    Pull my SIM card.

    Reset New used phone

    Insert my sim card

    Connect to iTunes

    Restore my data.

    If this is wrong please let me know.

    THANKS!!!

    It locked up when I went to upgrade the iPhone OS software.

    Did you try a DFU restore before you bought the used one. You really can't brick an iPhone.

    Spent an hour on the phone with tech support. They said it is a hardware issue.
