I have an iPhone 3GS that is stuck on activate mode. A few months back, maybe 6 months or so, my 2 year old threw my iPhone into the toilet and it got water damage. It sat untouched since getting water damage. Then I found an ad on kijiji that someone posted about fixing water damage to iPhones. So I had him look at my phone. He was able to get to the activate phone stage and that was it. That is where the phone sits now. I try to activate it but it keeps telling me unable to activate phone because the server or whatever is unavailable at this time. It tells that I can try using iTunes to activate the phone or I may have to call Apple support. Well I have tried using iTunes to activate and it tells me that unable to activate phone. The phone is locked to Rogers. When I put the Rogers SIM card in the phone it won't detect my SIM card. I have no idea what bass band the phone is on. I also have no idea what firmware is on the phone. Please if anyone can help me activate the iPhone 3GS I would really appreciate it.

Run forecast or idetector from : iH8sn0w.com to view your infos. Not being able to activate despite using the official sim might suggest you have a shorted baseband chip.
Run Redsn0w to hactivate it and look at your infos.
