    open the phone, disconnect the touchscreen, go to apple.com and make a warranty claim beacuse "touch doesn't work" you don't need the receipt or anything, the phone is less than a year old and they know it by the serial number, they will send a new phone and a label for you to send the "broken" phone back.

    ok i sold a factory unlocked iphone to someone in the u.s. who uses tmobile. she said the following in her emails to me.

    sim accepted no service and a lock next to it wants to hook up to itunes but can not

    ya cut my card will not see sim
    so far it does not accept t-mobile iphone is locked or it says pin locked

    now im here in canada shes in the u.s. i dont have the phone in front of me so theres not much i can do. im one of those people that i need to have it in my hand to figure things out.

    she said cut the sim card so i really have no clue what to tell her. unless apple shipped a locked phone theres not much i can do. has anyone else had the same problems? pls let me know as i know if i was in her shows id be frustrated cuz i want to use my new toy

    Yea I have about stroked out on it. I can not get past 30+ or so iGuess's. It stops taking requests. I think I'm about to give up. I have been on this for almost a month and have about exhausted myself. Im about to just release the code on Google code and let someone else have a shot at it. Ill prob make a binary, and release the C code for it. I am sorry guys, I have done my best. I did tell everyone at the beginning that I would release the code.

    Please don't be mad at me lol!

    Im not sure if this has been done...but can we go to an apple store and say that we bought it from an outside source and unable to access the zip and ssn. would we be able to get a replacement or an exchange without an original apple receipt? it should still be under warranty. its quite BS, if this phone is just a brick. i might as well smash it?

    I went to both AT&T and Apple. Apple staff refused to replace the phone as it has not been activated yet and they said it is not defect, so I cannot ask for the replacement.

    you think there are a lot of us out there with this problem? wondering if we can file enough complaints and apple will do something about it like there antenna issue. whats the point of making a product un-useable when its perfectly capable of working. just because we are a third party that bought it, doesnt give them the right to turn us down and not solve the situation.

    well the only next option left wud be jailbreak of next update 4.1 via redsnow, quickpwn or spirit etc if devteam really release a jailbreak without jailbreakme.com
    so if ne one gets info or news regarding jailbreak of iphone 4 via pc please collaborate. hopefully update comes this or next week.
    we should not hope for a solution from apple at all because they are unable to resolve their own affairs and are being accused of releasing a phone with permanent issues.

    Get ready to Update iphone to 4.1. Dev team please release jailbreak asap via pc iOS 4.1 Release Date – Week Beginning September 6

    yes, if dev team releases any of these jailbreaking tools like quickpwn, spirit or redsnow etc than we just have to run the program but if they release something for jailbreakme.com than it will not.

    so hope they release any of those programs.

    I have three of them that cannot be used and the sellers refused to help and since they are sealed, eBay decided the case in the seller's favor. It is really not fair. I paid about US$2400 and the phone4 cannot be used!!!

    Can anyone advise what should I do? I went to AT&T and Apple and all of their personnel just asked me to contact the original owner to get their last 4 digits of #SSN and zip code. I tried, but all of them donít want to release the information.

    you have two options left 1. wait for the next jailbreak tool.
    2. sell those phones on ebay.
    at&t and apple will never resolve this issue. don,t waste your time with them.

    Someone @ Apple also advised me like that but I don't want to pass the problem to others. I just want the sellers to have some responsibility or help from AT&T or Apple. However, it seems that what I can do is just praying that the new jailbreak will be able to get through this problem.

  17. #97
    card from turkish operator Turkcell..

    I dont think its from card cause my card is the same and it works on my io4 without a problem.. also the other card is working fine on my io4.. However both cards dont work on my brothers io4!

    might be a ios problem?

    try restoring that phone to different ios or try a different sim card looks like the phone might be on contract.
    dev team is planning to release web based jailbreak again if they really do our iphone,s might never get activated.
    activation will only be possible if they release bootrom based jailbreak like limera1n or blackra1n

I will try this method this coming Monday when i got a day off work. I will let you guys know, if anyone try this b4 me, please give us some feed back.
    Hey man I was thinking about this, but when I go to them with my phone and they see its on the emergency screen won't they not believe me because its not even activated? What can I say to them to convince them to replace it for me? I do have a friend who could give me his AT&T Sim card after so I'd be set.
