Hi, welcome to fixya! I've read a lot of blogs about itunes 8.2 which is the latest version of itunes. The problem is when you update your iphone firmware and when it restarted your iPhone will be locked up, so beware of that. Why don't you uninstall your updated iTunes and install the 7.6 version and run the process. If still nothing detected, if you are using PC computers transfer your USB connection at the back of your CPU, cause front and back connection has a power speed difference. Try it first before downgrading your iTunes to a 7.6 version.

I put in wrong code and now it says disabled connect to iTunes but I set the phone up with wifi so how do I get in my iPhone?


Your iPhone is currently on disabled mode after entering wrong combination of password. There are several ways to gain back the access to your iPhone:

First Method: iTunes
1. Using your computer, open iTunes where you have recently backed up your iPhone.
2. Connect your iPhone. Once your iPhone is detected, a notification will appear to enter your passcode. Note: If the lockscreen doesn't show, proceed to next method.

Second Method: Update

1. While your iPhone connected to iTunes, powered on. Hold down the Power key + Home button simultaneously until the screen off, keep on pressing the Home button then release the Power key until iTunes detected that your iPhone is on Recovery Mode. Note: An iTunes logo will appear on the iPhone when Recovery mode is enabled.
2. On iTunes, click on Update iPhone. It may take a while to download the software, so leave it for a while connected until the installation complete.
3. Once updated, try unlocking your iPhone. Note: If you still can't unlock your iPhone proceed to next method.

Third Method: Restore (last option)
1. If method 1 and 2 fails to unlock your iPhone. Then try to restore your iPhone into its factory default and restore your backup after.
2. Go to recovery mode. See method 2 step 1 process to enable recovery mode.
3. Then choose Restore iPhone. Note: Restoring your iPhone will delete and remove all of your data including apps, music, photos, messages, contacts, notes, etc.
4. It may take a while to download and install the software, so leave your device connected until the process complete.
5. After your iPhone has been restored, choose restore from a backup or iCloud, then wait until your iPhone successfully synced your old data.
6. Try unlocking your iPhone.

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**

  2. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you.
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  3. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    After a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.

IPhone 2g will not boot to Apple logo or turn on.


Hi

Have you tried holding the power button and the home button on the front for around 10secs?

Try this, the Apple logo should appear and get the phone to boot up.

If that doesnt work, boot up your computer and make sure you have the most recent version of itunes on it and then hold down the home button on the front of the phone while plugging into your computer and keep holding down the home button until you get a message on itunes saying an iphone has been detected in recovery mode. Then release the button and restore your iphone as a new iphone

**** Because your phone wont power on and it has been restarted this way you need to restore as a new iphone to get it to work again meaning you will loose any info on the phone ****

Make sure you update your phones software its most likely a factor to your phone shutting itself down.

Ive put the details below on how to restore your iphone, while restoring it will automatically update it for you - (after holding the home button and receiving the message on itunes follow the restore info)

The phone wont slide to answer


It MAY be a software issue within the phone, try restoring your phone, be warned though you can loose ALL data on the phone, if you restore your iphone as new it will wipe it and make it like the day you get it from the box so if it is software problem with the phone it will be gone but if you restore from a back up the problem may still be there.

If you do restore it as new and the problem is still there it may be an issue with the hardware of the phone, you should check out your warrenty with apple if your still in it they will help you out hardware wise.

3. Then, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds.
4. Without leaving the power button, now press and hold the HOME button, for 10seconds.
5. Now leave the power button, but keep holding the home button for next 20 seconds.

The phone should be detected by the PC to be in recovery mode. Now, iTunes will help you update and/or restore your phone.

Starting Problem


Hold the power and the home button until the phone reboots thats a good idea. Or make sure the USB is right and secure for the iphone so itunes can read it. Try this about 5 times it has happened to me and now its finally working. Once itunes has recognized your iphone press restore and download the newest update. If this is helpful then please vote for me.

Thanks
