    The wifi has recently bumed out on my Unlocked iPhone. I've tried a restore and deleting all my apps and nothing seems to be fixing it. So i guess it's a hardware problem.

    What should i do about the unlocked firmware?

    1.Do i restore to the usb cable and iTunes picture and remove my orange sim card and put the o2 one that came with the phone in.

    2.Just take the simcard out while the phone is on an hope apple don't look at the settings (i guess they can see if its been modified?).


    I hate not having wifi :(

    go to settings-> general-> reset-> erase all content and settings. This will take about an hour.after that your iphone will be stuck at the apple logo, do a restore from DFU mode, then set it up as a new phone. Put the old simcard in and take it to apple, they will replace it for free if you are still under warranty (your phone is under 1 year old, unless you got extended warranty and you have not cracked the screen or gotten water damage)

    Will they not notice it hasen't been activated?

    When I get a new phone will I be able to restore it from a backup of my old one?

    Just tell them you wiped the phone because you knew you would be returning it. And yes, you should be able to restore the new phone with the backup from your old one.
