Question about Phones

Hi!!! I have a very BIG problem with my iphone!!!!:(((( I have had it for 3 months and I have unlocked and jailbroken it. I have downloaded many applications and everything was going fine until this week. On Sunday it froze while I was downloading an application. I've reset it using the sleep and wake button and when I switched it on I had 'ants' (an application I've downloaded) walking on my screen and filling it with ants, and I had also zebra stripes and the apple logo was also there. After some time I restarted it and it was fine. Then yesterday I had the same problem but it won't come back to normal!!:(( And I tried to restore it but there was an error msg. Now itunes won't even recognize my sim card. I really worried!!!!:((((( Can't you help me please?????? Best Regards Nicholas

    What do you mean by 2.0?

    Are you asking if whether the firmware is a 2.0?

    I think I am using the 1.1.4

    I would just try doing a "master reset" which should be in the phone options somewhere. You may lose what you've downloaded, but you'll get your phone back.

    How to lock my pictures


    Once you have jailbroken your iPhone. You'll got a Cydia icon on your SpringBoard.
    1. Launch the Cydia.
    2. Go to Search Tab and search for Lock Down and tap it.
    3. Tap Install button at Top-Right and then Confirm button at Top-Right to begin installation.
    4. After completion, go back to Springboard where you'll find a brand new icon i.e. LockDown.
    lock-iphone-applications-lockdown-01-165x240.jpglock-iphone-applications-lockdown-02-165x240.jpglock-iphone-applications-lockdown-03-165x240.jpg
    lock-iphone-applications-lockdown-04-165x240.jpglock-iphone-applications-lockdown-05-165x240.jpg
    How to use LockDown
    • When you will run the Lockdown application for the first time, you will be asked to setup a Safety Code and a Password. This password will be used to unlock any locked application and to open Lockdown itself. Safety code is useful in case you forget your LockDown password.
    • Once you have setup the Password and safety code, you will see all your iPhone applications listed on next screen.
    • Select any application you want to lock, a Lock button will appear. By tapping that button your selected application will be locked and a little lock icon will appear next to that locked application.
    • Now if you close LockDown App and try to open you locked application (Mail app in this example), you will be prompted to enter the password to open it. Use your Lockdown password to open that App.
    (Once you open the app, use it and when you close the app it will be automatically locked again. So no need to re-lock it in LockDown.)
    lock-iphone-applications-lockdown-1-165x240.jpglock-iphone-applications-lockdown-15-165x240.jpglock-iphone-applications-lockdown-06-165x240.jpg

    Lets check other options in Lock Down.
    • Tap LockDown to launch it. This time you'll be asked to input the password to open LockDown. Do it.
    • Tapping any locked application in LockDown will prompt you if you want to Unlock it. Pressing the Unlock button will perform the unlock that App.
    • Locked Applications button at the top right quickly shows all the locked application only rather scrolling through all applications to locate locked ones.
    • Under Settings tab at Bottom, following options are available:Locking Options
      • Lock All Applications
      • Unlock All Applications
      • Lock This Application (ON/OFF)
      Password Management
      • Change Saftey Word
      • Change Password
      • Forgot Password
      Other Settings
      • Lockdown Dylib (If you turn it OFF, even if you open a locked application it will not prompt for password. So, it's helpful when you are using your iPhone by yourself. See the details in screenshot. )
      • Lock Icon Moving (When turned ON it do NOT let anyone to move any icon to preserve your arrangement of icons.)
      • Lock App Deletion (When turned ON it do NOT let anyone to delete any application without your permission.)
      • Enable Launch Button (When turned ON, Lockdown will show a launch button when you open a locked application and input password.)

    I am using this great application since the day it's supported with iPhone OS 3.0. It's working like a charm and will keep it installed because of its usefulness and surely recommend it.

    Plug the iphone into your computer and restore the phone using itunes. If the computer won't recognize the phone put it in DFU mode by doing the following.
    1. Hold the lock/unlock button for 10 seconds. 2. Continue holding the lock/unlock button and also hold the home button for 10 seconds. 3. Release the lock/unlock button and continue holding the home button for 10 seconds.
    After the connect to itunes screen appears on the phone, plug it in and attempt to restore again.

    My iphone won't sync with itunes. it did at first but now keeps coming up with an error I have an original iphone, never been jailbroken or any such thing, and can not currently get it to sync with itunes...


    Recharge
    Make sure iPhone is charged. Connect to a USB port and look for the lightning bolt battery icon in the upper right. If you don't see this icon, then iPhone is not charging. The battery will charge to 80% in an hour.
    Note: If you put your computer into sleep mode while iPhone is connected via USB, iPhone may not charge.


    This screen means to keep iPhone connected so it continues charging. Please note:
    If iPhone is not sufficiently charged it will not show up in iTunes
    Use a high-power USB port such as the one on your computer, or use your iPhone AC adapter.
    Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.
    Make sure you are using USB to charge. Accessories that use FireWire to charge are not supported with iPhone.
    If you see the red part of the battery image flash three times and then the screen goes black, it means that iPhone is not receiving power to charge.

    If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
    Retry with a different USB port.
    Note:
    Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.

    If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
    Restart

    Try restarting iPhone. To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Does iPhone appear frozen or stuck? Try pressing and holding the Home button for at least 6 seconds to close a frozen application. Then try restarting iPhone again.

    Note: If that doesn't work, try restarting your computer.
    If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
    Reinstall

    Reinstall iTunes 7.7 or later.
    Get the latest version of iTunes (7.3 or later) from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

    Thanks.

