    hello,
    i´m a german so i write first in german and in the 1. post will be the translation.
    you can anwer in german or englisch what you like;)


    ein freund von mir hat letztens ein iphone gekauft und es hat alles super funktioniert.
    da aber noch spiele und andere persöhnliche dateien des vorbesitzers drauf waren hat er es wiederhergestellt.
    villeicht hätte ich ihm vorher sagen sollen dass man das eig. nicht macht wenn es mit blackra1n ungelocked wurde, aber egal.
    nun hängt es am anfang fest und zeigt nur noch an dass ich es mit itunes verbinden soll.
    dort wird aber angezeigt dass es eine kompatible sim-karte braucht.
    ich habe eine d1 karte von debitel rein getan, aber immernoch noch nicht kompatibel.:eek:

    kann ich es irgendwie überlisten oder eine neue firware drauf spielen obwohl es nicht im arbeitsplatz angezeigt wird??:confused:

    mfg Marcel

    a friend of mine has bought an iphone and everything works great.
    but games and other personally files from the owner were on it, so he restored it.
    now it is stuck at the beginning and only shows that I had to connect it to itunes.
    the IMEI: 01 0136500 476289 8
    i cant find it in german google.
    so i connect it to itunes and there it says that it need a compatible sim card.
    couse it´s a german phone, i have done a card of d1 telecom debitel in, but it is still not compatible.

    can you tell me a answer, how i can make it usefull.

    It was a bad idea to restore it.
    Most likelly if he did the restore after February 2 he got 3.1.3 firmware on it and that cannot be unlocked at the moment.
    Is it an iphone 3G or 3GS?

    i try it but i can´t go to itunes.
    itunes recognizes the iphone but there stands that i had to put in the right sim-card.
    but we don´t have a t-mobile card (like at&t in usa).
    so i can´t restore it again with shift-button.
    in the folder Pwnage the still the files BL-46, BL-39 and redsn0w.
    if i launch the new 3.1.3. itunes opened but there stand that i need the right sim-card.

    HELP!!!!! :confused::confused::confused::confused:

    Is the phone on 3.1.3 already?
    If its already update to 3.1.3 just shut off itunes and then go on to Step 4with running redsnow to activate, JB and unlock your iphone.
