    - I just bought an apple iphone 2g. It was working fine on my network. I accidently tried to upgrade the software on itunes when it had been Jailbroken with 3.0. This has cause it to come up with this message everytime. Insert a valid Sim with no pin lock to activate iphone.

    - What I have done. I have tried to re jailbreak it, I have re installed itune and have tried resetting the iphone etc.

    - The problem I think though is that it won't pick up the iphone as a device on the computer. Can someone possibly point me in the right direction as to how I can get it to show up as a device and also how I can get past this emergency screen. I have spent all yesterday on youtube, searching and trying different things with no solution.

    Your help would be much appreciated.

    I am running Windows Vista and itune 9.0

    I still haven't had any luck, I have tried restoring the 3.0 firmware with no luck. But the biggest problem I have is the computer not picking up the ipod.

    Please any help would be much appreciated.

    I have tried that...but the problem seems to be the computer not picking up the ipod.

    Its shows up in Itunes but doesn't show the details ie that it is an 8gb, what music is on it etc....

    I feel that if I can get it to show up in windows it will work with Ziphone or qkpwn.

    So does anyone know how I can get the computer to recognise my iphone?

    Well, try a restore in DFU mode.

    Thanks for the advice but I have tried that several times and just haven't had any luck.

    I think the main problem like I said is that the ipod just doesn't show up in my computer when connected to computer via usb. I have tried all the usb connections on my laptop without any luck.

    Well, I'm sure you saw this, but if not:

    You might try another computer, to see if it responds differently.
