    If you were using your phone with tmobile it was unlocked. most unlock solutions warn users never to restore the phone in itunes as this can break the firmware. you may be able to get it back up and running again by figuring out how it was unlocked in the first place and retrying those steps however since Apple just came out with the latest firmware update to the iphone you may have to wait until the next update is released to fix your phone.

Can't remember google email and password , I want to clear search history from iPhone b4 selling it

If you are selling it, I would recommend performing a Factory Data Reset (FDR). This will wipe all of your data and settings from the device. The process is similar, regardless of which iPhone you have. Here is a link and the steps you should follow:

Reset iPhone settings. Go to Settings > General > Reset, then choose an option:
  • Reset All Settings: All your preferences and settings are reset.

  • Erase All Content and Settings: Your information, and settings are removed. iPhone cannot be used until it's set up again.

when you download the updates make sure that you re-jailbreak, the phone needs to be jailbroken to use any other network than tmobile. if you update through apple it will un jailbreak the divice making it immpossible for you to use tmobile.

Here's some info about your iPhone display repair:

Repair/replacement from Apple: $200-$250 The iPhone is covered under a standard limited one-year Apple warranty for manufacturer's defects, but is not eligible for AT&T's wireless phone insurance, which (for a $5 monthly fee) will provide replacement in the case of loss or theft, accidental physical or liquid damage or mechanical and electrical failure after the manufacturer's warranty period has expired.
Apple will repair your iPhone for the service fee listed below, plus $6.95 for shipping and handling:
  • 4GB: $199
  • 8GB: $249
Do-it-yourself: $150-$200 tools and loss of your warranty Several third-party companies sell replacement iPhone screens, which include the LCD and associated components. PDAParts sells the complete replacement screen for $150 and has a how-to-video for self-installation.

Hope this helps.

Vpn information for iphone 3g

Y would u want to connect to a Virtual Private Network? If u dnt kno the account name and server i dnt think you need a vpn as these are usually used for private business's . But i think you might need to set up cellular data network instead. If your on a 3g data network then u'll need tmobile to reset it for ya bcuz the cellular data network is only available ounce ur using edge. The 3g network is supposed to automatically configure the right settings for ya.

2 Problems..Sim Card Problems

Well, first off, an iPhone won't work at all with a T-Mobile SIM card. American iPhones are locked to AT&T's network -- only AT&T SIM cards will work in them.

As far as activating it with AT&T, make sure that the iPhone isn't connected to the computer while you install iTunes. Once iTunes is installed, connect the iPhone to the computer and iTunes should launch automatically and begin the activation wizard. Just follow the instructions on the screen and answer the questions.
