i just bought my iPhone last week but frustrated.. because
1) I can't add a picture on contact name
2)iTunes don't recognize my i phone (no devise found in iPhone panel)
3)can't setting mms
maybe i bought a fake or not the original iPhone?
thank you fury.
yes it charge when i plug in via usb.. it also has only one sim card, a non removable battery and Apple model number.. mine is model no: A1241 FCC ID:BCGA1241 IC ID:579C-A1241 AT the back of my phone.. is't maybe this no is fake tooo?..
That sounds like an iPhone 3G, unless the manufacturer has exactly duplicated the iPhone's casing without regard for actually following FCC procedures, et al...
So, if it charges when it plugs in, but does not show up in iTunes, it could be an iTunes problem, in that the iTunes/iPhone device support drivers aren't properly installed. Try uninstalling iTunes and reinstalling it. You need at least iTunes 8.2 if I recall correctly. Does the device show up in your Windows Device Manager? (Windows Key + R to bring up the run box, then type devmgmt.msc and browse through your device list looking for Apple iPhone)
i install iTunes version 9 the latest one.. i install and uninstalling 2 times.. but same result.. the device show up in windows devics manager as Apple i but appear (the driver for this devices are not installed).. i buy it from a cheap sale shop... they said ori..
The best indicator of whether it is a fake is to use the phone. Is the phone's interface slick and apple-like? Does it have the iTunes and App Store on it? Can you take a screenshot by holding the home button and then pressing the power button then letting go? (It should flash white)
How about going to Settings, then General, then About in order to find out information about the phone? An iPhone will give you basic details about it like which version of the carrier software is installed and how many songs, videos, and apps are on it, and what its serial number is.
the interface slick and Applelike.. but it doesn't have the iTunes and app store on it.. about the screenshot i don't know how.. basic details is different to what you had mention..like company name, usable content, total content, version (I835s_V1_1_5), edit time, bt name, BT address and Phone MAC address.. hmmm.. mine is fake....arghhhhhhhh...
