My iphone model #A1241 got locked after I tried to download some music from itunes. I am only allowed to make emergency call and it is now asking to insert a valid sim card to activate


Firstly try your sim in another phone and see if it works...if NOT then the problem is with the sim and you need to contact your network provider. If it Does work then you will need to restore your phone as a new iphone wiping all data and re-activating it.

Hope this helps!

Use the following steps to restore your iPhone.


***** IF YOU CANT SEE YOU IPHONE IN ITUNES OR IT IS STUCK AT THE APPLE LOGO - POWER DOWN YOUR PHONE - HOLD DOWN THE HOME BUTTON FOR AROUND 6SECS WHILST CONNECTING TO ITUNES - RELEASE BUTTON - ITUNES WILL THEN APPEAR WITH MESSAGE SAYING IT HAS DETECTED IPHONE IN RECOVERY MODE & CONTINUE TO RESTORE YOUR PHONE - FOLLOW FROM STEP 6! ) *****
  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.

  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  8. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:

    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, 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.

  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be able to see the following in iTunes:
    ht1414_08--set_up-003-en.png
    Select the backup you want for your device and select the Continue button to complete your device's restoration.
If you do not want to restore from backup, select "Set up as new...

Restore Problem with iphone A1203 2g


Well, your SIM card must be compatible to your iphone carrier. From what I understand, so far only AT&T is able to give out SIMs for iPhones; however, that may have changed to the addition of another carrier (perhaps Verizon, or so I hear) If you have the correct SIM card, then I would suggest that you go to your nearest wireless store and ask for one that may help your situation. Otherwise, if you don't want to do that then just unlock your phone :) There are videos on youtube that you can look at, programs that you have to download and what not, but it's doable.... or you can take it to a side stand wireless and have them unlock it for you :)

I have an unlocked iPhone 2G,which I've been using on Orange UK for 2 years. I want to change to Vodafone (better reception where I live). I think it was probably originally an O2 phone (as they all were...


If your Iphone is officially unlocked then it should work with any (other) network compatible SIM card - just insert a friend SIM on another network (or just get a 'free' Vodafone pre-paid starter SIM for testing) and turn-on the unit - if it is locked in any way, it will tell you!
When you do a factory reset, your unit will normally reverted to original 'o2' BRANDING and defaults: this can only be removed by reflashing/reprogramming your iPhone with 'generic' Apple Iphone firmware. 'Branding' in general in an unlock hanset will not stop you from using most of the resources of your new network but 'unbranding' (andor 'unlocking') can always be performed by a qualified technician.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go! Have fun.

Iphone 3G stuck on emergency call mode..


Try to reinstall a jailbroken version of the iPhone OS.
Do not (ever) use reset to factory if you need the device to be jailbroken to function (e.g. in case you are using an officially unsupported operator/plan)

Iphone on emergency mode


What sim card do you have in your iPhone. If you updated your iPhone to the new 2.0 software then unlocking the iPhone will be impossible.

Unlock iphone


Yeah, just plug in the iPhone and restore it to factory settings. Pretty straight forward.
If you can't get iTunes to recognize it, then you might have to use recovery mode.  Plug in the iPhone to the computer. Press and hold power button and home button until the iPhone powers off.  Once this occurs, wait 5 seconds exactly!!! Then release the power button but keep holding onto the home button.  iTunes should recognize the phone being in recovery mode. 
From there, click restore and you're done.
