    it should just ask you to put it in airplane mode and just say no

    if that works then you have to use screen splitter to broadcast over that cable to your tv

    And depending on what FW version you have.....you may not have bought a compatible cable. They are different.

    ^Then you got the wrong cable.

    It has to say compatible with Iphone 3g (not ipod, since your not using an ipod) AND compatible with 2.2.1

    And you may be stuck ordering one online. I ordered one off ebay for $15 works perfectly.

    Use Apple Composite AV Cable(MB129LL) or Apple Component AV Cable(MB128LL).All 3G fws are compatible with them...

    Use the apple cable cuz the other cables on the bay are just for ipods.
