Question about Apple iPhone 3G
I am using my dad's old iPhone as my iPod right now. However, I just got a phone that i can download music onto, so I haven't touched my dad's iPhone in like a year. Tonight, I turned it on and it said that it was disabled for 12 years. I don't know how this happened because, as I said, it has been collecting dust in my room for a year now. I don't know what to do. I have tried going onto iTunes to restore it, but it won't connect due to the passcode on the iPhone. Can it be unlocked or should I just get rid of it?

in order to fix your phone, you`ll have to force it to DFU mode and then iTunes should be able to detect it. Once detected, it would ask you to update it to latest firmware. Afta the update your phone would work just fine.
To get it to DFU, follow these steps.
1.Connect your phone to PC.
2. Turn it off completely. To turn it off, press and hold the power button untill you get the the option, slide to turn off.
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.

Try to uninstall your existing iTunes and reinstall the newest version. Then using the usb sync cable, plug it into the computer and the iphone and start iTunes. It should be able to detect that. Try to also plug it in a different usb port on that computer.
Hope this helps. Thank you for using FIxYa.
