My iphone ran out of battery mid-wipe

My friend gave me his iphone 3g because he bought a new 3GS. before he gave it to me he tried to wipe it to a clean slate. In the middle of the wipe the battery ran out, now whenever i turn it on it just shows the apple logo in the middle and then turns off again. I plug it into the computer and it doesnt show up in itunes. Is there any way I can fix it or wipe it from this state? thanks for your time.

The battery is probably dead. You can locate a repair service who will replace it for you for under $50, or you could do it yourself, it's not very difficult. You can easily find detailed instructions on the web, and the replacement battery costs about $5 on ebay.I found good instructions here, that will give you an idea of whether you want to undertake the repair yourself.

This is not a typical behavior for the iPhone 3GS. You can try putting it into recovery mode to wipe it clean and re-sync it (see: http://osxdaily.com/2011/01/08/iphone-recovery-mode/); if that doesn't work, however, and it truly is "new" as you say, you should return to whatever retail location you bought it from and ask for an exchange. Most stores will allow you to exchange the unit without requiring that you duplicate the problem in front of them.

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME ON MY IPHONE!!?


Your friend must have had her phone unlocked by some software like jailbreak.
This works fine so long as you don't reset it.
Unfortunately this information comes a little late for you but as it is your friend you bought it from maybe they could get it unlocked again or tell you how to do it?

Or maybe you could try yourself.

Remember Google is your friend and how to unlock 3g Iphone should give you more than enough results to find 1 that you can use.

My iphone 3gs keeps losing 3g signal. The only solution to at least make calls & texts is to turn off the 3g. Any ideas as to what is going on?


Try a firmware restore, a guide on how to do that ishere: iPhone Firmare restore. If that doesn't resolve the issue it looks like you need a new logic board which in theory you can replace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.
