    Default china iphone

    Hello

    I've got a problem with my new iphone. I've bought the 32gb iphone 3gs with model number: A1241 FCC ID:BCGA1241 IC ID:579C-A1241 and software version: I8355_FN_CA_W_VI_0_7. After some research I figured out this is the fake iphone from china. Logic, I paid 110 euros.

    Most of the functions work, but some important won't. When I connent this iphone to my imac and windows machine, itunes wouldn't regonize the phone. When I connent this iphone to my windows machine, iphone pc suite tells me the phone is not connected (in the phone I've chosen for usb connection).

    Is there any way to get this phone right connected with itunes or iphone pc suite?
    Is it possible to run itunes on it?
    Is it possible to change the firmware (I8355_FN_CA_W_VI_0_7) to the apple firmware (3.x)?

    Thanks a lot!
    Thorn

    Hate to say it but with the vast majority of clone devices, the original manufacturer's software is less than compatible. I do not believe you will be able to get Apple's true iPhone OS on the device as if the device was 100% apple compatible, they'd probably already have the iPhone OS on it to begin with. I'd recommend trying to return the device if it was advertised as a legitimate -- if you purchased with an AmEx credit card they offer protection in cases such as this, as does PayPal and a few other of the online transaction brokers.

    Good luck!

    You know when they say when something is too good to be true, it really doesnt end up being good at all.

    110 Euros = 158 U.S. dollars

    China iPhone/iPod clones in the US you can get them for $60 to $100. It really isn't worth it all. iTunes sync issues, the apps looks crappy, the resolution and screen size is smaller. Many other issues too much to list.
    There is no such thing as a mistake, there is what you do, and what you don't do.
