Thanks, but I can't restore the phone, because I get error messages when trying to activate it of the type 'apple server is unavailable'; or 'there is no SIM card in your phone' when there is). I can't push the software back to 6.0 because I can't get any of the various jailbreaking programs to work, on my computer or a friend's.
I can't afford a new iPhone. I was hoping there might be someone who's successfully done this sort of thing a lot, who might be willing to do it for me.
Hi all. After recently arriving in Kunming with my iPhone, I discovered it wasn't able to take calls on Chinese networks. My big mistake was then to pay someone at a phone shop to 'fix' this - which he did by jailbreaking it. Problem was, it downgraded the software to iOS 4.0 or so, which meant my essential apps like Pleco were no longer usable.
I then tried to fix this by jailbreaking it myself - but just dug in deeper. So I now have an iPhone (3GS) with iOS 6.1.3 software, but which won't activate via Apple's servers or iTunes, so can't be used at all. I have rigorously followed a ton of instructions from the web about how to proceed, but nothing has worked. I don't expect someone here to tell me how to solve this, but does anyone know of any experts in this sort of stuff that I might turn to, for payment or otherwise? I'd be happy with just my apps back, and I'll use a cheap dumbphone for calls.
Thanks for reading.
