    I got a Iphone off Ebay, that should tell ya that the iphone has problems right there..lol
    Anyway when you press the power button nothing happens, but when i plug it in to my laptop it goes on, and itunes detects it, in recovery mode.. and I can't get it out of recovery mode.

    when I tried to restore, I've gotten error (1611) (20) (5)
    I've tried ( ibrickr ) ( iLiberty ) ( Ziphone ) and none of them can detect my iphone, ''But'' it shows up in itunes in recovery mode??? '' I don't get it..

    Is my iphone ''BRICKED'' and is there anything I can do..
    PLEASE HELP ME !!!! If someone helps me out of recovery mode I will reward them greatly....

    I have no idea what on it, The most I got it to do is when restoring there a apple on the screen with a Progress bar under the apple. But the bar never fills up, the phone goes back off then on again, and trys to restore again but the samething happens again then finally I get a error (1611) Thats it..

    The only thing is that when I press the Sleep/wake button nothing happens, only when I plug it in my laptop will it turn on..
    I know the battery is good, because when I unplug from my laptop it stays on for awhile, and the power button works too, so I don't understand why it won't turn on when I press power??
    I will try the DFU MODE and let you know Thanks

    Hold both the home button and sleep/wake button for 10 seconds, then let go of the HOME button, still holding the sleep/wake button on top. This should boot the phone. If it works, let me know for what to do next.
