    Question i have an interesting situation.

    I was one of the many who unlocked the iphone and installed 3rd party apps. I even read the news about bricking my iphone if i updated, and the sad thing is... i went ahead and updated. So now i have a bricked iphone, but i have tried to return it to apple and almost had one bcz the mac guy didnt really understand but someone decided to investigate it further and said i cant help you any more. so i was like wtf. anyways. i have att and i have a new sim card that hasnt been activated yet with the iphone, and im just scared that once we get past this and get things working again i still wont be able to use my phone. or am i wrong?
    Also i tricked the product specialist at apple into sending my phone in for repair, but once they read that my imei is wrong they are going to trash it or send it back. does anyone know what i can do to prepare the phone to look as completely unhacked as possible? is there a way to change my imei back, or would i be better off taking the phone apart and breaking something and say they did it during shipping lol. Also they are sending me a service iphone just for the time being, in which im going to activate this sim card and try a few more things before i send the phone back to them. any suggestions, answers, experiences will be greatly appriciated guys.

    First, you're going to get flamed for this comment and you won't get the advice you're looking for. I'd edit the post, if I were you.

    Second, follow the instructions posted all over this forum for downgrading back to 1.02. Then at least you'll have all functions except phone. Soon enough, someone will figure out an easy way to reflash the old baseband and you'll be back in business.

    Yeah thanks for the help.
    that quote was more towards a joking manner.
    but anyways... even if i dont have an activated sim with the iphone, will i be able to use the phone functions... like something just tells me once the bb gets fixed im still not going to be able to use the phone.
    btw i did do the downgrade, actually i followed the forum post when it was just satrting about the guy every1 boo'd and called a liar and infact after trying his method it actually worked... so yeah.

    I'm sorry, but there is no level of intelligence lower than thinking that you could somehow make Apple accept the phone under warranty repair when you already sent it in and it got bounced because they found out it was hacked. Do you not realize that they have these things called computer databases now? Someone at Apple marked your phones serial number as no longer being under warranty, which means you're screwed as far as repair goes. But even more perplexing is how you said you knew fully about all the problems people were having with 1.1.1, but you effing updated anyway and now you expect the forum to work miracles for you.

    I am really, really, really getting sick of the people who try to hack their iPhones despite an obvious lack of IQ points. Guess what? You are the exact kind of person that Apple is talking about when they say that iPhone hacking destroys their company image. You punch a few buttons on your computer, all proud of yourself for thinking you're a hacker, and 5 seconds later, you're on this forum wasting all of our time with your stupidity.

    Is it so fucking hard to understand? DON'T UPDATE TO 1.1.1 IF YOU UNLOCKED YOUR PHONE!!!

    A little late for you, I guess.

    pretty spiffy of you to assume i sent it in and got rejected or w/e u want to call it...
    i belive i said that they are sending me a service phone out so they can repair mine... they dont think its hacked... and reguardless i know they are going to see that it was and send it back, i was just curious to see if there was anything i can do to prep it b4 to make things easier for me, and maybe, just maybe give me a chance of getting a new 1 by apple... what a fucking asshole... you know what, fuck you. i hope you eat a pipebomb.

    I can tell you how to send it to them and have it replaced. I did it a few times with my ipod and think the trick will work with the iphone. just PM me if you want to know how to do it.
    BUT please be aware your phone will be fried and the onlything that can be done is have apple replace it for you.
    Cant be fixed or repaired. so if you live outside the states then dont bother

    Dude, I don't know what they told you before they knew it was hacked, but once they find out it is, you will be dropped quicker then you could even imagine. READ: If at any point during the whole process, they even casually mentioned that they thought your phone was hacked, they will not be repairing your phone, period.

    I commend you for not only being dumb enough to update to 1.1.1 when it was publicly known that it bricked unlocked iPhones, but for then sending it in expecting them to repair it when the IMEI was invalid. You have just blacklisted your phone, and you could have just used the damned search function on this forum to find the fix for it in the first place. That's what we call a *facepalm*, whether you want to admit it or not.

    ...and what kind of retard would eat a pipebomb? Great comeback, got any more?

    I wouldnt mess with the service phone if i was you. If you screw that up - they will probably charge you. If you cant use it without hacking it - then leave it alone till you get yours back or a new one. Its bad enough you updated to 1.1.1 when you should have known better, but to mess with the "courtesy" phone is just stupid.

    Oh and the reason I left other iphone forums was because of all the immature lame ass comments. If you can't be nice, then don't post at all, but please just grow up people. I dont want to see hackint0sh go the same way as the other forums. I hope I am right in thinking people here are a bit more mature.

    haha i like the idea of hacking the service phone, but i think they will charge you for it. let us know what they did with your phone you´ve sent in. hopefully they just reset the bsaeband and you get a 1.1.1. phone back.
