Xay Level 1 Level 1
I heard somewhere that the 1.1.1 update is bricking legitimately AT&T activated pre-pay iPhones, which is what I have. I'm just angry and I want to know what is really going on with the 1.1.1 update... Does anybody know?

    What happens when you try to restore?
  • skotech Level 1 Level 1
    mines just stops during restore and gives me an error message
  • xcharliemx Level 1 Level 1
    Mine just acts like it's restoring and the firmware is being updated and then BAM! back to the SIM error. I tried SHIFT clicking the restore button and everything and it still keeps going back to the Invalid SIM. Tech support told me to go get a new ATT sim card but it's well documented on the internet this doesn't fix it. Why are they making me waste my time!?

    I get stuck on "preparing iPhone for restore" step and eventually see 'iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1604)'. Great success!

    I had the same problem (error 1604). Restarted my Mac and relaunced iTunes and that solved it.. but I had to do a restore (which worked fine). Had an un-modded phone so have no idea what the problem was.

    It will restore 1.1.1 and I will get the activation error again...

    We need to be able to downgrade, but the option+restore to a lower version number is giving errors also.
  • Xay Level 1 Level 1
    Is there anyway to downgrade?

    Try calling iPhone technical support at 1-800-MY-IPHONE (1-800-694-7466). They are able to help with this issue.

    I don't understand why so many are having problems where they didn't "do anything" to make it happen.

    Mine and my wife's have worked great and have no issues. Maybe we should be the ones posting that everything works right and we're the weirdos!

    I'm thinking all the complaining posts in this thread are propaganda. All the post counts of the complainants are SUPER LOW. Somewhere between 1 and 7 posts.

    Perhaps they're not board junkies, and haven't needed the help of this forum before.

    Really, over a million phones sold and update complaints appear overwehlming? This upgrade went without a hitch for me on 3 phone. Yes some individuals have problems and I am sure they can be fixed. Stop jumping to general conclusions and start to figure out what the problem is. Trying Apple tech support would be a good place. Why jump on the forum to make unsubstatiated claimes. I bet most are happy with the upgrade. Use some logic and use some other suggestions in other parts of the forum to help you fix your phone. The term bricked is just overused and without good reason. How many times have you done upgrades on other software that did not go as planned. Bet you got that straightened out with tech support easily enough. It's time to stop this constant accusitory attitude everyone seems to have when things don't go as planned. Take a breath and start again. With a little research and advice you can get up and running without conclusions that don't make sense.

    That's a possibility too. Its just something to note. I'm no board junkie either, but I think post count wouldn't be posted if it wasn't something worth seeing.
  • melihah Level 1 Level 1
    Like I said in my last post, even for an out-of-the-box/vanilla/unmodded phone that was locked after the upgrade, apple customer support resolved it (unlocked it again) after 5-10 minutes.

    For those whose phones got locked after the upgrade, I suggest trying the customer support phone number (or walking into an apple store) first.
