    bought a 3g today, girl said it was unlocked to tmobile. guessing it was the 6.15. she restored it from the settings menu and of course it locked it up on the pineapple menu.

    with multiple combinations of sleep/home button i can get itunes to show the 'itunes has detected device in recovery'. when you push 'ok' the phone goes unrecognized. it disappears from the bar on the left.

    either that or it goes to the steve jobs screen and itunes doesn't recognize it.

    i've done this on quite a few phones and itunes always picks it up... any ideas?
