SOURCE: Won't detect Sim Card

Calm down. Could be a number of things causing lost service. Restart the PC with iphone disconnected. Bring up itunes, plug in iphone and let the activation sit for a couple of minutes. If status does not change about sim card, eject the sim card using a paper clip, insert that paper clip into the tiny hole on the top of the phone. disconnect the phone, insert the card again, and reconnect. Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: My original 80GB Ipod gets an error code 1437

I'm not really sure about my solution but i did it and it WORKED so well. When you catch some error like it, you just leave your Ipod alone, wait until the screen turn black and go back to charge it. I really WORKED for me when it leave it alone and thought that it already died. I hope u will it through it.

My i phone just shut down, and when i try to charge it, what appears is an image of a charger and "i tune "

This is normal behaviour for a new iPhone, you need to install iTunes from The screen shows a USB cable and the iTunes logo. For first time use, you need to set up your phone and sync it with iTunes. After you have downloaded and installed iTunes, open it by clicking on the icon that should have been placed on your desktop, and then plug your iPhone in via the USB cable. iTunes will guide you through the process.
This can also occur if you have had some error with your phone, in this case, it is prompting you to restore the original software, this is also accomplished the same way as above. This screen also may have accidentally shown up if you kept the home (bottom) button pressed while plugging it into your computer if it was off.
If you are confident that no error occured with your phone, try pressing the sleep and home buttons at the same time and holding them for 10seconds. The phone should start up normally. If not, then continue the iTunes procedure illustrated above.

Iphone 3Gs is just lifeless no sound nothing....Itunes recognizes it and says its in recovery mode and it needs to be updated and restored so I press restore and it starts downloading or something for...

Error 21 is most commonly encountered if you backed up the phone with jailbroken software and then try to restore the jailbroken software. If that's what you're trying to do, I would advise against it. Try to restore from a non-jailbroken image instead.
If that's not what you're doing, there's some other reason that your restoring image has been corrupted, and I'd recommend restoring from another computer, but that would sadly mean starting over from scratch with all your saved data.

When I try to restore my Ipod Nano Itunes wont let says on the Ipod corrupted restore via Itunes I follow the instuctions but it wont restore.

If itunes is prompting you to restore the ipod but it will not there might be something blocking it on your Computer

The best test is to try to restore from another cpu with itunes

- if it restores then you can take it back to your cpu and re-sync the muisc

- if you get the same error or issue with another cpu

Then is is probably an issue with the hard ware of your ipod

You might want to take it to the apple store or best buy to test

Good luck

It won't restore

I had the same issue several months ago. If you have admin rights on your computer, create another user and restore the ipod on the new user. Then you will have to go back and to your original user and update. However, you will need to check your USB port and make sure it is fast enough for the update. That is why it crashes when you try to update.

Ipod 1st generation doesnt show up on itunes & wont restore

ziphone is notorious for permanently bricking iphones...if you interrupted it when it was messing with your baseband you're screwed. As far as the nano goes, did you try disk mode yet?
plug in your ipod, flick the hold switch on then off again, then hole menu and select for 6 seconds till apple logo appears, then immediately hold down select and play/pause. this should bring up a checkmark with ok to disconnect. from there, you should be able to either immediately see it in itunes or format it with HFS+ or FAT32 depending on your OS. Good Luck...

Iphone will not restore

Try restoring in DFU mode, which is different than recovery mode. I happened to stumble across it while trying to restore an iPhone 3G that a user unplugged in the middle of the 3.1 update. It kept showing an error of 1611 or 13 and wouldn't restore in recovery mode. I found this DFU mode option and the restore worked fine. The DFU mode keeps the iPhone OS from loading, so you don't run into as many compatibility problems. Go into DFU mode, then try restoring the phone and see if that works.
To enter DFU mode:
1. Connect your iPhone to your computer
2 . Turn iPhone off. You may have to hold the power and home buttons down together to force the phone off
3. Once the phone is off, hold the power and home buttons together for 10 seconds exactly
4. After 10 seconds, release the power button but keep holding home until the computer recognizes that a USB device was plugged in
5. iTunes should detect your iPhone correctly, and also allow you to restore to the factory default settings
