    Well 2moro i have a meeting with an apple genuis to fix my 2g iphone. It has an error that says i cannot recieve call or make calls. The problem is i really dont know what to say. My warranty is over and i have a unlocked iphone but its stuck in recovery mode. What do you guys think they will ask me and what should i say?

    They don't replace jailbroken/unlocked phones.

    You need to restore the phone (from DFU mode) to original factory settings. The Genius will likely refuse to help you if the phone has been hacked/jailbroken/unlocked. Ironically, if you restore the phone it is likely your problem will be fixed.

    Did you try to connect to iTunes and pressing home and the lock button together to put it into recovery mode. That usally works to restore it.

    I'd sell it, since it's JB and it is also out of warranty...:(

    lost music when dowloading genuis

    Hi,

    I just downloaded genuis and I lost many of my emusic files. I now just have the buttons that say that the files cannot be found. Any suggestions beyond screaming?

    Thanks,
    Geoff
