how to activate an iphone without the original apple id
To activate an iPhone do you need the original SIM ?
I currently have an iPhone 3GS which had been unlocked, I then tried to update it presuming it would lock back to the original network which I didnt mind, but yet the phone wont activate once updated, any ideas ?
Im buy apple in-air headphones with remote control about 6 mounth ago.
Microphone work fine, im can play/stop/rewind music, but volume control not work.
Today im install on phone last software 3.1.3 but it not help.
On russian site about it wrote : remote control supports iPod nano 4generation, iPod classic 120 Gb ,iPod touch 2-generation and iPhone 3GS.
So, what about iphone cant use volume control? Or its can?

Do Apple Store replace my original iPhone 4S headphones as the plastic is getting away. My iPhone is still in the original 1-year warranty.
I am trying to activate imessage on my phone.
I was having some trouble with it so I turned it off but when I tried to activate it it started insisting that my Apple ID/Username is incorrect.
What is strange is that the my phone accepts the apple id/password combo and so does my apple id account online when i login...the issue is that the imessage software refuses it for some reason.
Appreciate your help.
Now that the Original iPhone 2G is coming up to 2 years, a lot of the people who purchased it, have their contracts expiring. Therefore they would legally own their iPhones and can do what they want with it.
I have heard that other phone/mobile carriers remove the lock once the original commitment has been fulfilled. Does that mean towards July 2009, Apple might in fact remove the SIM lock on the iPhones with the serial numbers that surpass the 2 year mark?

Dear community Happy New Year .listen I have a Apple Iphone 4s:I have had this as a gift since may 2012.Its good,but my daughter and about 10 other people I know are having problems with their wall chargers in home and maybe even mobile im not sure.I especially take great care in disconnecting my device and removing the cord when not in use. the wear and tear cannot be that often to cause this damage we are all having !The cord on the charger is unravelling from the base where the apple iphone is attached when or while charging. I have use the cord in very bad conditions because #one I cannot afford to replace this item at the OFFICIAL APPLE STORE so Im guessing people like myself is going to discount stores to make purchase of chargers they most likely not work! I have tried 3 and none work spending anywhere from $8.00-$15.00 dollars. Im also concern about the fact that a lot of CHILDREN who must most likely go un supervised on using this unravelled IPHONE CHARGER CORD when their parents maynot be aware. I not the voltage may not be of that large in which someone could cause shock or harm Im not certain of this either, However theres always a first Im asking can you either number one recall these chargers via Apple Corportation or two these cell phone companies who sell your product make them accountable for this .I learned today through Apple that the cell phone companies that sell Apple product use 3rd parties material to produce these mobile and home wall chargers and that they are not made by APPLE CORPORATION I WAS VERY UPSET TO KNOW THIS !I am asking you APPLE to look into this very important concern that not just me but other consumers may have before their is an injury. also if you sell a $500.00 product thats MADE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY CERTAINLY YOU CAN INCLUDE A GENIUNE CHARGER WITH YOUR APPLE PRODUCT WHEN SOLD IN CELL PHONE COMPANIES STORES AND STRIP MALLS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND SURELY PEOPLE ARENT AWARE THAT THE REAL PRODUCT IS ONLY AT THE APPLE STORE EVEN IF THIS IS TRUE ! ps I called the apple store today to get a replacement they wanted to charge me would only offer me a $1.25 cent discount ! IST THIS WHAT APPLE PAY TO HAVE OTHER COUNTRIES MAKE THE IPHONE? THANKS APPLE FOR HEARING MY
CONCERNS....firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
When I activate a phone the cell phone company records my info along with the phones info i.e. serial number, IMEI, MEID, CDN, and ICCID number so if I report it lost or stolen why cant they return my phone to me when someone else tries to activate it? They have the info right there, how hard is it to contact the rightful owner If I brought in a stolen car to the dmv and tried to register it in my name they wouldnt just tell me I cant register it and send me on my way, even if I was not the one who stole it the car would be taken and returned to the rightful owner. Why isnt it the same with phones, they know who used to own it from those numbers and they also know it has been lost or stolen, why dont I get my property back?
i have the original iPhone and my contract ends sometime this month. does that mean i get the new contract pricing for the 3Gs? or do i have to pay at&ts extra fees?

I have an iphone 3gs, 32 gb ordered and the original iphone. My ipod nano 4gb just died (old one), so I have some choices to make about my iphone 2g:
1. Sell it, no idea how much what with 3gs at 99.00.
2. Make it my new ipod.
3. Use it as my developer iphone (obviously limited due to old hardware).
4. Unlock it and play with that.

Thinking about upgrading. I am under the impression that the 3g doesnt come with the AC plug. Does the cable and plug from the original iPhone work for the 3g? Does the 3g come with headphones?

how to activate an iphone without the original apple id
The original iPhone I bought 1 year ago is the worst phone I have every had. Part At&t service it AWFUL. I get at least 3-6 dropped calls daily and when they are not dropped, people tell me they cant hear me, there is static or broken words. I cannot receive ANY calls in my apartment in Emeryville, CA. I miss my client call ALL the time. I am wondering 2 things:
(1) Does Apple plan to drop its contract with At&t when their time is up with them? If so, when is this? (considering if I will switch back to Verizon), and
(2) Has anyone experienced improved service and phone reliability when they went from the original iPhone to the 3G?
btw, I live in a major metropolitan area - San Francisco/Berkeley. I lose calls driving down Martin Luther King. I cannot get any service in 2 local cafes, where everyone else is talking on their Blackberries!
