    Ok, I tried to use pois0n on my Iphone 4 verizon 4.2.8. After I installed it the loader icon would do anything when pushed. After more research and being told I could use it, I found out it didn't work. I did a restore and reset my phone. Now I have no service, no network or anything. I've tried to reset it all different ways to no avail. Can someone please help me? Thanks in advance!!!

    If you put it into DFU mode and restore to a clean, blank install of the current firmware, it should in theory be fine. If it isn't, its definitely under warranty just don't restore from an old backup of the phone from itunes. Install it fresh and do not restore ANY data before you can tell if it will work.

    DFU mode how-to: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1034

    If the restore starts, you're no longer in DFU mode (not sure if you ever were)

    DFU mode is not the same thing as the connect to itunes screen, FYI. I just advised you to go to DFU mode because it seems to be the failsafe way to get your phone to do a device firmware upgrade, which is what DFU stands for. Itunes should say something to the affect of "itunes has detected an iPhone in DFU mode" when done correctly.

    finally got it fixed... I took it into the Verizon store and they activated it in 30 seconds.. The reason was I had to be in the same town down the road that the phone number is for. Very strange but it worked!

    Now I'm looking for a good jailbreak!!!
