Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

Hi I have just bought a Apple iphone 3G from ebay. The seller forgot to post the USB Lead so will be sending it. When I am charging the phone, and switch on, I get the Apple icon, and then a picture of the USB Lead pointing towards the itunes logo. What do I do next, it won't let me move on from it. Thanks

I think what you have to do is install and then start iTunes on your computer with your iPhone 3g connected. This will allow the phone to be activated and then to be used as normal. If it doesn't work, feel free to ask me again and maybe then I can help you.
Good luck! And please if you find this comment useful rate it / give it thumbs up :)

We bought an Apple iphone on EBay that was stolen. We gave it to the police who will verify this, now what do we do? We paid in full on VISA.


Contact Visa and have them reverse the charge to your account after they back charge the original seller. Nothing to lose with this approach.

Iphone 3gs wont charge shows the battery with small red line but can stay like that for days, bought new charger but still the same...cant get apple sign to come up at all...at first I could and phone...


The battery is probably dead. You can locate a repair service who will replace it for you for under $50, or you could do it yourself, it's not very difficult. You can easily find detailed instructions on the web, and the replacement battery costs about $5 on ebay.I found good instructions here, that will give you an idea of whether you want to undertake the repair yourself.

My girlfreind dropped her iphone 3g into a cup of hot chocolate, her parents went out and bought her a new iphone 4... i put the 3g on the radiator for a day and it started working again. The only problem...


Any exposure to liquid can damage internal components of the device. I wouldn't recommend sending the phone to Apple because it will be an out of Warranty repair of 199, however you could try a third party company that does repairs of iPhones like iFixit.

Apple iphone 3g


I had this happen to me recently - it happened when I used my old ipod USB lead rather than the USB lead that came with the iphone. I tried a lot of things to resolve it, but the only thing that fixed it was using the USB lead that came with the iphone(it should NOT have the squeeze clips on the sides of the phone plug) to plug it into my PC and let itunes perform its sync.

Good luck!

Unlocked iphone


As of right now no iPhones will work on any carriers other than AT&T, unlocked or not. AT&T has exculsive rights to the iPhone until 2012, so unless you put an AT&T sim card in the iPhone it will not transmit.

Plus even if you could get the phone to work on another service providers network, as soon as you plugged the phone in to your computer, iTunes would disable it...

Sorry
