    if you click on Help and go yo about it will show you what version it is. Most likely it is 9.0 so your going to have to downgrade iTunes to 8.2 or 8.2.1. A simple Google search will get you the info on how to do it if your unsure.

    Downgrade your iTunes to 8.2 or 8.2.1 as I stated and then restore to 3.0 on the phone and re-jailbreak.

    Thats because it's not unlocked. I hope when you said it was downloading to the phone you meant itunes was downloading it. You didn't notice anything on the screen of your phone at that time did you?

    Yeah itunes was downloading it. the screen on the phone was black with nothing on it untill it said on iphone it was extracting then a bar came up on the screen of the phone. is that ok?

    No, sounds to me like you just put 3.1 on your phone, go to the settings and see what it says.

    I cant get into settings cuz the only thing that comes up is the slide for emergency. is there any way of getting to the settings or starting the phone up properly?

    You can take the sim out and it might let you get in then, not sure because its not activated.

  11. #31
    hi kwine. I just took out the sim to find that the phone had already been unlocked because there was a 3 sim card in there. Which is what i wanted to do before i reset everything like an idiot!! if 3.1 is now on the phone which im guessing it is can be unlocked again to enable me to use my sim card? taking the sim out didnt work eithe! thanks,

    3.1 is unlockable at this time. I'm afraid you will have to wait and hope the Developer Team can get it unlocked soon.

  13. #33
    yeah i thought as much. I dont understand why the chap before told me to go ahead and install it if he knew it was going to be 3.1 Frustating! He wasnt making any sense to me saying one thing then another. He said i'll be fine if ive got vista, what did he mean by that? thanks again

    And why did he want to know what itunes it was and saying for me to downgrade to 8.1.1? any ideas?

    That chap was a she. She's very sharp with the iphone, there just must have been a misunderstanding there. The itunes thing, some firmware is only compatible with certain itunes programs and with the newest itunes you never know what kinds of problems it could cause until it was to late.

    Yup, unfortunately by updating the phone to 3.1 it has changed the baseband. why I told you not to update iTunes to 9.0
    More sad news, you may have made it so the phone may not be unlocked again. We can only hope that they come out with a new jailbreak/unlock for this new OS

    Yes and sorry I left you for a while, I am at work and got tied up for a while, dam job.

    What would you say the best solution for the phone is? Would I be able to put an O2 sim in pay as you go or monthly as a selling on point as this is the iphones carrier or network over here? thanks

    Yes, you will be able to use it with an official carrier sim of coarse.

    As you can see here I told you not to update your iTunes to 9.0 3.1 on your phone.

    No worries, Just thought you might of known it was the latest version of itunes when I said I just downloaded it only a couple of hours ago. Not a problem. How much do you think i could get for just the phone on ebay with the state its in and not sure of its origin? Thanks

    I'd say for a 3g phone in good condition you should be able to get at least $300.00 or more on eBay.
