    hey i just bought a iphone4 from craigslist.
    having ton of problems just turning on the damn phone after a reset just trying to restore the damn thing,
    i was told there is a year warranty on the phone.
    the phones locked to fido (service provider, i use Rogers service provider)
    can i get replaced to new one from apple or even fido cause my gf has fido?
    are there things to say/not say?

    Unless I'm wrong Apple's warranties are non-transferable.

    What is your iPhone doing exactly?

    You're probably not restoring correctly. What exactly is happening when you do get the phone to turn on?

    1)plugin iphone to comp, hold home key and power till iTunes and usb came up
    2)turned off itunes
    3)turn on tinyumbrella(4.21.01), start tts server
    4)turn on itunes, and press 'RESTORE'
    5)ends up with ERROR 1604

    now i tried,,,
    same thing but before step 4 DFU mode,
    while holding shift down 'RESTORE' and found "iPhone3,1_4.1_8B117_Restore.ipsw"

    -removing and reinstalling most recent version of iTunes
    -removing and reinstalling USB
    -try everything in DFU mode

    those are the things i tried..... donnno wat else to try......

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You are mistaken.
    Warranty stays with the phone not the owner.
    All the op needs to do is bring it to apple to have it replaced. Just hope there's no water damage to it.
