    I deleted all of my data from my iPhone via the manual delete on the iPhone (not iTunes). The battery was fully charged and the iPhone placed into Airplane mode before shutting it off. The iPhone was taken out of the US and now the iPhone will not start. The original AT&T SIM card was not touched. Apple’s reset protocol does not work and plugging the iPhone into another Mac it is not recognized via iTunes either. Any comments/suggestion and or recommendations as to how to get my iPhone out of its coma would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Chris

    Was it taken out of the US via the Underwater Express?

    Taken out of the US meant to say physically taken to Europe for confirmed sale. iPhone was neatly packed and hand-carried.

    Thanks, Chris

    Erm, your lost contacts? Who are you? I'm lost.

    This is just a way to get the phone operating properly (with luck) again. It should delete all your information from the phone. But once it starts working correctly, assuming all your contacts are on your Mac or PC, then yes, they will get synced again when you connect it to iTunes and sync it.

    Re Comatose iPhone II

    Thanks for helpful reply, especially Mohan. FYI, iPhone is at friends' house who won't return until June 5th to try your suggestions. I, the owner am in Argentina. Will inform results. Thanks again.
