Hi, I have an Iphone 3g that is "Not" jailbroken, nor do I want it to be jailbroken. However, I had been having problems with it shuting down and not starting again. So, I tried to update and restore only to get an "error" 1015.
It is now stuck on "connect to itunes"
Any help would be great as this is a factory unlocked phone

Apple in no way blocks devices.
Carriers can blacklist devices from their network.  If that is what has occurred, only the carrier can remove the blacklist.  This should have nothing to do with your ability to activate the device and use it as an iPod.

  • I have received my first mac from a designer friend who passed away recently. He had been having problems with crashing in Lion. His friend upgraded to Mountain Lion before his mac pro laptop, mid 2010, was sent to me. It has many problems and crashes

    After sorting the material of my friends on the drive and creating a new user, I realized that the system was unusable with 30 or 40 crashes a day. I am a photoshop user and my friend had installed cs2 and upgraded to cs5. Actually everything was crashing and he had had the problems in Lion and they did not go away in Mountain Lion.
    So my sense is the next best step is to uninstall and reinstall the operating system....but I'm entirely new to Mac though I quite good at problem solving on PC.  I have been messing around trying to get Mac up for over a week now so am learning quickly but feel uncertain about the steps in installation and don't want to mess things further.
    I have found this
    https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3351
    which seems useful.
    I'm backing everything now to a usb drive, I have one copy in timemachine, but I need a clean install so I'm backing things manually as it's not so complicated my being a new user.
    I have the original discs of Snow Leopard and a dmg file of Mountain Lion that were installed on this computer.
    I hope I can find my friends Adobe id and password.....he does have a list of passwords, how can I check if they are correct.
    Do I need to install Snow leopard from the original disks first and then update and then upgrade to Mountain Lion?
    He upgraded first to Lion but I can't find that program to install, do I need it to get to Mountain Lion?
    I don't have boot disks, does that matter?
    What can I do about CS5 in a restore? I don't mind loosing other programs so much as this one.....I haven't seen the upgrades and only have CS2. What happens to all your programs...I guess they are just lost?
    I haven't used mail, so I'm not worried about that.
    Hope I can get some support with the process, any support will be valued that is at all related. Thank you

    I am looking through this material, it's great. I'm wondering though, does command r work in #8 if my original disks where Snow Leopard?
    Yes, when the operating system was upgraded to 10.7 then to 10.8, it 10.6 was replaced so those 10.6 disks are only good now for completely erasing the entire drive and reverting the machine back to 10.6
    10.7 and 10.8 has a Recovery HD partiton on the boot drive.
    https://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718
    I have a mountain lion dmg file that was used to upgrade from Lion, would double clicking on this equal the same thing as reinstalling mountain lion over itself?
    I wouldn't use this, as Apple is now changing things, so you need to reinstall 10.8 via the Recovery HD
    I would prefer to keep CS5 photoshop
    Not going to happen, if it's working now good for you. But according to Roaring Apps it's not working for 10.8. and it needs to be upgraded to CS6
    If you revert the machine to 10.6 or 10.7, your going to erase CS5 and everything else.
    Doing #20 would be a bit beyond me and I don't know another mac user so that I can work from their mac.
    Why do you need another Mac users machine?
    Print out the instructions.
    Here is some more about secure erasing for a new owner
    How do I securely delete data from the machine?
    Installing OS X 10.8 again
    https://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718
    Does the reinstall have to go from Snow Leopard which was the base install, to lion then to mountain lion,
    No, you erase and install 10.8
    When Apple upgrades 10.6 to 10.7 then to 10.8, it's a complete operating system replacement, it's called a upgrade because it's still OS X but leaves all your files and most programs intact, none of the older operating system version remains.
    Just like if you would upgrade Vista to Windows 7, or Windows 7 to Windows 7 Pro.
    Can I install the mountain lion upgrade over a freshly installed Snow Leopard?
    Yes, but it requires erasing the entire drive (including 10.8 Recovery HD) from the 10.6 disks, then installing 10.6, then Software Updating to 10.6.8, then buying 10.8 from the AppStore, then downloading it and installing it, then the machine will be 10.8
    Or you can use the Recovery HD and just erase the Macintosh HD parittion then reinstall 10.8 that way for free.
    How to reinstall just OS X or erase/install OS X
    https://support.apple.com/kb/HT4718
    See what is confusing you is there is a hidden Recovery HD partition on the boot drive, it can do all the things like a OS X install disk can do, erase the Macintosh HD partiton (where OS X, programs and files are) and install a new copy of OSX from Apple's servers so it reboots to a brand new machine again (no Cs5 though)
    Instead of a boot disk, there is a two bootable partitions on the boot drive, one is Recovery HD and the other is Macintosh HD which boots into OS X.
    SO your command r booting the operating system in Recovery HD to erase the other partition and reinstall OS X into from Apple's servers, got it.? 
    Your going to need your AppleID and password to reinstall OS X 10.8, all part of the new world order.

    What you need to do is boot into Safe Mode. Then delete the VGA Drivers.
    After that boot normally and install the latest nVidia ForceWare Drivers
    Take Care,

    Has anyone been having problems with camera, safari etc. crashing on iOS 5.0.1 because I have been having the problem as well as my brother I have the iPhone 4. If anyone else having same issue comment below

    Then the next step would be a restore as new to rule out corruption in the backup.

