APPLE UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just read that apple may be releasing a new update for the iPhone.
If you have unblocked yours, then DO NOT update. It may cause your iPhone to brick (or lock up).
Apparantly there will be a fix for this update sometime soon, so wait for it rather than taking a risk and having an expensive and useless phone.
You do not have to update or use any that are sent to you. Apple don't enforce updates.
So again, don't risk it and wait. !!!!!!

Re: APPLE UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 1.1.1 firmware revision that bricked some unlocked iPhones a couple months ago had to do with buggy unlocking software. Versions of the 'AnySim' package prior to 1.1 corrupted the SecZone which would cause the phone to turn into an expensive iBrick when the 1.1.1 firmware was applied. I don't believe phones that were IPSF or hardware unlocked were affected. Regardless..if you have an unlocked iPhone in the US, definitely wait until the iPhone Dev teams figure it out. If you are like most people and have a locked or 'virgin' iPhone, you shouldn't have any problems with upgrading.

My i phone will not sync with i tunes

Make sure your Itunes & Iphone have latest updates. Apple has updated 3 times since February and it can mess up sync. Update your computer first (under Apple logo - "software update") then log onto Itunes and update Iphone

IPhone 3g White Apple Logo Screen of Death

Press and hold Sleep/Wake and Home until the iPhone resets.
When the Apple logo appears release Sleep/Wake, but do not release Home until you see the prompt to connect the iPhone to iTunes.

to restore the iPhone’s firmware, all your settings, all your media, and all your Apps.
I don't recommend you to do the offered backup, I've seen a few things more reliable then this backup, to say the least...

To avoid the screen of death, do not update all the features with the "Update All" feature, updates your features one at a time, avoid performing other tasks while updating your iPhone.