    Unlock pin number


    The first free iPhone unlock software has been sold and successfully installed today by Mr Paul Taylor, from the UK. Giz was there as an exclusive witness, but when things went very wrong—and the process failed repeatedly giving a "baseband communication error"— I jumped in to help. After some troubleshooting we identified the problem—and I am afraid that it could mean that the software unlock may not work with all SIM configurations. [Updated Sept. 11, 02:52AM EST: iPhone Sim Free has issued an application update to fix the problem we discovered during unlocking. Jump to see their statement.] Nobody has told you this yet, but as I discovered, not everyone would be able to apply the iPhone Sim Free patch to unlock the iPhone. The key seems to be in the SIM card's PIN. If you can disable it, everything seems okay to go. But if you can't, it looks like you should have to forget about the iPhone Sim Free software for now. [UPDATED BELOW]
    As I was able to see today, the customer experience to unlock an iPhone is not pretty. In fact, it could be absolutely awful because most final users don't know anything about SSH, SFTP or the Terminal. If you already have your iPhone jailbreaked using a software like iFuntastic for Mac (current version doesn't work with iTunes 7.4) or iBrickr for Windows, installing the application will be a breeze: just drag and drop it inside the Applications folder inside your iPhone.
    However, starting at 3:25 p.m. EDT I watched as Sasha Vatoff, from the Australian iPhone Sim Free reseller, tried to guide customers Paul Taylor and Philipp Meier through the whole installation process. They were going to be the first customers ever to unlock the iPhone. No journalists, just normal consumers. So early in the game, I had to jump in to help them install the software because iFuntastic wouldn't work with Phil's iTunes 7.4 and Paul's iFuntastic didn't work at all. That required going through installing SSH and moving the iPhone Sim Free app using Secure FTP.
    All looked okay, but when the application was finally in the iPhone, both Paul and Phil tried the unlock and it failed. "Baseband communication error," the iPhone spat everytime. They restored their iPhones a couple of times because it simply didn't work, and the thin iPhone Sim Free "documentation" recommended a full iTunes restore after a baseband communication error.
    Around 7 p.m. EDT the situation was absolutely desperate. Sasha, the reseller, was lost at this point. The poor guy didn't know what to do next, and the iPhone Sim Free people told him they "weren't going to publish further information." Basically, they said they released the software but the "support" was the reseller's responsibility, which makes sense. However, Sasha was expecting more support from them. Instead, all he got was a call from a VoIP line with terrible sound, every two words being lost in cyberspace.
    Without knowing what to do, he kept asking me for opinions. What to do? Should I send the program to my customers right away and let them figure it out? People were getting nervous. My only answer was to try it: "Send it to your clients and see if anyone has more luck that these two."
    Still, I was refusing to believe that it didn't work so I asked him if he wanted me to try it.
    It worked.
    After a few minutes, I had my iPhone unlocked. I couldn't understand why. Jason didn't have any problems, just like me. There had to be something else. And then, as if The Steve appeared from the heavens to illuminate me: Boom! There it was, a revelation: I asked Jason if he had a PIN when he tried the unlock. "No, I don't think I had" he said.
    It was a good shot:
    MSN conversation with Paul and Sasha [Timestamps are in Madrid GMT+1 time, so this starts at 7:40:22 PM EST] Jesus says: (1:40:22 AM)
    dude
    Paul (r) says: (1:51:09 AM)
    IT ******* WORKED

    Jesus says: (1:51:14 AM)
    yep
    After a few words of thanks from Paul and Sasha—the first ecstatic about his newly unlocked iPhone and the latter obviously breathing again after almost collapsing from a heart attack—Paul did a test call and everything was fine. The photo above is his phone, working on the Virgin network in the UK.
    So as you can see, the secret is pretty easy: before unlocking the iPhone, you must disable the PIN in the SIM card using another phone.
    The problem now is that some SIM cards don't have the option to disable the PIN security. This was the case of Phil, whose German SIM's security can't be disabled. Now he has to wait for an update that may come sooner or later. Or may not come at all. There may be another solution, but at the time of this writing, we couldn't work out what these may be.
    Right now we still don't know what are the technical problems that this may pose for the iPhone Sim Free people (at the moment of this writing, we still haven't heard from them but we expect to have official word soon).
    Until that fix comes, the iPhone Sim Free software solution works, but only for certain people. Those whose SIM cards can have a "disabled PIN." In other words: For now, the only universal solutions are still the TurboSIM solution, which doesn't break your warranty or the hardware unlock.
    [UPDATE: If you were thinking about participating in our iPhone Sim Free license give-away contest, make sure to check to see if your SIM card doesn't have obligatory PIN security.]
    [Updated Sept. 11, 02:52 a.m. EDT: iPod Sim Free has issued an application update to fix the problem we discovered during unlocking. Good to see they react so quickly.]
    iPhone Sim Free Statement It has been brought to our attention mainly through this article [the article you are reading now] that there was a small bug in our code. This bug has now been resolved we will be forwarding the new simfree.app to all our currently registered resellers. All new resellers will automatically receive the updated version. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Jesus Diaz for discovering this bug and reporting it through his site. As well as apologize to the select few who encountered this problem. The bug has been confirmed to be related to whether or not the SIM card is pin locked or not, it has now been resolved. AND OUR SOLUTION IS UNIVERSAL.
    Further to this, we will be updating our simple tutorial, to include the following:
    IMPORTANT !
    PLEASE ENSURE YOUR PHONE IS FULLY CHARGED AND YOUR "Auto-Lock" SETTING (in Settings/General) is set to NEVER for the duration of the unlock process. You may change it back once the application is finished.

    I down loaded a update for iphone and it got locked


    Well one solution could be that you downloaded software on to the phone that was not sanctioned by Apple, therefore when you downloaded the update it locked your phone. Say thank you to Apple for being so kind.
