up Manual Instructions below -
    What You Need - To use iPhone, you need:
    • A new wireless service plan with the carrier that provides iPhone service in your area
    • A Mac or a PC with a USB 2.0 port and one of the following operating systems:
    • Mac OS X version10.4.10 or later
    • Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
    • Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate edition
    • Display resolution on your computer set to 1024 x 768 or higher
    • iTunes 7.5 or later, available at www.apple.com/itunes
    • An iTunes Store account (a major credit card is required to open a new account) â An Internet connection
    Activating iPhone
    Before you can use any of iPhone's features, you must activate iPhone by signing up for a service plan with the iPhone service carrier in your area and registering iPhone with the network. If you already have a wireless account with the carrier, you may be able to upgrade your account to work with iPhone, or keep using your old phone and add a new line for iPhone. (Some accounts may not be upgradeable.) You may also be able to transfer your current phone number to iPhone, or get a new one.
    For more information about iPhone, including videos about how to activate and use it, go to:www.apple.com/iphone
    Inserting the iPhone SIM Card
    In some regions, you may need to purchase the SIM card separately and insert it into iPhone before activation. Read the documentation that comes with the SIM card for instructions.
    If your carrier gave you a PIN number to use with your SIM, you may need to enter the PIN before activating iPhone.
    Activate iPhone
    1 Download and install the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
    2 Connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your Mac or PC using the dock and cable that
    came with iPhone. Unless your keyboard has a high-powered USB 2.0 port, you must connect iPhone to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
    3 Follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes to activate iPhone and sync iPhone with
    your contacts, calendars, email accounts, and bookmarks on your computer. A single checkmark in "Set Up Your iPhone" syncs all these items automatically. Or you can use iTunes to customize the information you sync, and to sync your ringtones, music, photos, podcasts, and videos to iPhone. See the following section.
    You can disconnect iPhone from your computer after "Waiting for activation" appears on the iPhone screen. When activation is complete, "iPhone is activated" appears on the iPhone screen. This means that iPhone is fully functional and you can use all of its features.
    Important: If you are migrating your current phone number to iPhone, activation may take from several hours to a day and migration of your number may take several days, depending on your location and previous carrier.
    Syncing iPhone with Your Computer
    When you connect iPhone to your computer, iTunes syncs iPhone with the information and media on your computer, according to how you've configured the iPhone sync settings in iTunes.
    You can set iTunes to sync any or all of the following:
    • Contacts - names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and so on
    • Calendars - appointments and events
    • Email account settings
    • Webpage bookmarks
    • Ringtones
    • Music and audiobooks
    • Photos
    • Podcasts
    • Videos
    Ringtones, music, audiobooks, podcasts, and video content are synced from your iTunes library. If you don't already have content in iTunes, the iTunes Store (available in some countries) makes it easy to purchase or subscribe to content and download it to iTunes. You can also add music to your iTunes library from your CDs. To learn about iTunes and the iTunes Store, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
    Contacts, calendars, webpage bookmarks, and photos are synced from applications on your computer, as described below. Contacts and calendars are synced both ways between your computer and iPhone. New entries or changes you make on iPhone are synced to your computer, and vice versa. Webpage bookmarks are also synced both ways.
    Email account settings are only synced from your computer's email application to iPhone. This allows you to customize your email accounts on iPhone without affecting email account settings on your computer.

    Hi there I have my sim card installed in my iphone but it says no sim first it stuck in activation mode and I tried to activate it by putting the sim card in and connect it to the itunes but I got error...


    Hi there,

    Firstly, because your phone is now jailbroken the software may now be faulty and you may have recurring problems with it.

    But you should restore your iPhone as a new iPhone, it will wipe EVERYTHING, from the phone but it will also mean your working from a "clean" phone as it where, it will put it back to how it was from the day you took it out of the box.

    Follow the details below to restore your iPhone as a new iPhone and then connect it back up to itunes with the sim inserted to activate it, also if you receive any messages on itunes about carrier settings, choose to update as these are what you need to have your network function. Although as I mentioned earlier, I cant guarantee you that your phone will be working and sorted as it is now jailbroken and doing this permantly alters the phones software.

    Hope this helps (please leave feedback)

    1 - Load up lateset itunes on your computer
    2 - Power down your phone completely - swipe to power off
    3 - Hold down the home button (circle button on front of phone) for around 6secs and still holding down connect to the computer
    4 - When you receive a message on itunes saying that an iphone has been detected in recovery mode and needs to be restored. Continue with this
    5 - On the summary page select the restore option
    1. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another. **dont worry if your not asked to do this, you are restoring your phone as new so a back up isnt needed**
