    Returning 4g to Apple Store - Question on Restoring

    Just a follow up - everything went off without a hitch. They swapped the phone and gave me another. Hopefully this one will work better. FYI - the replacement phone has 4.0.1 on it. I was surprised. Thanks!

    Returning 4g to Apple Store - Question on Restoring

    Ahh! I stand corrected! You've saved me the embarrassment of calling it a 4g at the Apple store tomorrow. ;) But whatever you call it, mine hasn't worked worth a damn so far!

    Returning 4g to Apple Store - Question on Restoring

    Thanks. When I go to restore, will iTunes ask me if I want to restore as "new"? Do I then re-activate? I'm sure this will be fairly intuitive once I start, But I like to do homework before I actually begin! Thanks again (both of y'all).

    Returning 4g to Apple Store - Question on Restoring

    Hi. My 4g drops 80% of my calls, so I have an appt to return to Apple store on Saturday. As we speak it is jailbroken with 4.0.1. I have 2 questions: 1) Anything I need to know before I restore? I'm presuming I just restore as usual through iTunes. Should I restore back to 4.0.1 or 4.0.2? 2)...

    Trouble Restoring 3GS from 3.1.2 to 3.1.2

    I'm not even sure what those things are, so I'm going to have to say no. I'm guessing that's not good, huh?

    Trouble Restoring 3GS from 3.1.2 to 3.1.2

    Hi. I have a 3GS that I'm trying to restore. It was jailbroken, and after the restore I'd like to re-jailbreak. It currently has 3.1.2 on it. I downloaded the 3.1.2 firmware. Now when I try to restore (shift/ restore) I get the 3194 restore error. My phone is currently stuck in DFU mode (black...

    iPhone problems?

    Well - I purchased it at a local ATT store. Will an Apple store still replace it if need be?

    iPhone problems?

    Yes, he is also on ATT. And when Apple had my first iPhone I put the SIM in an old Moto L2 that I had. No problems while I was using it, either. Maybe I just need to contact Apple. But they'll want me to send it in for repairs, and if they can't duplicate the problem in one afternoon they...

    iPhone problems?

    Just curious if these are common: 1) I keep losing connection (Edge). I'll have full strength, then it'll go to no bars, then no service, then back to full strength (not necessarily in that order). It only does it ever so often, but it's enough to bother me. Especially when the guy beside me...

    New iPhone - can you tell which version?

    Ok - good to know. I would do a shift - restore back to 1.1.1, right?

    New iPhone - can you tell which version?

    Thank you. I've activated the phone. I think I'm going to use it for a few days or a week before I jailbreak. That way - in case the phone has some sort of issue I'll be able to get it taken care of without any problems from Apple. Then I'll jailbreak. I may give you a shout then, if that's ok...

    New iPhone - can you tell which version?

    I did see those instructions elsewhere. Looked too easy! Should I go ahead and activate the phone first - or does it matter (I'm using ATT). It is 1.1.1 ( it has firmware version 04.01.13_G. That is 1.1.1 correct? )

    New iPhone - can you tell which version?

    I went into a small ATT store. I figured their iPhone turnover would be a little slower than an Apple store. Got lucky. Now I have to figure out how the jailbreak one and unlock the other. There's so many guides out there it gets confusing. I don't want to screw the things up right out of the...

    New iPhone - can you tell which version?

    Is there a way to tell from the box which version (1.1.2, 1.1.1) the iPhone inside will have? I'm buying a new one and I wondered if studying the box (serial number, for example) might tip me off.

    IMEI 0049 Fix?

    I have a bricked phone with the 0049 SIM error. I've tried some online fixes, but they all (that I have read) require the use of WIFI. My phone has WIFI disabled. I actually can't get past the iTunes icon, but using the emergency keypad I can get to my settings - WIFI is greyed out. How else...

    Incorrect SIM error

    Hi. Phone suddenly says "Incorrect SIM. This iPhone must be used with an approved SIM". I've done some searching but I'm still not sure what to do. Here's the details: My iPhone was working fine. I was on a call, ended the call - then tried to use it 2 or 3 minutes later and got this error...

    External speakers still play with earphones?

    External speakers still play with earphones?

    I had the same thing happen. I couldn't figure out why. Finally - I realized my headphones were not going all the way into the jack. The iPhone's phone jack is set rather deep into the hole. I was using 3rd party headphones that wouldn't fit into that small hole. Using the Apple earbuds (which...
