    Bricked iPhone 3GS
    It 's a long story, but can a bricked iPhone 3GS be brought back to life? Apple say they can do nothing even after direct appeals to the CEO. Any advice please.

    Did you really appeal to Tim Cook (he actually communicated with you)?

    Please give us more info on how your iPhone got "bricked". It will certainly help us understand the situation better...and possibly assist in suggesting solutions (just the important details).

    Changed your title to something that made sense.

    By "bricked" I'm assuming your iPhone 3GS is completely dead and can not be restored? How did it come to be that way? Failed jailbreak maybe?

    I think Mr. Cook has other things to do than worry about this :-)
    You must be joking right ?

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Exactly the title I was thinking of...and quite appropriate.

    I just got off the phone with Tim, he says you're screwed. JK, I've been watching the trollbox on BTC-e all day.
