Iphone doesn't connect to computer

I have an unlocked iphone firmware 1.1.4 and it won't connect to the computer when i plug it in. it just makes these three low beeps. it chargers just fine, but i really want to add music to it. i don't want to put it in recovery mode unless i have to, because if that doesn't work than I can't get it out of recovery mode and i'm stuck with a worthless broken iphone since apple won't take it with 3rd party apps on it. if there's anything i can do with winsp and openssh i'm good with that and was hoping i could find a solution doing that, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried turning the phone completely off (power down), and powering back up again?

If this doesn't work, I think it is worth doing another restore. Will iTunes allow you to restore this phone, or does iTunes not see the phone at all?

Bought my iphone 5 and am unable to charge using both the plug and computer. however am able to charge using the iphone 4 plug. please help!


Before you can charge your iPhone on the computer, your computer needs to install the drivers for it. You might have to reinstall the drivers for it. A good way to check if the drivers are incorrectly installed is to see if iTunes detects it. Try updating your iTunes since the old version of iTunes won't work with ios6 and all iPhone 5 are shipped with ios6

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.

My iphone will not ring and i checked the orange dot


Some users who have recently updated/restored to the new iPhone firmware 3.0 have reported to have got into a problem where their phone randomly doesn’t ring when there is a call nor does the keyboard or slide to unlock button sound anymore. I got into this problem as well after unlocking and jailbreaking my iPhone 3G with firmware 3.0, my iPhone suddenly stopped ringing on calls randomly, resulting in missing a lot of important calls.
So if your iPhone isn’t ringing sound on calls, or if you are unable to hear the keyboard or slide to unlock click sounds, then try the following fixes before you panic and call Apple support:
Fix #1: Push feature is currently not working properly on jailbroken iPhone’s. If you have installed an application which supports Push Notification System then try disabling the Push feature as it may solve the problem.
Fix #2: Try Resetting the iPhone: Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This will reset your phone’s setting to factory defaults. Your contacts, calendars photos and any other data will stay intact.
Fix #3: There is a slight possibility that your iPhone’s headphone jack may have got some dust or rust which is causing the phone to think that the headphones are still plugged in when they actually aren’t. Try blowing out air in the headphone jack or try plugging the headphones in and out repeatedly. This trick may solve the no sound problem.
Fix #4: Restore/Update you iPhone back and start afresh: If the above solutions doesn’t help in solving your problem then you will have to start from scratch by first restoring your iPhone to the the original firmware
3.0 from iTunes, jailbreak it using redsn0w and then finally unlock(3G users only) it using ultrasn0w. This has fixed my problem.
Fix #5: Install Insomnia from Cydia: Install Insomnia as your last resort. When you press the power button on the top, iPhone goes into sleep mode after 30 seconds, in the process turning off your WiFi, sound and other stuff. When Insomnia app (available for free from Cydia) is enabled, applications will keep running and sound & WiFi will stay connected when the screen is off. This should fix your problem if all of the above solutions have failed to fix it.

Got unlocked iphone, tried to restore factory settings now its stuck on bitten pineapple...any help plz just got this phone?


Hi,
Here u can follow the steps

Step 1: Make sure you have downloaded the latest version of iTunes if you haven’t already. Download iTunes 8.2 from the link given below.
Step 2: Now connect your iPhone with your PC. You must connect it to a single usb port on the backside of your computer. Do not use any usb hub or the ports in the front as this could cause an error during update process.
Step 3: Start iTunes 8.2. Sync your iPhone with your PC so that iTunes backs-up all your important data including settings, apps, music, contacts and photos.
Step 4: You will now have to download a custom cooked firmware for your iPhone version (2G or 3G). I can’t post the download links for these files for the reasons you all know very well. Just Google “iPhone 2G Custom 3.0” (If you are using iPhone 2G) or “iPhone 3G Custom 3.0” (If you are using iPhone 3G) and use one of the torrent links to download the custom created .ipsw file.
Step 5: Once you have downloaded the required .ipsw file, Copy/Paste it into this location:
“C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\” (Windows 7)
“C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\” (Windows Vista)
“C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Update\” (Windows XP)
Step 6: Restart iTunes. You will now be prompted to install this firmware you just download. Just close this prompt dialog by clicking on “x” from the top right-most corner of the window.

Step 7: Now you will have to restore your iPhone to this custom firmware 3.0 that you just downloaded. Click on your phone from the sidebar in iTunes to get to this screen as shown in the screenshot below:
capture2_thumb.png
Now press and hold left “Shift” button on the keyboard and then click on “Restore” (Not “Update) button in the iTunes and then release the “Shift” button.
2e_thumb.png
This will make iTunes prompt you to select the location for your downloaded custom firmware 3.0. Select the downloaded .ipsw file and click on “Open”.
Step 8: Now sit back and enjoy as iTunes does the rest for you. This will involve a series of automated steps some of which are highlighted below:
asd.pngafasf.pngggg.png
Don’t do anything silly at this point. Just wait while iTunes installs the new firmware 3.0 on your iPhone. Your iPhone screen at this point will be showing a progress bar indicating installation progress. After the installation is done, iPhone will restart automatically and you should now have a fully unlocked and jailbroken iPhone 2G. iPhone 3G on the hand will only be jailbroken, not unlocked. iPhone 3G users will have to wait for Dev-Team to release ultrasn0w on Cydia in order to unlock their phones.
Step 9: Once you are done with the unlocking and jailbreak process. You can now restore all your settings, apps, music, contacts and photos to the newly installed firmware version 3.0 by restoring the backup that you made in Step 3 from iTunes.

Feel free to ask me any question here should you run into any problem during the update process.

IPhone won't do anything!


Before you connect your iPhone or iTouch to iTunes.
Try and put the device into DFU Mode.
Plug your USB cord into your Device and Not into your computer.
Turn the Phone all the way off by holding the power button until the Red Bar appears and Slide it off..
Hold the "Home" Button Down for 5 seconds.
Then Push and Hold the "Power" Button while still holding the "Home" button and count to 7
Let go of the "Power" button while still holding the "Home" Button and Hold the Home button for approx 26 seconds.
The screen may or may not go blank with lines. No Worries!! now plug the USB into the computer with iTunes open. If the iphone is in DFU mode, iTunes will come up with a popup that says, "Itunes has detected an iPhone that is in recovery mode. Your must restore it"
Once this occurs, you can restore your device with any firmware by pressing "SHIFT" on your keyboard and "Clicking" Restore with your Mouse. Restore your device and let it mount to itunes.
If you are unlocking the device, I would suggest using "QuickPwn" you can get it HERE
You can download Apple iPhone Firmware HERE, when using quickpwn you will need to upgrade your firmware to 1,2_ 2.2_5G77...NOT 2.2.1
(TIP: Don't restore your iphone with custom firmware in iTunes. Restore with the original Firmware and Unlock or Jailbreak letting Quickpwn make the custom firmware....Also if you have a 3G do not ungrade in itunes to the 2.2.1 firmware, it changes the phone modem baseband and renders it "NOT" unlockable)
