Thank you for contacting Fixya Support I am glad to assist.

What you may need to do is eject the SIM card and then re-insert it and try to update your iPhone via iTunes again.

According to Apple, the iPhone has to contain compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier and only those cards may be used to activate iPhone.

So make sure you have the right SIM card that is supported by the current carrier you have for your phone service.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,

How do you factory hard reset a apple iphone with the model number A1332 an no sim?


iTunes enables you to restore iPhone to factory settings. Before you start restoring iPhone to factory settings, please note that you need to install the latest version of iTunes on your PC or MAC. Then go to Settings > iCloud to turn off Find My iPhone. Now, you can factory reset your iPhone with iTunes as follows.

1. Plug iPhone into the computer with the USB cable. The iTunes on your computer will automatically launch. If not, double-click the icon to start it.
2. Click the name of your iPhone at the upper right corner of iTunes, and then the information of your iPhone will be shown. Click the "Restore iPhone" button in the window to start.
3. iTunes will ask whether you want to back up iPhone before restoring. You'd better choose "Yes" for the reset will erase the contents in your iPhone. Then iTunes will start restoring your iPhone to factory settings.

I forgot my password and now my Iphone is disabled. how do i bypass the lock screen?


this is a semi-easy fix ok so you need to have a pc with itunes installed, then you can fix it in 2 ways, #1)(might not work anymore) just plug your iphone into the computer with itunes installed on it!(YOU ALSO MUST BE LOGGED IN TO ITUNES ON THE PC)

#2)(for sure works but i would`t recomend it because it deletes all your app and saves their data but not the application so ull have to redownload the app but if your on level 5 on zzzb then it wont be onstalled but if you install it then youll still be on level 5 on zzzb) ok so you have to backup your iphone useing the backup option on itunes on the pc....once backed up you need to factory reset your phone useing the pc version of itunes.....then you must start your iphone while its still connected to your pc and itunes will ask if you want to restore from a backup......click yes and select the backup you just made! wal-a its done (again not recomended)

HOPE this helps(i realy do)

Unforunatly when you hook the phone up to Itunes it updates and relocks itself. This is Apple and At&t's way of keeping it locked. You are going to have to get the phone unlocked again.

MY IPHONE COULD NOT RECOGNIZE MY SIM CARD AFTER I UPDATED TO IPHONE 2


Hi,

the 2.0 firmware update disables the Zibri unlock.
No big deal, you have to use Pwnagetool/Winpwn to unlock it.
