    Hello Everyone,

    I purchased a 3g 8gb iphone that has been unlocked/jailbroken.I have had the phone for 4 days,,and have had to do literally about 20 hard starts due to freezing up,,or losing all sound.

    when i recieve a text message.i will read the message,,then hit edit,,and iphone freezes,,i will do a hard start,,then it works until i go to contacts and try to update some email contact info,,all of a sudden it will freeze up,,i do a hard start,,and sometimes it will restart,,but then at the slide to unlock screen,,it will lock up,,i then do another hard start,,and then i can get to the home page.

    also a couple days ago,,i never recieved an important call,because i didnt realize that my sounds were not working,,no ringtones demo,,no itunes,,no speakerphone,,no sound whatsoever,,so i did a hardstart,,nothing no sound,,i then did the headphone trick jiggling it,,and reinserting it a bunch of times,,nothing,,then i blew into the jack in case of dirt,,nothing no sound again,,I then did 1 more hard start,,and sure enough slide to unlock produced that click sound,,then went to speakerphone,,now all of a sudden ive got sound again.

    this is driving me crazy,,Can anybody give me any advice.The functions of the phone all work when its not freezing up,,and i really like the phone,,but im wondering,,if i undo the jailbreak,,but leave it unlocked so i can keep using my tmobile sim card,,would that work?. I really only need a couple iphone apps,text,,and incoming/outgoing calls only,,but Im not ready to give up yet,,i have version 3.0,,but i dont know what firmware? im new to this iphone instability stuff

    Please Help,,and sorry for writing so much,,just trying to explain whats happening exactly

    Thanks again

    Just do a DFU mode restore. first take out your sim card. Then while its on plug it into your computer and hold the power and the home buttons untill it turns off. Then give it about 3-5 seconds and let go of the power button but keep holding the home button untill your computer recognizes it, and make sure to have iTunes open. iTunes will telll you that you have to restore your phone or something like that, do it then follow this guide to jailbreak and unlock.
