    Default Going to Apple Store
    So im going to the apple store so they can fix my iPhone...Well it was unlocked for T-Mobile and jailbroken. I restored so hopefully they wont find out. I put the AT&T Sim card back in. My iPhone is refurbished so it could work! So what does everyone think?

    Did you revirginize or just restore? I'd recommend you revirginize as a plain restore won't remove the unlock. Also, in my experience they won't do any repair without an active ATT account.

    How do i revirginize? And if it doesnt work ill just send it to apple cause they sent me a box to send it to them

    I just went through this - first off no matter what they tell you, it is not required to have an active att acount. If you get a good guy he will help you if you get a jag you are screwed. So do not back down.

    you could also buy an at&t prepaid sim and bring it in with that.

    if you 100% can not get it back to factory specs there is another solution. I do not recomend this as it will 100% destroy your phone and they will not be able to power it on or anything so they will have to replace it. With the phone on take rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and "clean" the bottom port. It will fry the phone to where is can not be turned on. so no "repair" just a replace

    The new Ziphone unlock fixs the Gray Wi-Fi, There must be something you can download to fix that without going to AT&T

    dude, just activate a pre paid sim, and have someone else go in. i suggest killing the phone so it doesnt even turn on (after you activate the pre paid sim)

    @ farrizx

    you seem to not understand the situation. apple won't fix it for you without a valid at&t account. you should have gone into the store with the iphone activated with the prepaid sim. of course at&t says it doesn't work with the prepaid sim as it wants/needs you to sign up for their iphone plan and guess what? it does. any unlocked/activated iphone will work with any gsm carrier.

    by sending it to apple they most likely won't fix it for you either

    I called apple they infact said to take the sim card out of the phone, in the box it comes with a paperclip and says take the Sim card out before sending the phone. So my only problem is do i have to do anything to the phone before i send it so they cant tell that it was unlocked, all i did was restore it a few times. Do i do anything else?

    Also im not going to go to the apple store, with the phone unlocked, then they wouldnt help me at all and just void the warrenty!

    tried it and didnt work, i tried every way exept the ZiPhone way cause i heard it wasent good. I even tried the Dev Teams way about 3 times and it said they were set to backup or what ever, and it still isnt working.

    Why don't you just restore instead of sending it to apple? It seems more of a hassle.

    I've already directed him to the swifi fix in two different threads started by him but he seems to want to go to the last resort

    I tried the swifi fix 3 times, all it fixed was the not ringing on sleep mode but wifi is still not working. And i restored about 20 times. So im not wanting to send it to apple i spent all day yesterday tring to fix it, and NOTHING worked. So im forced to the last resort or i end up with no iPhone
