i was using ibricker for the 1st time and i dunno what even happened. i have 1.1.3 and now my phone is repeatedly going to the Apple logo then a ton of numbers and code scroll down the screen for about 15 secs then back to the logo then scrolling. it will only stop if i power and home reset but when i turn it on it does it again. anything i can do to fix this? thanks

let it roll for about 10 minutes and then just relax and do the normal reboot..
power and home button.. get it out of the cycle first and then once you have it out of the reboot cycle you can work it from there.. don't panic!

its too late i was in the midst of restoring it and now i think i have to restore. the only thing is that my phone hasn't been synced since cleared everything out on my computer so now i think all my contacts are out of outlook. do the contacts save to your simcard when add them.

i don't even use that email. the contacts were just in the address book. i synced my old contacts from a nokia to outlook and then to the iPhone. (which its nice that i can do again to have most but i have a bunch of new number that i would like to have) i just synced them with outlook and thats how i would save them. i never even bother with the email. if they address book is in my old files where would i look?

look on this site for a few of the guides and figure out decisivley (sp) what you want to do and then ensure your have the appropriate files and do it. You cant go at it without any direction. you either saved your contcats or you did not. it doesn't matter at this point until your get your iPhone back to a workable state.. make sense?

You should probably stick the phone up your butt and see what happens.
