    Default Need help, I think I bricked my iphone

    Wassap,

    so I just bought an iphone yesterday and used the 999-99-9999 social security numnber to get a pay as you go plan.

    Thing is, I also have an old AT&T wireless account that I was using and was planning on using the hacks to get the iphone to activate on that instead. I pretty much followed the instructions on this site: (http://www.hacktheiphone.com/iphone_...ular_sim.html). Everything was working fine, I managed to jailbreak it and all, got to the iphoneinterface part, and onto step 18. Thats when things started to go wrong. I followed the instructions as they were, but before I hit enter, i swap out my my pay as you go plan and replace it with my regular AT&T wireless sim card. I run the program, but all it prints out is a usage guide. I tried and tried again, but thats all it did. I checked to make sure I got the ICID, IMEI codes right, but to no avail.

    So I gave up and put back in the original pay as you go plan. At that point the iphone tells me to connect to itunes to activate it. I figure i'd just restore it and start from scratch. I start up itunes, which gives me an error "The iphone could not be activated because the activation information was invalid. Please try again later".

    Does anyone have a clue as to what I can do to reset it? I've had this phone for a day, so I figure I could just return tomorrow and buy another new one later. But i'd still like to be able to salvage it.

    Thanks

    #8. Can I force iTunes to restore my phone, it doesn't respond to any fixes I've tried?

    Yes you can. First make sure your iPhone is connected to your computer, then hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button for about 25 seconds until you see the yellow triangle with the message connect to iTunes..

    So basically make sure iTunes is not running , hold home/sleep in dock till you see yellow triangle , fire up iTunes , restore.

    You can always go back to the AT&T store and ask for a new sim as well. They give em out for free. Just tell them you want to get a new # or some bs.
