    How about putting it into restore mode (aka Home Button + Power Button) and restoring it through iTunes?

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.

    Okay. Now my next question since the problem i am having is with the phone not receiving calls while in sleep mode, how do i tell them that that is defective if i dont have an iphone plan. Also, 1.1.3 isn't out yet so I will still be able to use the new phone?

    Are you using a TurboSIM-like solution? Because there's no way you can make calls on a locked iPhone. Got confused at that part

    It's getting more and more confusing. You just said in your first post you haven't unlocked it. Now you're saying you have unlocked it? Maybe you're confusing "unlocking" with "jailbreaking".

    yes im sorry for that mistake. I have not unlocked the iphone, but jailbreaked it and activated it using ibrickr, so the phone is virtually unchanged, but is not working properly (loss of signal in sleep mode) and so i would like to exchange it.

    I don't think it is defective at all. I think this is a known issue. Search the forum. I almost 100% sure I've seen a lot of people with the same problem.

    Check this: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=22549

    And by the way, you're posting on the wrong section of the forum. This has nothing to do with "Unlocking".
