Hello My iPhone 3g 8gb is stuck ,, http://i54.tinypic.com/xlcmy0.jpg '' like that ... Please help me I have no glue what to do .


It seems your iphone was restore or reset.It needs a activation,you won't be able to open your iphone springboard or menu.

Simply follow this procedure.

* Insert your activated simcard on your iphone

* plug your iphone on your computer using your iphone usb cable,be sure you have i-tunes installed on your computer,and wait until the itunes recognized your iphone.

* After the iphone has been detected, a message on your itunes comes out that you need to activate your phone,on the otherhand,a process takes place, you will see a message on your iphone "Activating", just wait until the process is done.

Now you will see the information of your phone in itunes as well as take a look at your phone now that is already activated and comes out the springboard or menu.

IF you need to jailbreak your iphone that meets the firmware version and the baseband, just look at my TIPS link and for sure it's gonna work easy for you.

I just restore my iphone 2g with itunes.. i can call,, but i can not open menu.. help plz


You have to jailbreak the phone so you can activate it.
It's a long process but you need to download redsnow 0.9.4, firmware 3.1.3 and 3.1.2 plus the bootloaders.
Since you're done with the restore, run redsnow now.
Select 3.1.2 firmware then follow onscreen instructions.
Check Install Cydia and Unlock when prompted and browse for the bootloaders.
If you followed all the instructions carefully, your phone will be unlocked and activated in no time.

My iphone 2g has no sim card in it but it is stuck on the page where when i slide to unlock its only for an emergency call


It seems that your iPhone 2G is in need of activation. To accomplish this, there are 2 ways:
A. (With AT&T as your service provider)
1. If you do not already have an AT&T sim card, contact AT&T and ask for an AT&T sim card to activate service with them. Choose your plan and insert the sim card in the iPhone.
2. Connect the iPhone to iTunes and you will be prompted to follow a few steps to proceed with the activation process.
3. Sync your iPhone for the first time.
Once completed, you will have your iPhone activated and ready to use on the AT&T network.

B. (Without AT&T as your service provider)
1. You will need to download an application to jailbreak your iPhone. (This will essentially remove certain restrictions on your iPhone 2G that prevent you from utilizing your iPhone on another network, among other things).
2. Connect your iPhone to the computer and run your jailbreak application of choice.
Once completed, your iPhone 2G will be activated and jailbroken. The "emergency call" message will disappear, though you will be prompted with a "no sim card found" message until a sim card from AT&T (or another GSM carrier) is placed in the sim tray.

My iphone 2g has been stuck while restoring please help me for this problem


Hello, Firstly try holding the power and home buttons until the apple logo comes up. Wait for your iphone to start then try again. If this doesn't work your iphone may be bricked. If it wasn't you that caused the problem and your warranty hasn't expired you may be able to take your iphone into an apple store or where you bought your iphone and get an exchange. You should be able to restore your new iphone then

I updated new version of software 3.1.3 but it is nt activated it is not supporting 2g sim


Hello,
If you have a carrier locked iPhone (AT&T in the US), then simply connect the iPhone to your computer with the iPhone's USB cable and open iTunes. Upon doing so, iTunes should connect to the internet and activate your iPhone by confirming your AT&T service account via Apple's activation servers.
If your iPhone is using a Non-AT&T carrier, then you must download and use an application like Blackra1n to re-activate your iPhone and jailbreak it, if necessary.
However, please note, if you need the iPhone unlocked as well, firmware OS version 3.1.3 (currently the latest, as of this writing) is not unlockable due to the changes it makes to your baseband. You cannot downgrade your firmware OS either since the baseband changes 3.1.3 makes to your iPhone's modem are permanent.
Until a proper fix is found and released by the iPhone Dev-Team (the creators & supporters of the iPhone unlocking software), the best you can hope for is an activated, jailbroken iPhone, but sadly, not unlocked.

Iphone 2g lock after reset.


Find somebody with an AT&T sim card, put it into the phone and plug it into itunes to get it up an running. Otherwise if your not using AT&T you're gonna have to jailbreak the phone to use it. If your a prepaid AT&T customer, you can activate it but you gotta call AT&T at 800 331 0500

if it still gives you problems then you have a hardware issue, apple won't touch a jailbroken iphone so hopfully you have the apple care protection. Restore it to factory settings and try to take it in for service.
