At this point you will have to jail break the iphone and then unlock it. It will resett the phone and allow you to pop in any sim card you want as well as unlocking it and making it your own. There are lots or websites that will tell you how to jailbreak it and unlock it for free. There is a bunch of Youtube videos that also show you how to do these. It is very simple and takes about 30min to complete. Once you learn you can make a couple buck unlocking other peoples iphone & ipod touch cause they both unlock the same way. Here is a site that I use and works great it gives you step by step free. http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/tips-tricks/how-to-jailbreakunlock-iphone-2g3g3gs-on-3-1-2-blackra1nblacksn0w-guide/

A disabled iphone with passcode I found at dump one day how do I get it working


if its icloud locked there is no way to do it because you need the icloud account to acces it. if it is a 4 digit code or phrase code a hard reset should do the job as long as the person that lost it or had it didnt lock it wit icloud. let me know if you need more help

To reset your iPhone settings,

picexporterror From the home screen, Tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings.


Still having problems?
Try deleting all the existing settings.

Note: The step given below will delete all the data on your iPhone. It will also give a reset to your settings.
From the home screen, Tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents and Settings.

Or:

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for 10 seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

Let me know if this helps or not, there are other resets available :

My iPhone 3g froze and I was told to Restore Factory Settings, but this has lost all my music and apps! How do I get them back?


I hate to say this but...
You can't get them back!
When you reset to factory settings that is EXACTLY what you are doing.
Your Iphone is reset to blank with default settings.
This means your downloads, pics, tunes, apps, messages ALL disappear.
I believe the Iphone does warn you of this before you do it.
Really sorry. :(
But good news is your Iphone works again. :)

GPS not working


Try this -

1) Settings > Enable 3G Change to Off.

2) Use the iPhone GPS receiver to locate your position

3) Settings > Enable 3G change to On.

There are two positioning systems in the iPhone 3G, one is the 3G network, and the second is the GPS receiver. The problem occurs when the data from the two systems doesn't match.

Cannot remember psp password


I just bought a new iPhone 3G and I erred when copying down the password given to me by APPLE as part of the set-up process. After several attempts I finally noticed my mistake but by then I was being 'locked out' of my device. I guess this is a security measure. Now what do I do - suggestions? Thanks.
