Thread: i need serious help!!

  1. #1
    Default i need serious help!!
    i have an unlocked iphone that was working on tmobiles network. i think i locked the phone again because it says "repair needed cannot make or recieve calls" and when i try to recover itunes wont recognize my iphone. It also says that my sim PIN is locked. Is there anyway i can fix this. If so can u help me!

    Your phone did not "relock".....its possible toast for some reason.

    The only thing you can try, is using Ziphone to put the phone into "DFU" mode. That is, if Ziphone will recognize the phone. After that, restore in Itunes.

    You can also try putting the phone into "recovery" mode and syncing with Itunes.

    If none of that will work, you most likely have a hardware issue and the phone would have to be replaced by Apple. Which they wont do cause its unlocked.

    Depending on what firmware version your using, you could use Ziphone to also jailbreak, unlock and activate the phone.

    You should still be able to "restore" in Itunes, just not activate.

    Just download Ziphone (google it) and install on your computer. After you get the phone restored you should just be able to plug it in and there is a utility in Ziphone called "Do it all". Click that and it will jailbreak, activate and unlock the phone in a couple minutes.

    Its not gonna "unlock" your simcard, it will "unlock" your Iphone so you can use your Tmobile simcard.

    google .net framework, it is written by microsoft, its a free utility you need to install on your computer.

    Its a class library of files.

    Edge WONT work if your running Tmobile. However search the forum there is a way to get Tzones working on the iphone. I use ATT so im not sure on that one.

    The easiest way to do ringtones is download an app called "Iringer" for WinPC, It will allow you to take a song (like an mp3) and cut what you want to use and then it AUTOMATICALLY throws it in Itunes under your "ringtones" section so all you have to do is sync your phone.

    If your talking about installer, you need to be running on WIFI or have some type of data connection to download the apps......have you got that working? Check the Tmobile section to make sure there isnt some settings trick to that either.
