Thread: iPhone 3G (2.0.2) : no services

  1. #1
    Default iPhone 3G (2.0.2) : no services

    Following the download of the latest firmware, my iPhone went crazy!

    Many problems after and a gazillion of forum posts later, I am about to give up and send this glossy, fingerprints-friendly thing back to Apple...


    Here are the symptoms:

    1. After having been restored to 2.0.2 (DFU mode, yes, I am sure) via iTunes (either using the log or by downloading the .ipsw directly through Internet), I got the following error (roughly translated from french):

    The iPhone "iPhone" cannot be used with iTunes because the information required for activation cannot be obtained from your iPhone.

    Please check that your SIM card is properly inserted in your iPhone and that it is not locked by a PIN code.
    Here, my iPhone is showing the iTunes logo along with a white USB cable. Urgent call slider is also present.

    If I disconnect the phone and plug it back: same error again and again...

    2. QuickPwnGui 120 (also tested with WinPwn 2.5 BETA): I can reach the interface of my iPhone, can use it normally (sound, photo, game, Internet etc…) but cannot catch the network (the official carrier in France is Orange, same as AT&T) even if it shows 1/5 signal strength. Too bad for a phone...

    3. Reset the network preferences directly on the iPhone.

    4. Tested with my sister's SIM card (locked by a PIN). Same than with my own card (unlocked).


    Let me underline that:

    1. I have opened a new Windows XP session especially for the manipulations.

    2. I have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes 27 times.

    3. I have unlocked my SIM card using another phone. When I insert it, the iPhone doesn't ask for a code whereas it does with my sister's.

    4. My SIM card works perfectly with another phone.


    Can anybody help me on this one before I officially declare Apple my number one enemy? Which will probably take less time than joining them over the phone...

    Thanks in advance,
