Question about Apple iPhone 3G

Apple iphone 3g

My son was trying to download music from itunes. when he unplugged the usb cord, the phone locked up, showing a picture on the phone with the itunes logo at the top and underneath that, a picture of the usb cord. The is the only thing the phone shows when you turn it off & on. We tried resetting it and taking the sims card out. We kept it off for several hours, but nothing seems to be working.

I had this happen to me recently - it happened when I used my old ipod USB lead rather than the USB lead that came with the iphone. I tried a lot of things to resolve it, but the only thing that fixed it was using the USB lead that came with the iphone(it should NOT have the squeeze clips on the sides of the phone plug) to plug it into my PC and let itunes perform its sync.

Good luck!

what you did, is that you restored your iphone just open up itunes, and click restore, and that's it, it will update it to 4.3 version, since it barely came out by apple.

To transfer pictures from iphone to computer


Use the bluetooth to connect your Iphone to the PC.
Open menu - connectivity and click bluetooth to ON.
You can also open the picture and use right key to send via bluetooth. The laptop must be On as it will detect the bluetooth, accept and get all the files send.

Got unlocked iphone, tried to restore factory settings now its stuck on bitten pineapple...any help plz just got this phone?


Hi,
Here u can follow the steps

Step 1: Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of iTunes if you haven’t already. Download iTunes 8.2 from the link given below.
Step 2: Now connect your iPhone with your PC. You must connect it to a single usb port on the backside of your computer. Do not use any usb hub or the ports in the front as this could cause an error during update process.
Step 3: Start iTunes 8.2. Sync your iPhone with your PC so that iTunes backs-up all your important data including settings, apps, music, contacts and photos.
Step 4: You will now have to download a custom cooked firmware for your iPhone version (2G or 3G). I can’t post the download links for these files for the reasons you all know very well. Just Google “iPhone 2G Custom 3.0” (If you are using iPhone 2G) or “iPhone 3G Custom 3.0” (If you are using iPhone 3G) and use one of the torrent links to download the custom created .ipsw file.
Step 5: Once you have downloaded the required .ipsw file, Copy/Paste it into this location:
“C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\” (Windows 7)
“C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\” (Windows Vista)
“C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Update\” (Windows XP)
Step 6: Restart iTunes. You will now be prompted to install this firmware you just download. Just close this prompt dialog by clicking on “x” from the top right-most corner of the window.

Step 7: Now you will have to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware 3.0 that you just downloaded. Click on your phone from the sidebar in iTunes to get to this screen as shown in the screenshot below:

Now press and hold left “Shift” button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update) button in the iTunes and then release the “Shift” button.

This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your downloaded custom firmware 3.0. Select the downloaded .ipsw file and click on “Open”.
Step 8: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps some of which are highlighted below:

Don’t do anything silly at this point. Just wait while iTunes installs the new firmware 3.0 on your iPhone. Your iPhone screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully unlocked and jailbroken iPhone 2G. iPhone 3G on the hand will only be jailbroken, not unlocked. iPhone 3G users will have to wait for Dev-Team to release ultrasn0w on Cydia in order to unlock their phones.
Step 9: Once you are done with the unlocking and jailbreak process. You can now restore all your settings, apps, music, contacts and photos to the newly installed firmware version 3.0 by restoring the backup that you made in Step 3 from iTunes.

Feel free to ask me any question here should you run into any problem during the update process.

Cant use unblocked ihone with itunes it doesnt sync


you cannot log on itunes through the unlocked phone itself,to download music.instead,you must download itunes to your mac or windows vista pc and sync phone through pc to download music. if you update iphone with itunes through the phone it will auto update firmware on the phone ,and your iphone will work no more. h  A ck T & T  USER
