I've been researching this problem for a while on the web but I figure the best way to get an answer is through a forum. My friend just got the iPhone 3G so I have his old one. I "restored" it and now it's stuck in the "emergency mode". I can't even use the basic settings like Safari or maps. The phone I'm using now is an AT&T Sony Ericsson with a 64kb smart chip SIM card. His iPhone won't use my SIM card. I'm not on a data plan but is it possible to still use the phone with my current $39.99 plan and SIM card? How do I activate the phone to use as an iPod touch at the very least? Is there a program that I need to download to make this possible? Please let me know...any advice would be greatly appreciated!
