Hello Experts,

I have recently bought a used iPhone 4 with connect to iTunes screen (Recovery mode). The seller was unable to get out of recovery and wanted to sell it, so I bought it.

I was able to restore iOS 5.1.1 by downgrade process and then I got iTunes error (-1).

Then I used redsn0w to jailbreak, and guess what, I have the phone working.

At the time of activation in iTunes, I got error "There is some problem in your iPhone" please contact neatest Apple Care.. blah blah

Then I hactivated my iPhone using redsn0w, then I saw all iPhone icons :)

The question is, when I looked into Baseband in About, I found that I have baseband 04.12,01

Yes the second dot is replaced by a comma.

So, is that the reason I am getting error (-1) while restoring? Are there any hardware malfunctions?

btw, the front camera is also not working.

Having a comma in baseband number is normal? does anybody have that? If not then how can I get rid of this? Is this the reason I am getting error "There is some problem in your iPhone" in activation process?

Thanks in advance, please experts help me get out of this, this is a factory unlocked iPhone and I want to use it as a phone not iPod.

p.s. About is screen is attached

Is there a chance that your current langauge setting has something to do with it? Would you be willing to switch to US English, view the about screen, then return to your langauge?

So the phone is activated and working but not recognizing your SIM? Check your unlock status here by inputting the IMEI number. If it doesn't say unlocked, buy an unlock on eBay for $5.
