    such a pointless response, not everyone is a someone who goes round stealing phones.. My uncle genuinly just came back from the usa and told me he had found a phone and asked me if i could get it working.I came on here for some advice and had a pointless response.

    Okay what I've done is this: Connect the iPhone to the computer and and close iTunes when it pops up. After it's connected POP in your SIM. Now after it's inside power off your iPhone. After it's off, put it in DFU Mode. Re-open iTunes and restore. After it's all dine iTunes will activate the iPhone with the SIM that is inside it at the time. (This the way youndo it if you're in AT&T. If you're in another carrier tell me now.

    Okay. I've heard that if you do the process previously mentioned it could work. I'm looking at Hacktivations right now. Just try what i told you and report back when you're done. Cheers.

    Quick: Windows Or Mac?

    Does this fit your 3Gs? If not, then just try the DFU thing I told you about and cross your fingers.

    iPhone 3GS
    The Pwnage Tool 4.01 Hacktivation only works on previously jailbroken iPhone 3GS with older bootrom which have NOT used the Spirit iPhone Jailbreak. If you fit…then you would be able to create ipsw with PwnageTool 4.0 and restore with jailbroken recovery mode.

    Ok, ill have to wait to get the simcard that he wants to put in there first.

    Do you have msn i can contant you on if so please pm me your address or skype thanks.

    Sn0wbreeze Is PwnageTool for Windows just incase you isn't already know. So the above still applies

    You cant unlock an iPhone unless it's jailbroken. And you can't jailbreak the iPhone with it being stuck in the emergency call screen. You could use Sn0wbreeze right now or wait for a Spirit Version that supports locked phones and iOS 4. Sorry bro I tried my hardest. I'll promise if I see anything I'll PM you or just post here again. Remember try the DFU restore process I posted earlier

    Your phone has to be already jailbroken to be able to use a custom firmware.
    Or.... Your uncle could return the phone to the authorities. Isn't that what you would hope someone would do if they found your phone???...

    Just turn it in to the police dip. It's just like finding a bag of money, it's stealing if you don't turn it in. Keep telling yourself that it isn't stealing doesn't change the fact that it is.

    Simtech, Hacktivations allow iPhones to activate without a SIM or with a Foreign SIM
    Right? Do you already have to be jailbroken to hacktivate? If yes then I'm sorry but the Road ends here and the iPhone 3Gs is useless Luke. Sorry. Again ill contact you if I see anything.
