    I got used 2g iPhone (8gb no sim) an the only software is Cydia, I mean the ONLY thing on the menu list.
    Can anyone tell me:
    a) how to get iTunes to see it
    b) is a sim required to use the device just for iPod (music and picture taking?

    thanks in advance

    Plug it into your computer, then turn the phone off (hold top button until slide to turn off appears.

    Hold home button (round one) and power button top button and count to ten, at ten release top button but keep holding home round button. After another ten or so seconds iTunes will recognise a device in recovery mode - if it doesn't repeat the steps you have just done.

    Once in recovery click restore, let iTunes download the latest firmware and restore the iPhone, at the end it should say connect to iTunes and iTunes should say you need to insert a valid sim to activate. You can use Redsnow 0.8 for this and then use the iphone as an ipod - post back if you get stuck.

    Plus free updates to the newest firmware vs paying $10 to update to 3.0

    itouch are ridiculously expensive, but you dont get them subsidized by having to sign up for a contract. Wasnt the Bill of materials like almost 200 for an 3gS and u get them for 200 when u sign up?

    but yeah can you even get to the main screen without having it activated?
