i usually stop pressing the power button but keep pressing home right after the Apple logo.

I too have been getting the 1601,1602m and 1603 error in different attempts. gave up yesterday after trying on four notebooks in the house.

Thanks a lot , also do you think my phone is bricked? Or just running into errors? I spent a lot on the phone for it not to work.

Am I still able to send my iPhone into Apple If I attempted the jailbreak? And can't fix it/restore it.

Also I was thinking, would the iPhone not be restoring due to not having a sim-card in? - I mean it is factory unlocked, and I don't have an AT&T sim. -

The iPhone 4 is nearly impossible to brick. There are programs and tools out there to force your iPhone/iPod touch into DFU mode...

Okay well then since it cant be bricked that's good. I am only able to get my phone into DFU mode, when I go to restore on my pc, it disconnects from the USB when it says preparing iPhone for recovery.. Should I just try another computer?

Yes. It might be a problem with the drivers. Reboot. If that doesn't work try a different computer. It also might be your device...

You also might want to run iTunes diagnostics with your device connected...

Another thing to try is completely uninstalling iTunes and reinstalling it. If you call Apple Support they will walk you through the process.

Try downloading RecBoot. I know there is a Mac version (not sure about Windows if that's what your using). There are two versions: one that puts the phone into recovery and one that boots it out. Works flawlessly.

well i tried rec-boot, but it never once recognized my device in recovery mode, to kick it out, or put it in.

I am thinking it is comming down to a hardware-problem. - Not being able to jump into recovery ( connect to iTunes screen ) scares me. -

Will i be able to still send this in for a replacement? - it is factory unlocked, so do I just send it to California with a repair slip from Apple site?
