I have a small problem with my Iphone 4 5.1 - modem firmware 4.12.01 and I had it just replaced two weeks ago and it was locked and not activated.
After working on it to activate it (don't have the original sim the mobile was locked to) I decide to restore it to factory setting, as it was when replaced. I tried with Itunes but it gives me error 3194 putting it in a loop and later I tried to do it via the device itself (settings > general > reset > cancell data and settings) but it got stuck on the loading circle for 5-6 hours so I pressed together power and home to shut it down.
So what should I do now to restore it to factory settings? I don't know what to do and I don't want to endanger my warranty (if it is still on at this point!!!).I have windows 7 and tried with a different usb ports or with no firewall but to no avail.
I follow the steps provided here: iOS: Forgot passcode or device disabled. I connect my iPhone 4s to my computer and select the "Restore iPhone..." option and then select "Restore and Update" after I get a pop-up. Then iTunes says "Extracting software" and after that completes it gives me an error:Â
The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred(3004).Â Also keep in mind that I am doing this to get rid of a passcode so I cannot access the iPhone directly.Â I am running Windows 7 32-bit SP1. I have the latest version of iTunes.Â
i purchased a new 3gs phone recently without contract but locked to a provider. it already jailbreak it with blackra1n rc3 and possible unlock it with sn0w (i have to test with different provider sim to see if it's unlocked yet?)though i know i have a tethered jailbroken iphone (need to hook up to computer after a reboot) it works fine with wifi and gps but no Internet atm
my phone spec: 3gs 16g version 3.1.2 (7d11) model: mc131c
i realize that this is not my phone and i want to return the phone the apple store to get a full refund (still 14 day of purchase period)? how do i restore to its factory settings without any jailbreak bread-crumbs?
I want to restore my iphone 4 jailbroken to its factory settings but when i click on restore on pc it starts downloading the new 5.1 version, so i just want to ask whether its ok to go ahead , or it can give me sum problem later as my iphone is jailbroken and i cant update the version directly.
I just sold my iPhone 5S and plan to buy the new phone when it comes out.Â Before reseting, I set my number to forward calls to another phone.Â Then I reset, removing all data, etc with it set to forward my calls (which it does).Â
When the new buyer activates the phone with a new sim card, will my forward call setting be visible to him?Â
Im trying to restore factory settings on my iphone to send it off for trade in but it will not allow me to do this without an internet connection. The wifi on the phone doesnt work which is why i've got a new one. Is there any way to do this offline?
I ran into a problem recently, I had to restore my iPhone to factory settings and in doing so I lost all my apps. I also got a new computer and don't have my old computer with all my apps on itunes.Basically I don't have my apps on my iPhone or computer.Is there any way I can recover my apps using my itunes account?
I woke up this morning to my phone saying it needs to be connected to itunes. When I try to connect it says restore to factory settings cause my phone cannot be recognized. What should I do? I don't want to lose everything.
Everytime I plug my iPhone 4s into my computer and try to sync with iTunes, I get an error saying, "iTunes cannot read the contents of the iPhone "xxxx", Go to the summary tab in iPhone options and click restore to restore this iPhone to factory settings". I have done this and still get the same problem. I use Windows 7. I have tried running both on and off administrator mode and with and without my Zonealarm firewall. This phone has never been jailbroken.
I've gone as far as done a restore to original factory settings and the problem still persists. I've removed all apps that could use the camera, such as flashlight. Nothing has changed, the camera screen appears grayed out and won't take photos.
Once or twice a month, when I unlock my phone I have the white apple with the progress bar below it out of nowhere. All my settings are turned back to factory defaults. Did the full restore and all but sooner or latter it does it again.
