Open itunes. with your phone off hold home button and plug phone into computer and hold until itunes sees the phone. You can restore then. The phone will be in dfu mode. If that doesn't do it connect the phone hold home and power for 6 secs. then release the power button while holding the home until itunes sees phone. Restore and use your phone again...

Iphone repair is easy but you might loose all the data on it.


Hold power button and home button together for 7 seconds to turn your iphone off.
2/ start your itunes and hold/press home button on your iphone. While holding the home button connect your iphone to itunes.
3/ your iphone will goto recovery mode

after that just restore your phone back to factory setting. you are good to go.

How do I jailbreak my iPhone 4s


"Jailbreaking" is a process that unlocks your iPhone 4 from iTunes, allowing you to install software from the third-party Cydia application store. The apps on Cydia do not have to pass through Apple's approvals process, and often offer functions that are otherwise prohibited by Apple's terms and conditions. Jailbreaking your iPhone can be achieved by visiting a website in the device's web browser that automatically installs Cydia, and the operating system changes that allow it to run. Jailbreaking your iPhone is entirely legal and safe, but does void the device's warranty with Apple. Download and install the latest version of iTunes onto your computer, following the instructions detailed on the Apple website. Connect the iPhone 4 to your computer using its USB cable, and click the "Sync" button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window. This will back up your iPhone 4 prior to jailbreaking as a safety precaution should you need to restore it. Launch your iPhone 4's "Safari" web browser by tapping its icon on the home screen. Click on the link " http://www.jailbreakme.com/ " This will take you to the JailbreakMe website. Tap the blue "Free" button in the upper right corner, and then tap it again when it turns green and its text changes to "Install." This will download and install the Cydia app store on your iPhone 4, and begin the jailbreaking process. Launch Cydia by tapping its icon on the home screen once installation has completed. Tap the "Complete Upgrade" button, and Cydia will be updated to the latest version. The iPhone 4 will reboot to complete the jailbreaking procedure. Hope this helps.

How to jailbreak iphone 3g 3.1.2 firmware with blackRa1n


Step 1: Update iTunes to the latest version available and reboot your computer.
Step 2: Download BlackRa1n from our iPhone downloads page and install it, then reboot your PC (note that rebooting is not necessary but I always do this as a precaution).
Step 3: Plug your iPhone to your computer and launch BlackRa1n. Click on “make it ra1n”.
make-it-ra1n.png Step 4: Your iPhone will now enter recovery mode. The regular recovery mode image on your iPhone will be replaced by a picture of GeoHot.
entering-recovery.png Step 5: BlackRa1n will run on your iPhone and then it will reboot.
done.png A pop up will show up asking you to donate. If you successfully jailbreak your iPhone, I suggest you send $5 or $10 to GeoHot.
Step 6: Once your iPhone reboots, you will notice a new icon on your springboard. This is BlackRa1n. Now make sure you have internet connection and launch BlackRa1n on your iPhone.
blackra1n-installed.jpg Step 7: Choose what installer applications you want to install on your iPhone and then tap “Install”. I suggest only installing Cydia but you may install them all if you want to.

My mini pro wont let me send or recieve mms ive been in touch with meteor.my phone keeps telling me it cant down load messages try again later. please help


Make sure your WIFI is turned off when attempting to download a MMS message. You can turn it back on when you're finished downloading it. Your phone will automatically default to WIFI, however, most service providers do not allow WIFI for downloading MMS messages.

Tried downloading mms app from cydia and phone is frozen


Apps from non-Apple places typically don't go over well. You'll need to do a back up and restore (as new) with iTunes. AT&T has released official MMS as of 09/25, please use it and be sure you have the latest 3.1 software (it will download automatically in back up and restore). Always be cautious with 3rd party app stores, half my calls every day are about sites that crashed people's iPhones.

basicly you need to do a software restore or update on your Iphone. When using Itunes 8.2 you can just select your Iphone and in the summary select either restore or update. I would recommend that you update it seeing that the software version 3 does allow mms
