You do need Tiger (OS X 10.4.10) or above to connect to an iPhone, 10.3.9 does not have the appropriate software to connect to your iPhone. Do not forget however that Leopard (OS X 10.5) will be released soon so hold off upgrading until it is, you'll be glad you upgraded anyway and you'll also be able to connect to your iPhone. There are in fact 1 or 2 ways you can connect to you're iPhone from 10.3 (or any *NIX for that matter but they are very technically involved and will not provide the functionality you are looking for.

Iphone 5 charging and connection problems

You need to figure out the amperage of the usb port in the Veracruz, the dealer should have access to that. If the port isn't putting out more than 500ma the iPhone may fail to charge. I recommend a charger atleast 1amp or higher. You either need to connect using bluetooth to the audio system or a hard wired aux cable to the input of the veracruz.

The activation code should come on the box that you purchased the Operating System in, either Osx or Windows or Linux. If you are looking to pirate an activation code I cannot help you there because this is illegal.

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
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
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 i have a new i phone and i want to activate it

iPhones are usually activated at the service provider's store where you bought it. If not, you must call them to assist you of activation.
Sometimes, to activate an iPhone, all you need to do is to insert the right carrier sim card that comes with it (e.g. AT&T in the U.S.). Know who's the Carrier (service provider) in your country that have the exclusive rights to sell iPhones, then buy their sim card for you iPhone.

My Iphone wont turn on

If you are comfortable with opening devices you can take a multimeter to the battery. If the phone doesn't turn on if you battery has 3.7V or more you have a logic board issue. Oh, did you do a hard reset yet? Press menu and sleep/wake button together for 5 sec. If after all revival attempts you still don't get it to turn on It's usually an issue with the logic board, so ultimately if you want to resolve it, the logic board needs to be replaced. There are iPhone Repair guides that show you how.

Iphone asking to be activated no orig sim

It sounds like the handset is iCloud locked (find my iPhone hasn't been turned off). This happens too many second hand phones, the previous owner isn't aware of this or u have bought a stolen phone?
If you know the previous owner they would know the apple ID and ID password to activate it, after that you would have to do a reset the phone.
Good luck

Error 300

OSX support for Powerbooks is VERY sloppy. Try installing the iP90 in "Classic" (OS9.2.2) instead. 922 has built-in drivers for every port on Powerbooks. OSX can't even load a SCSI card on laptops. Or iRda, or any USB above 1.1 etc.... very shabby. Apple was sued for "abandoning" Powerbook support with OSX and LOST a BIG class action. Alternatively, partition your HD with TWO operating systems, and load 9.2.2 as a boot option (with OSX as the other). OSX is "emulating" 922, but this method allows OS922 to "run itself". It is MUCH faster (boots in 10 seconds, compared to MINUTES for OSX) and your iP90 will work on USB or irDa -both! 922 will only need a 700mb partition at least... OSX needs 4gb or more (to accomplish far less, far slower)
