Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
Ok. There is a nasty rumor that only the update affects iphones that are unlocked. This is very untrue. Whenever you try to use almost every accessory that was made for an iphone, You will encounter this problem. As well, most of these products when you plug in your iphone will cause a message to pop up stating that the device is not compatible with an iphone. and will ask you if you want to put the phone into airplane mode. Though this option is available you now have a device trying to charge, and use an incompatible device. Hence the black out. I went through those myself with a ipod dock alarm clock. Unfortunately, unlocking your phone, voids your warranty.. I will still try to to find a way to revive you iBrick but the outlook is bleak. Sorry.

I had the same problem. The phone is not bricked, only the baseband has been damaged. Try to look on filehippo for older versions of iTunes. Start from 22.214.171.124 , if you fail go up a version. 126.96.36.199 solved my problem. After i ran ziphone and it is up & running still. Only thing is it is getting very hot in the charger, but oddly enough I am getting better reception. Don't ask me why. For iTunes and on filehippo click HERE
Just try to restore it (shift+restore) and select firmware 1.1.4. Don't give up it will work. Error (6) will be error ???? on the older itunes. If itunes says cannot run, just move your iTunes music folder to somewhere else. Good luck!

Plugged mine into my car *** iPod FM transmitter, same interface, and it went black. Got warm, and would never turn on again.
Replaced the battery, and it's still dead.
Plugged it into a wall for 20 min, and it got hot again, so I unplugged it, and it was still warm for 2 hours. Still dead.
Can't return it here in Canada, it's a brick.
Apple should have warned people, or at least not used the SAME IPOD CONNECTOR.

I have the same problem. I was @ liverpool's airport and I was going to buy the bose dock for the Iphone. When I plugged it in it was working fine, as I pulled it out from the dock the screen came crazy and I just started off and on and it worked but the battery drained in few minutes. then I tried to charge it and nothing ... Now I've got the battery pack as I thought the battery is not good anymore. I replaced the battery and it worked. I have synced the Iphone with the computer and It was saying that it was charging but I left the Iphone charging for a whole night and the battery was still flat. I noticed that the Iphone is getting hot near the camera aswell. I don't know what to do. Its an expensive device for nothing! Please help if you know something

I just plugged my iphone into my ipod hi-fi and it went dead. nothing happening at all. cant switch it on anyway. reset, switch-off, switch-on - nothing works.
i was using firmware 1.1.1 and had unlocked my iphone.
was working perfectly until i plugged it into my hi-fi.
what can I do? can it fixed? should I send it to apple?

If you allowed itunes to update your firmware (software for iphone) while it was plugged in to your dock, then that is your problem. Try checking iphone hacking sites for information on how to "unbrick" the phone if that is the case. Never let itunes update software on a hacked iphone.
