If you are experiencing Activation Problems because your Device has been Hacked / Jailbroken / Modified...
Then... Sorry... But...

    To expand on Rudegar's comment, often, updating a jailbroken or hacked phone will permanently brick the phone.
    If your phone was jailbroken or hacked to unlock it, it is now most likely completely useless.

  • I have just updated my iphone 3gs to the latest operating system but cannot now update my emails even though it tells me I have new emails in my btinternet account. I have tried re-installing the email account onto my iphone but to no avail.

    After some troubleshooting, I decided to order a new battery.  I replaced the battery and was then able to get it to restore, however--after I restore it and it comes time to restart the phone, it gets stuck and doesn't turn on.
    Sorry, your repair ruined the iPhone.
    She does not have apple care and even though she loved this device, she isn't going to buy another iPhone because of all the problems shes had with this one (it's just over a year old).
    After you ruined the iPhone with DIY, Apple won't touch it anymore. You should have asked before all these had happened.
    I'm an android user myself and I love rooting/flashing new ROMS, so if jailbreaking her phone or doing some kind of super-restore with 3rd party programs might help, I'm all for it-
    Yeah, all Android user can think of is Jailbreaking, read this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3743

  • I have just updated my IPhone 3Gs software to newest one, but on the set-up it is saying there isn't a sim in the phone??

    It keeps saying my iphone cannot be activated because there is no sim, which there is??

    I followed the thread and used the link provided to download iTunes version 10.6.3 (again). The same error message keeps coming up, telling me that I do not have it installed. I tried restarting the computer following the install, but it still won´t acknowledge that 10.6.3 is installed. Any other solutions?

  • I just updated my iphone 3GS and my ipod was deleted from my phone and my laptop.  any way to get it back?

    I just updated my iphone 3GS on itunes.  It deleted my ipod on the phone as well as in itunes.  My music is still in the library, but no ipod under devices. Does anyone know what happened and how to get either or both back?

    Did you fail to import your photos before updating?  If so, then they are likely gone.  You can try restoring from backup.  If that fails then they are gone.  You should regularly import photos to your computer, most especially before any update.
    Did you fail to transfer any purchases on iphone ( that were not on your computer) to your computer before updating?  If so, then you will have to redownload:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

  • I have just updated my iPhone and now none of the apps will open!

    I just updated my iPhone 3GS to the most recent update but now when I try and open any apps that I have purchased they only open for a brief moment before returning to the starter screen. I would just restore the factory setting but I don't want to loose all the apps that I have paid for. Anyone got any ideas?

    Thank You paulcb - saved alot of synching headaches!

    Contacts are NOT part of the iTunes backup.  If you had read the User Guide when you got your phone, you would have learned that Apple recommends you synch your contacts for safekeeping to your computer (Outlook, Address Book) or a cloud service.  Using the phone as your only source of your contacts is foolish as the phone can easily be lost, damaged, stolen, or the data become corrupt.
    If you've been using your phone as strongly recommended, your contacts are safe and sound on your computer or cloud service ready to be synched back to your phone.  Of course, you should be backing up your computer regularly as well.
    If you haven't been doing this, your contacts are likely gone.

  • Hello, i really need help. I had just updated my iphone 3gs to 6.0.1, and after I updated, it won't activate.

    Hello, i really need help. I had just updated my iphone 3gs to i.o.s. 6.0.1, and after I updated, it won't activate.I tried it in itunes and it always says " We cannot activate your iphone at this time..." and when I activate using Wi-Fi, it says, "Your iPhone cannot be activated because the activation server is temporarily unavailable." I could swear that my Wi-Fi is fine, and my Itunes is on the latest version.  Is this a bad thing or does this normally occurs? Can I still fix this ? I'm so desperate to use my iphone cause I use it everyday for personal purposes. I sure would appreciate any tip or help . PLSSSS ! Thank you for that wonderful being that can help.

    Do not take it to a third party repair shop - downgrading causes problems and voids your warranty.
    I had to unlock it so that i could really use it as a phone.
    And that is the root of the problem. Unless you had your carrier unlock it, it was hacked and cannot be legitimately activated. Even if you don't care about warranty or problems, downgrading simply will not help an activation issue.

  • Hi, i just updated my iphone 3gs to iso5 now it will not activate ive ''try again'' alot but not getting anywere please help!!

    hi, i just updated my iphone 3gs to iso5 now it will not activate ive pressed ''try again'' alot but not getting anywere please help! i need my phone for work not had it too long and really annoyed lol thanks,

    Sorry, but Apple does not provide a downgrade path for iOS.
    Because downgrading is unsupported by Apple we cannot discuss it on these forums, but you can use Google to find information on how to install an older version of iOS on any device.
    Note that you will void the warranty and loose official support by Apple.
    Feel free to let Apple know at http://www.apple.com/feedback
    Anyway, give a try resetting all your settings:
    Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings

  • I have just updated my iphone 4s with ios7. since then i cant play movies from my netflix app with my av cable bought from the apple store. i get a message saying switch off mirroring on airplay, idont have air play and i dont have an apple tv. can anyone

    I have just updated my iphone 4s with ios7. Since then i cannot play movies from my netflix app using my av cable to tv. which i baught from an apple store. i get a message saying turn off mirroring on airplay. i dont have airplay or an apple TV. what can i do?
    Thanks jonmac22

    Hi Everyone,
    hope this message finds you all in time. The recent Apple TV update 5.1 is terrible. Apple knows it is which is why (thankfully for some relentless user -I have no idea who but I believe it was under threat) they have allowed to sign 5.0.2 again which means you can downgrade your Apple TV 2 and 3 to a 5.0.2 version via iTunes. Who knows how long they will keep the window open but I have downgraded my ATV early this morning. I couldn't post this earlier because I was out all day but I am doing it now.
    Here's how to do it:
    1) Connect your ATV to your computer via a Mini USB (not included with ATV but included with many other electronic devices) - in order for your ATV to appear in iTunes you must FIRST plug the USB cable to your computer and ATV and only THEN plug the power cable.
    2) Download your ipsw restore file from Apple.
    5.0.2 (ATV 2): AppleTV2,1_5.0.2_9B830_Restore.ipsw
    5.0.2 (ATV 3): AppleTV3,1_5.0.2_9B830_Restore.ipsw
    3) In iTunes select yout ATV, hold SHIFT and click on Restore
    4) Find and choose the downloaded IPSW file in the Open Dialog Box and hit Next
    5) As long as Apple still signs that version the Restore process will begin and will take a few minutes to complete.
    Enjoy!

  • I have just won an iphone 3gs in a raffle but when i put in my sim it tells me that it is not supported how can i get the iphone to work

    I have just won an iphone 3gs in a raffle but when i put in my sim it tells me that it is not supported how can i get the iphone to work?

    In that case the procedure assuming it is a PAYG phone is to get an o2 PAYG sim, put £20 on it and then make a few calls making sure you leave £15 on the sim to pay for the unlock. Then there is an online unlock request form on the o2 site just fill this in. It takes between 1-14 days and you get a message from o2 telling you how to complete the official unlock through iTunes.
    I got my o2 unlock in nov 09 so this is not just opinion.
