The usb cord, dock is in working condition. Also for some reason the usb charger that came with the phone doesnt work. I tried that charger on a Ipod and it working. I had to get a wall charger that is directly connected from outlet to phone and it works. Anyone who knows how to solve the problems please let me know

This iphone was purchased and imported from the US, My Apple iphone 8GB was working perfectly and it accepted my vodafone sim card iv been using the iphone for 7 months now....

I suppose its UNLOCKED though as i pluged in the USB cable from the iphone to my computer to appear in itunes it worked and i was able to transfer music and pictures from the computer to the iphone......

I dont know if its a 3G cause its imported but i can make calls and receive msgs, It works or was working perfectly

2 Days ago i updated my iphone through itunes and then i restored my iphone and after the messege notifying me that the iphone has sucessfully reseted to factory settings and that i have to wait till my iphone resets, i did wait till the iphone restarted and then a messege appeared on itunes saying that the sim card in the iphone is not supported, only supported sim cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate the iphone.......

It sounds like the unlocking screwed up part of the software, if you are using the newest version, there is a problem when unlocking the phone. If you down grade to the prior software version, it may fix the problem, it's difficult to know what people have done to the phones due to the many different methods of unlocking jailbreaking etc, if it were mine I would try to do re install of the prior firmware, if that doesen't work, you may be able to just get a new sim card from your provider. That is more than likely what got messed up

Based on your message it looks like Itunes reupdated the firmware of your Iphone back to the original factory firmware hence it is back to the Locked firmware. When you hit restore in Itunes it will check the Apple website for the correct firmware and load it. You will have to have the phone unlocked again. I would suggest you go to a cellphone repair center and have them unlock the phone again.

You need to open the iphone and reconnect the charger port, its on a flex connector and they pop out for some reason.you just need to reconnect it and you should be able to see the iphone within itunes again.

Sounds like you're at the activation screen, so all you should have to do is insert an activated ATT simcard and connect the phone to iTunes on a computer that is connected to the internet. If you really can't connect to iTunes, there may be a hardware issue. There is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iphone.Once it is open it's as easy to replace parts which are available on Ebay.

I think this phone would need a firmware re-installation. the updating and restoration of the phone may have caused some accidental deletion of file in phone software.

thank you

have you tried to reinstall itunes on your pc? it will be the iphone driver that is missing from your pc if you make a bacup of your itunes files in the itunes folder and then re install the most recent itunes from apple this will re install the driver needed to find the phone through itunes.

Your iPhone is not factory unlocked. This means if you purchased it from the USA you need a deactivated ATT SIM card to get it past the activation or use a program called QuickPWN to Jailbreak + Activate your iPhone

My iphone turned off and wont turn back on. i've tried holding the home button and the button at the top but nothing will work. when i plug it into the charger on the wall the apple symbol appears. then...


1. Connect your iPhone to iTunes.
2. Hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
3. After exactly 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button for 10 seconds or until iTunes pops up a message saying that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. At this point, click OK, then click "Restore" in iTunes.

I have an unlocked iphone 4 but my computer doesn't detect my iphone 4 anymore.


Hi panggalory,
Is your iPhone 4 factory unlocked or jailbroken then unlocked?
Either way, please read the following:
  • Make sure that the USB cable is in good condition
  • Try connecting in different USB ports of your system
  • Reinstall iTunes to the latest version http://apple.com/itunes
  • Try connecting your phone in some other computer

The above solutions should work because I myself have faced this problem and these have worked for me. If it still doesn't work, the please let me know.

Sometimes my Iphone will not charge when i connect it to the wall charger. I just bought my iphone a couple of months ago.


If your iPhone is not charging when you plug it into a wall charger or into you computer's usb port, this is a usb connectivity issue and the connection just needs to be reset. All that needs to be done is plug the iPhone's cable into the phone but don't plug into the computer yet. Hold the phone's select button (the round button with the square) down for about 30 seconds or until the apple appears on the screen. your phone will reload and reset the connection and the computer should recognize the device. Allow the phone to charge for at least 30 minutes before unplugging.
