    Ok here is what happened. I bought a first generation Iphone on ebay. It was jailbroken 1.1.4 and I had planned to jailbreak to 2.0. It didn't have a simcard. I bought a new AT&T simcard on ebay as well and purchased prepaid service for it. The iphone was working, still on 1.1.4. I was looking into how to jailbreak it to 2.0 - wanted installer and the app store - when without my knowledge my brother tried to jailbreak it for me. I don't know what exactly happened but now when I plug my iphone into my computer and itunes, it wants me to activate it with AT&T. It won't recognize my prepaid service. Now all I get is the plug into itunes symbol and nothing else with the iphone. I don't think my brother backed up my iphone, and I have beaten him several times and I will never let him touch anything electronic of mine again. What can be done? I don't care what firmware I get as long as I can get the iphone to work. I'm at my wits end. Please any help appreciated!

    Restore to 2.0 since it is free for iPhones
  3. Did you say there's an iTunes symbol on the iPhone?


    Plug it into the computer and restore it to a custom firmware lol....


    You beat your brother? ROFL

    When I open up itunes, the iphone doesn't show up with the regular screen with the option of restoring. I don't know how to get it to restore, that's the help I need.
