    Hope nobody calls you until June/July when the official 4.0 is released I think.

    At least you can save some cash on a few months of cell phone bills.

    Well, I don't know how to find my UDID if it's in restore mode. If I want to restore it gives an error ;)

    1) Try and downgrade back to 3.0 from DFU mode (probably won't work)
    2) Register as a developer, pay your $100 and wait for them to process your application
    3) Buy a new phone
    4) Follow SilentPanda's advice.

    No offence meant, but how could you think you were registered as a developer if you weren't? :confused:

    Restore won't work... At lest it didn't in the 3.0 beta days.

    Ditto...

    You can put the iPhoen in DFU mode and you can get the UDID that way. I know how it's done on a Mac, just not on Windows. Do a google search and you should be able to discover how to do it on a Windows PC.

    The UDID won't help you unless you're going to register as a paid developer.

    Nope.

    Apparently it's also in the backups. Where can I find the iTunes backups on Windows?

    My guess is he got the 4.0 OS off of a Torrent site and installed it...

    He downloaded OS 4.0 and installed it on his only iPhone. He's not a paid-registered Developer and his UDID is not on file with a paid-registered Developer so his phone is bricked until his UDID gets on file with a Developer.

    Just as Apple did with OS 3.0, after updating to the Beta OS, you cannot revert back to an earlier OS.

    download 3.x OS, hold ALT key - click on restore button and load that OS instead of trying to load the current one which saved somewhere in iTunes folder - this should work, because it holds only factory settings

    Yep, you can not go back. But I registered my self somewhere in late 2009, and than I 'just' cancelled it. I thought it would remain for one year.
