    Default iphone stuck on charging screen

    Hello all,

    After surfing around the forum, and using search funtion I am unable to find a solution to my problem.

    I will try and keep the story behind this phone short.

    I have a sister inlaw who purchased a iphone for herself and her husband. Husband broke the screen, and rather then have it repaired he simply bought 'el cheapo' phone replacement from a buddy.

    Sister inlaw got p@ssed off at him and gave me the broken phone. I do not think I can take it back to apple (original sim is in another phone?). I know I could fix the screen/digitizer, but the problem is this.

    When I plug the phone in to charge, all I get is a charging screen showing only like 1%. I have tried charging from wall and pc with the same result for both. I am unable to charge the phone enough to even turn it on. Or maybe the phone will not let me power it up without a sim card?

    The phone is a 8g 3g that has never been modified, and when the phone was given to me there was still alittle power left and I was able to turn on, but the phone sat for 2 months not being touched.

    Any ideas on how I can charge this thing?

    Thank you all
    Lee

    regardless of the location of the original sim you can still take it to apple and get help if its not jailbroken or unlocked.. the warrenty may be intact still

    OR

    you can take it to a mobile repair shop but thats guarenteed to cost
    Get the latest info for NoAccSplash Here
    Currently it should work on iOS 4.x - 6.x
    If you'd like to help extend its functionality, the source is also available.

    I tried taking it back to apple, but they would not accept without original sim.

    Sounds like it is not getting enough charge, are you using a wall charger or charging from a computer? Try a wall charger or connecting via a powered USB hub.

    If it is a 2G iPhone and the contents are not important then:

    Put it in DFU mode http://www.hackint0sh.org/f137/54082.htm and restore OS 3.1.2 and then jailbreak and unlock

    Thanks for the response, this is a 3g phone. I have my sister inlaw looking frantically for the passcode.
