After reboot always wants to connect to iTunes
I am on vacation and traveling overseas. (Buenos Aires if anyone is interested). I rely on the iPhone and oMaps to get around and back home again.
Was in an internet cafe and tried to connect to the internet but it wasn't working so I thought I'd just give it a restart. On starting up I get the "Connect to iTunes" screen.
In a strange part of town - with no maps - and I don't speak spanish at all! Was not happy...
By fluke I managed to get home and then connected the phone and all happy. Thought I don't want this to happen again - so turned it off to check. Sure enough on reboot - Connect to iTunes.
Even flick to Airplane mode - Connect to iTunes.
This is unacceptable when your phone locks you out completely.
In case it makes any difference here are the details:
iPhone bought outright in Australia and unlocked by Optus from their network.
I normally use a Three sim in the phone - which shows it is unlocked.
Got a Claro SIM in Argentina. It is prepaid.
3GS with latest OS
Any ideas on why this is happening?
The iPhone works great until apples paranoia/greed for cash screws ya at the most inappropriate time!

So it locks up and you have to do a restore each time thru itunes to get it back up and running?
Sounds like you might have to bring it to Apple for an exchange.
Dann, I forgot its officially unlocked.
Im not sure where you would exchange it.

Not actually doing a restore. It just has the connect to itunes screen. When I am at home it connects to the WiFi and downloads mail (can see the AirPort logo up the top). So the thing is running - just wants to call home for some reason before it will let me in.
Once connected to iTunes it only takes a few seconds and it is back to normal. Until it restarts that is...

It was bought new. I contact the Telco and asked them to unlock it. And they did. In Australia I don't use the phone with the telco I purchased it from - clearly showing it was unlocked. And if it wasn't unlocked I doubt connecting it to iTunes in Argentina would somehow get it working albeit until a reboot.
