    A friend had trouble adding music to his iPhone so he asked me to try it out. When I turn the phone on I get the message - Repair Needed - Then the apple.com/support site. I plug it into itunes and itunes tells me "The iphone cannot be used with itunes because the info required for activation could not be obtained from the iphone. Anybody know what I can do to get it to work again?

    ALSO, I was thinking about getting an iPhone for myself but I have verizon. Is there any unlocks or hacks to get them to work with Verizon? I noticed my friends iPhone doesnt have a slot for a sim card and verizon doesnt use sim cards so thats hy I was wondering. Thanks

    Never had that error. If its a hardware issue then your probably going to have to send it to apple for repair.

    You can not use any iphone on verizon.

    I finally got itunes to recognize the iphone then tried restoring it 3 times. Every time, I get The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occured (1010). Any ideas?

    yeah, mine did the same thing, it's a physical error, but they will give you a new one, try dfu mode and then take it to them.
