    Default [1.1.2 OTB Unlocked w/ NextSim] Needs Warranty Repair :(

    OK, I just realized that I have a dead pixel on my beautiful, fully unlocked iPhone. The good news is that Apple does NOT care if the phone has been activated with ATT or not - I read it on their Website and I spoke with customer care - they confirmed. So far so good - however the phone has been jailbreaked and has been used for few hours, so my question is how to make it look like new, never used? I know that I have to restore it via iTunes, but do I need to "virginize" it since I have a hardware (Sim card) unlock and not a software one?


    Another question that I had and I've been wanting to ask is - is there a way to backup my iPhone..? Like maybe capture an image, or at least copy my phonebook contacts that I already had to input manually?


    Thanks!


    p.s. I've heard Apple doesn't have a policy for dead pixels on an iPhone and they replace it w/ a new one in the store. I am hoping this is true...

    I only have few hours until my appointment with the Apple store... Any suggestions will be appreciated since I don't have a lot of time to do a research... it is a 1.1.2 OTB phone, jailbreaked, with Next SIM unlock... do I have to do something else prior returning it to the store, other than connecting it to iTunes and doing a "Restore".

    I remember seeing something about "virginizing", but if I remember right that was only for phones with software unlock..is that right?

    Is there a way/tool/app to archive the contact list prior restoring the phone? Is it possible to make a full backup on the phone?


    Thank you!!!!!!!!!

    Not sure how to do it with iTunes, so I will try the other method you mentioned, thank you! How about the restore part - do have an idea?

    Thanks!

    Success! I returned the phone to Apple and they gave me a brand new, shiny one!!! It went much smoother than I thought - no questions asked, they only asked what is wrong with it


    Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet
