    Does it have a dock connector? If you don't have the flip-able switch, you don't have an iPhone.

    Sounds like you have a fake. Where did you buy it, and how much did you pay for it?

    Yea, that is the kind I meant.

    Does your "iPhone" look anything like the ones here: http://www.diytrade.com/china/4/pro..._DUAL_SIM_LAMP_DUAL_2_CAMERA_FLASH_LIGHT.html
    or http://www.diytrade.com/china/4/pro...OMPASS_JAVA_Two_sim_cards_quad_band_32GB.html

    If you have JAVA then it is a fake, as the iPhone does not have JAVA.

    Does it have icons for the App Store and iTunes store? Do they work? If no, you probably don't have an iPhone.

    yes it have icon for itunes but i didn't try it cause it needs a WAP and i don't know how to connect it :D
    and the sec. icon looks like the app store but it's name is resource and it works as manager or explorer for the files and music ??

    plug it into itunes and click restore. maybe itll be better. if something goes wrong like i think you said itunes doesnt recognize it, then take it to an apple store and ask them to confirm if its a real iphone or not. sounds like its totally not. i mean really, apple would never put a pushable vibrate switch, if u had it on vibrate it could switch off in your pocket.
