    Turn off your iPhone by holding the "Sleep/Wake" button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there's no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it's turned off, press and hold the "Home" button and plug the iPhone into your Mac or PC. Keep holding the "Home" button until you see a yellow triangle and text which says "Please Connect to iTunes". New iPhones will show a dock cable next to the iTunes icon. You can now release the button.

    Open iTunes (if it's not already open) and you will be told that "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode". Click "OK" and you will be taken to the iPhone pane. Click restore and you're done. Depending on the extent of your iPhone's ills, it may take some time to do a full restore. Once you're done, however, you should again have a perfectly working iPhone.

Just got iphone back it says its diabled but for 23,685,670 minutes?


How to fix it if your iPhone is disabled?
If your iPhone is disabled and has to be connected to iTunes, you can connect it to an authorized computer, and the Enter Passcode window will show again. If you insert the right passcode this time, your iPhone will be all right again.
If you forget the passcode completely, I'm afraid that the only way to make it back to work is to reinstall.


Note, that the iPhone will erase itself after ten incorrect password attempts in a row. You can turn this off under Settings > General > Passcode Lock.
6 attempts: 1 minute
7 attempts: 5 minutes
8 attempts: 15 minutes
9 attempts: 1 hour
10 attempts: Erase data. If that option is off it will require connecting to iTunes to unlock.

Iphone is diabled and cant login in


It seems that you've incorrectly entered the pass code too many times. The screen should tell you how long you have to wait to try again. If you don't recall your passcode then connect your phone to your computer, start iTunes, and choose "restore".

I just bought an unlocked iphone yesterday it was okay but i accidentally restore it, and now it does not recognize the sim card how can i use it again?


You will need to jailbreak your phone and unlock it again.

restore your phone to 1.1.3
download ZiPhone (http://www.ziphone.org/)
run ziphone -j
(check for options to unlock your phone)
If you don't have options there, you can install "anysim" from the "installer" app that will appear on any jailbroken iphone
