    Alright hopefully your reading this.... here's my problem.

    I found a 2nd Gen Iphone. I took out the SIM card that was in the Iphone and inserted my ATT sim card from my ATT phone. I tried restoring it, in order to unlock + jailbreak it via itunes. The Iphone restored succesfully, but now all i get is a "Emergency Only Screen" followed by a Connect to Itunes logo. I did just that and iTunes asks me to register the iPhone by entering credit card / billing information. Is the Iphone bricked, is there anyway to fix/bypass this?? Please help me bro.

    Thanks in advance :)

    The emergency calls only screen means your phone hasn't been activated by iTunes. If you are getting the connect to iTunes logo, you need to do a restore or update the firmware. If you are planning on unlocking it, don't upgrade to the 2.2.1 firmware, stick with the 2.2. Since the phone seems stuck in restore mode as well, you can try downloading and running QuickPWN to activiate it as well
