    Default iPhone 3g disabled for 11 YEARS!!!! What to do??!?
    Ok so i am really scared right now, i have iPhone which wont connect to itunes nor charge from computer from the phone. I thought theres dock problem, so i swapped it but it worked fine on different iPhone. Also there was passcode on it. When I put it back with the new dock it says the iPhone disabled for 5895201 minutes and the time counts down so its about 11 years. So what should I do now? Its not the dock problem i figured.


    And I can not restore it

    What phone software are you running (version)? I know this sucks but it's very interesting. I will try to help you if I can.

    Can you put the phone into DFU mode?
    If I helped please head on over and smash the Thanks button.

    That's weird. This is indeed the second time ive seen this here as well. Both times nobody has done anything significant or at all to their phones.

    Wonder what it could be. Follow what iGoof said and let us know.

    Sounds like a hardware problem now. Don't think we can fix that unless you replace the broken parts :/

    Swap your motherboard into another iPhone( a friend etc.) and see if the computer detects it, then DFU & Restore
