Guys i just bought a I phone 4 from a unknow source. It was working ... Apple iPhone forum
Hello new to this I need HELP THough
Guys i just bought a I phone 4 from a unknow source. It was working i even jail broke it it had the 4.0 software.
I decided to upgrade it to 4.0.1 and jailbreak wouldnt work so i decide to restore the phone when i did it lock the phone to emegency phone only. I dont have the origonal sim for it. Now m worried am up **** creek any suggestion would geatly appreciate it thanks
Hmmmmm, strange. I've never attempted a restore on an iPhone that didn't have a SIM chip, so I honestly wouldn't know if that's what's causing the problem. Have you tried putting it in Recover Mode? Or possibly DFU Mode? I had to do this once (1st gen iPod Touch), but I'm definitely rusty Lol....I know it isn't too hard, give it a shot.
You should be able to get past the "activation screen" (the screen saying connect to iTunes and allowing you only to make emergency calls) by putting in ANY at&t sim (dead or alive) and connecting to iTunes. I haven't tried this on a 4.0 but know it works on 3G's and 3Gs's. Once you are past the activation screen you will have to jailbreak and unlock it again to use another carrier.
