    Hi, I really need help with my iPhone 3G, here is my problem:

    It factory reset itself last night for some reason, this morning I plugged it into iTunes and it said I need to unlock it, however as it had returned to factory settings I could not unlock it. I then took it to the school techies and they tried something and as the lock button does not work there method did not work, so now I am stuck with it like it is.

    Has any one got any ideas on how to fix it? Or would it be wise to go and get a 4s, (however my MBP will have to wait for longer)

    Will

    What exactly do you mean by "it said I need to unlock it"? Like, passcode unlock?

    Did you have a passcode lock on it before? If so, did you try to enter that passcode? If not, did you try "0000" or "1234"?

    Do a Hard Reset to wipe oit all locks, Or you can connect to iTunes and do a RESTORE
