Iphone 3G 8GB- No IMEI NO ICCID Detected

Hi All,

I got this iphone from customer that doesn't show IMEI number or ICCID number and there is no firmware detected also under General>>About. I have tried to flash the phone to restore it but never success. Is there a way to revive this iphone so it get IMEI number/firmware version and so on ?

tried many times already ...not success !! I have no idea how the imei and ic cid number shown as unknown. The customer said he did the firmware update and pull the plug out during the firmware upgrade. I managed to restore the firmware ok but phone doesn't work properly because of no imei number ?

I had that problem after using pwnage with the option to activate the phone (i have iphone 3g 2.1 fw).
After unchecking the option to activate the phone in pwnage and let iTunes activate it it worked again just fine.
Maybe ur customer hada jailgreak iPhone.
Good luck

You have to be in DFU mode anyway when you use winpwn or quickpwn to jailbreak or unlock. Just need to find out which version djslash was using to fix this problem and if its for 3G iphone not 2G.

i managed to successfully restored firmware 2.0.2 to the iphone but no luck with getting IMEI and IC CID number back on the iphone. And if i leave the iphone on for a while a message come up ~ Iphone cannot make call or received. Please contact apple to repair.

Any solutions ?

Never seem to work with firmware 2.1 i have tried many times but never success restore it auto/manually. Best progress so far is get it successfully restored on firmware 2.0.2 but phone still doesn't show IMEI and IC CID.

Again, I think the reason why you don't have IMEI number or ICCID numberis because you're baseband is f***d up.
Don't restore OR upgrade the phone, just use pwnage OR winpawn if you dont own a Mac to make a custom fw without the option to activate the iPhone and THEN restore your iPhone with this fw.