  • Since upgrade to ios6 l have been having problem with wifi connection and connecting to App Store and iTunes store

    Q since upgrade to iOS6 l have been having problem with wifi connection and getting into App Store and itunes

    Saw this on another post.
    Applecare Senior Advisor Txx Bxxx (I have his contact info in an email he just sent) just confirmed with me that the problem people are having with the App Store not loading is an apple issue with there servers, ITS NOT YOUR IPAD so don't go restoring it!   It's not happening to everyone however but they are looking into it, its really hit or miss.

    Try this first - Reset the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    This works for some users. Not sure why.
    Go to Settings>General>Date and Time> Set Automatically>Off. Set the date ahead by about a year.Then see if you can connect to the store.

  • I have been having problems with my iPod touch and my WRT...

    I have been having problems with my iPod touch and my WRT54G router. I am so frustrated right now because after following the various steps mentioned in one of these threads, following Earthlink's prompts, and speaking with Apple, my iPod touch will still not work. It is connected to the internet but will not download the pages. It is quite frustrating. I have changed from WPA to WEP, I switched the 4th Generated key to the 1st. I've disabled this, enabled that. I've done just about everything. I updated the firmware. I made the switch from a partial bridge to a full bridge. Still nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any other suggestions? The one thing I have not done is enter the Apple code into the iPod which searches for website...-- I cannot access the internet with my iPod so this web address does not work. If anyone has been successful, will you please give me step by step instructions? Yesterday I was on the phone with Linksys for about an hour. Before that with Apple for about an hour and before that with Earthlink. How it is that I can walk into a Bread Co. or Apple Store and immediately connect to the internet with my iPod but I can't in my own house?? Everyone seems to think it is someone else's problem so I've gone around and around. Not one of the Linksys support personnel suggested I look here on this community forum. I had to pay the $9 fee to have advanced Linksys help but still my iPod does not work and when I called back, the man I spoke with seemed to think the case was closed because my PC, Laptop, and iPod are connected to the internet -- the iPod just won't download the webpages or get mail. My iPod's IP address begins with 192. I would appreciate any help on this matter
    Message Edited by AlliW on 10-02-2008 02:06 PM

    I had the same issues with my iPod touch & iPhone. It's a known issue with the touch & Linksys G routers. Go into settings on the touch & do the following.
    1. Settings - wifi - linksys
    2. Erase your DNS settings & input same numbers as in router
    Settings.
    3. Http proxy should be
    in off position.
    4. Close out & open safari you should now have a wireless
    connection.

    I have just been having problems with my Canon MP250 printer and decided to uninstall and re-install the printer and everytime I try to re-install the printer trough preferences and all I keep getting was a message saying "preparing to queue"...... I then decided to try and reload the Canon printer drivers and for some silly reason I deleted the existing Canon printer drive. Now I cannot load them from the CD provided with the printer or from downloads through the Apple store. If anyone out there could help me I would be greatly appreciated......

    These Canon printer/scanner drivers from Apple - http://support.apple.com/kb/DL899 - should work. The MP250 is listed on the support page. Try downloading and installing them.

  • Have you been having problems with ipod nano 3rd gen?

    Have you been having problems with your ipod nano 3rd gen? got a windows xp computer? is your pc not recognizing it? I think i may have the solution. After 2 2 hour calls to apple tech support they were stumped. we reset it again and again, reinstalled itunes again and again. and they had no solution for me. I went to my device managerand there was a device called (apple Ipod USB driver) with a yellow exclamation point. I tried updating driver but to no avail. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling and nothing. But then I had an epiphany. I went to the device manager right clicked the apple ipod usb device clicked properties then update driver. Hardware wizard went up and I chose not to install automatically. and i chose to install driver manually. and then I installed a generic usb mass storage driver in its place and presto!!! it worked! it was instantly recognized by itunes and it took me to the registration page. I did what the apple support team wasn't able to do for 4 hours. I wonder if they're accepting applications... Anyway i hope this helps anyone out there cause i know i went through a lot of stress.

    the driver is just a regular usb mass storage driver. it's in your computer. it's just a matter of installing it manually where it saya to include the location of the driver click browse and choose c:\windows\system32

    Sorry for the late reply. My email firewall has become a little over zealous & sent a lot of my emails straight to my junk email folder, so I have only just now discovered your reply in my junk mail folder.
    The only "don't open files exceeding xxx megabytes" instruction I can find in my Prefs, is in the Bridge Prefs for Thumbnails, & mine is set at 1000mb. The biggest files I handle are bigger than 200mb so I should be able to open a few, not just one.
    However, this doesn't explain why I can open a psd format file of 180mb, close it, but then can't open a RAW format file of only 26mb immediately after.
    I can open the RAW file only if I restart my computer - very annoying!
    However, thanks for the advice about the video card & memory.
    So, I'm still stuck as to what the issue is.

  • I've been having problems with the battery draining within half an hour of it being fully chargers. I have an iPhone 5c and haven't had it for long. How do I get the troubleshoot email to check it out? iPhone 5c

    I have been having issues with my battery capacity. The battery will drain within half an hour with it being fully charged when the battery normally lasts me all day. I haven't had the phone that long so it most definitely shouldn't be happening. I went to my service provider about the problem and he said to go into the apple website, click "support" and then "battery capacity issues" to which you then type in your email to troubleshoot the problem on your phones however, I cannot find this. Someone help me out!

    He may have been referring to: https://www.apple.com/support/contact/
