3G newbie needs help please
Hello all, I bought a 3G on ebay from a guy who told me the phone was never jailbroken or unlocked. This was his description:
"iPhone 3G black 8GB; gently used and in good condition
when iPhone turns on it says that it must be connected to iTunes; will not restore itself due to software issues.
we have not contacted apple to try to fix it"
I got the phone and all it will do is display the itunes cd and cable.
I thought I would be able to get it going again so I bought it.
I am not on an ATT contract.
I have not been able to figure this problem out. The more I research and read the more confused I get. I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me get it going again. Jailbroken and unlocked.
So I'll try and supply what info I can in the format suggested.
itunes version: 10.0.1.22
iphone os version: unknown
os version: XP sp3
detailed instructions to reproduce the problem: Well the best I can say is when I try and restore with itunes I get the "unknown error occurred (40)"
The only information I can find about the phone in itunes is the serial number. No software version info so I don't know what it was running.
So I don't know how repair the problem.
Here is the link to the itunes "restore log"

I sincerely appreciate any help I can get here with my problem.
I had an older iphone that was jailbroken and unlocked for a couple years until it got stolen. I really liked it and would love to have another.
