I'm new, please don't bite my head off. I'm asking this question with the politest smile and look of concern. So I have this unlock iphone 3g version = 4.0.1 (8A306) firmware 05.13.04 When i plug it into itunes, I get a prompt to restore the iphone back to it's factory settings. I have the newest version of itunes. is there anything that I can do outside of restoring my iphone? what will happen if I do restore it. When i told my friend that I was going to restore it, she yelled at me and commanded me not to, however she couldn't tell me what would happen if I did. Can someone please help me? I've been searching, but I suppose my search has been too specific because I haven't found any significant help.
