    Hi,

    Just been given an iphone 3gs and installed itunes 10.7 on my windows computer. Cant get the iphone to recognise at all , when i insert the usb cable i get the beeps but doesnt show at all. Cant get into dfu mode , tried loads of times and tried getting it into restore and no joy.

    It says on the screen the following when i turn the phone on..

    No Sim card installed...Insert a valid sim with no pin lock to activate phone

    It has the itunes logo on aswell and the uisb lead picture below the icon.


    Any idea?

    Matt

    The ICCID is the SIM card number. It sounds like it might need a SIM before you can do anything further with it. If that's not the issue, then you might find a solution in the Apple Support article below:
