    Got a 3GS iPhone (NOT jailbroken).
    Out of the blue 2 months ago it just shut down and I havent been able to turn it on.

    1)Recovery mode: Apple logo over and over and over etc...
    2)DFU mode: can get to restore on iTunes but won't let me update "the iphone "iphone" cannot be restored (error 2001)" I get the "connect to itunes picture without an information "i")
    3)If i connect it to a wall charger it gives me the "Connect to iTunes picture WITH a small "i" that when selected, tells me "IMEI: unknown, ICCID: unknown".

    What can I do BEFORE taking it to warranty, my carrier (Mexico's Telcel) told me warranty is void because of a microscopic crack on the headphone jack, wtf I know... I want to try something before taking it to some Authorized Apple Store.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS- While researching I saw other people that had ALMOST the same message, but their messages also tell them "no wifi, no bluetooth, no audio", MINE JUST SAYS IMEI/ICCID UNKNOWN"
