Hello everybody,

Since the 8th of May this year, my iPhone suddenly lost Bluetooth, Phone, Sms, Wifi, Egde and my speakers also won't work.
Shutting down takes ages.
Its now basically an iPod Touch without wifi.

What exactly happened?

I bought a first generation iPhone, got it jailbroken, unlocked and downgraded the bootloader to 3.9FB.
He worked perfect, but then the other day, while I was surfing the web, he gave me aan Error message.
"Repair needed".
I restored the phone and since then I always get the message.

What I tried

I googled litterally my ass of the couple of months.
I saw alot of "Solutions" that didn't work for me.
Like restoring tot 1.0.1 and then again to 1.1.4.
Alsof 2.0 came out so they told me restoring to that firmware would probably help, but it didn't.
Also tried to manually reflash the baseband with an terminal, nope didn't work.
I even put it into the freezer for 24 hours and got the battery totally drained, they said on low power
I could probably flash my baseband, didn't work.

Winpwn 2.5 has the ability to create custom firmware, wich can wipe my phone, create new baseband files and even change the root partition, but I can't get the iPhone pwned.
Not on Linux, Apple or Windows.

I think my baseband is corrupt.
Do you guys think you can help me?

Why don't you just exchange it to get a new one?

The warranty is at least 1 year... so if you didn't cause the problem, you can give it back and get a new one or (i think) get your money back, or store credit (you can spend the money you payed for the phone in that store and buy what ever you want)

What might of happened is that they black listed you for unlocking your phone without their permission.

In the authentication process for a GSM/EDGE/UMTS network, databases are contacted which contains what you can do. Through careful crushing of terabytes of information over a period of time that the SysAdmin cared, the network saw that your phone was able to do things it shouldnt, and thus they screwed you. With technology increasing, the ability of a cellular provider to micromanages increases exponentially.

My suggestion is if you like your credit rating and your current legal status is not to play games too much with a cellular provider. Dont quote me on this, but call AT&T and ask what happened.
