    Why Iphone is so hard to use....


    Your brother forgets his password, and that makes the iPhone hard to use? Ok....

    He tried and tried to put in the password, but the time got so long each wait.


    Here's the information about passcode forgetting: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1212

    If you are using an AT&T iPhone on T-Mobile you must've hacked the iPhone:

    You don't. If you've updated to iPhone OS 3.1.3 you now have a useless paperweight which can only be used on AT&T.

    Firstly, I really don't like to help people get past a password lock. You say your brother was distracted when he entered it, but you have to actually enter it twice to set it, so being distracted isn't an excuse. Many people find or steal phones and come here looking to get past the screen lock.

    As far as using it on another carrier, the previous poster was correct in telling you that your phone needs to be hacked and unlocked, but definitely incorrect in saying that it is a paperweight if its been upgraded to 3.1.3. The Original iPhone can and will always be unlockable. This however is not the place to give out such information, and I suggest you look elsewhere, as you won't find what you are looking for on Apple's forums.
