I will he receiving a free iphome 4 but will be using it as an ipod touch. If i were to restore it will it be able to restore or not. On a couple of youtube videos i was researching it showed an iphone 4 being restored having a conected carrier and going through the activating iphone process. Will my iphone that has no carrier connected still go throuch a restoring process?
You will have to have a SIM in the phone in order to restore and activate it. It does not have to be tied to active service, but it must be present. If the phone is carrier locked, it must be from the correct carrier.
