i have had the problem, that my 1.0.2 iPhone closes the SMS application after i opened it - so i was not able to read or write any SMS. i tried to fix the problem with cpopying a new SMS application. after doing this the SMS and the PHONE button were deleted from the iPhone. Nothing was working from this point on.

So i tried to recover the 1.0.2 firmware. But iTunes only gave me a "Error 2003" or "Error 9". An the iPhone is still saying "Please Connect to iTunes". iTunes even can't recover the iPhone with the new 1.1.1 firmware.

Is there anything i could do or ist the iPhone dead for ever?
