okay, i need you help. greatly.

phone is saying please re-connect to iTunes with that yellow caution sign. so i did and it directed me to reformat or restore it because it is in recovery mode.

but it says unknown error has occurred in the middle of it... it says error 2003 or something or that magnitude.

but let me tell you what led up to the problem.... which might or might not help.

let me start of by saying i still have 1.1.1 or w/e came with the phone on the release date. i hacked it using the installer app that shows up on your phone about a month into having the phone. maybe a little longer, but not much.

anyways back to what happened. this past weekend i let my friend use the internet on it(importatlanta.com is what he was looking at so i know it wasn't porn or anything, lol) and said hey your battery is dying heres your phone back...

well on the way back to my place i see that every three to five minutes my phone gives me the "accesory wont be able to work, would you like to go into airplane mode" prompt. i continue to hit no so i can send and receive calls.

this goes on for a full day then earlier tonight my phone battery dies. we hook it up to a computer and its charging okay. i come back to get it off the computer and realize the time was WAY off. and not only that. the date was december 31st!? (jan 28 today)

rush home and not it wont do anything!?!?

before you ask, no new programs, songs, updates, anything at all were messed with in the past month so it cant be a bad program can it?

well thank you SO much if you read this and can help, or even taking the time and you cant help.

what should i do? take it to Apple? anyone else have this happen?

If you have 1.1.3 now, it can definitely be jailbroken. Just check the iPhone modifications forum.

They'll give you a loaner phone if they can't tell you've hacked the software.
