Smart phone ??

Which one of the two phones in the picture can send and receive SMS's, store contacts, browse the internet, run Java apps and most importantly make phone calls ? If you thought the one on the left... WRONG !!!


One of my friends got a new iPhone 3G and promptly 'bricked' it while installing an update. Now the 200+ KD device plays mp3 and shows the time. Hes now waiting for OS 3 to come to the rescue. If there are any iPhone geeks out there please help.

I think his iphone wasn't "officially unlocked", that's why it didn't accept the update and eventually got bricked. Unfortunately I have no idea how to recover bricked iphones neither know anyone who could. Sorry and good luck to your friend.

Try the shops opposite the Sharq fire station.

MacaholicQ8: yeah I think so too, not officially unlocked. Anyway lets wait for the professional hackers to release a fix for this. Thanks man

mario: I dont know if they are capable of flashing/ or performing a firmware rollback, but yes I'll ask him to take it there.

I could do with a fancy looking digital clock in my bedroom and great if it plays MP3 too !

purple: he'll commit suicide if he hears that! :D

What update was he installing? It could be possible to unbrick it in some cases without the need to install the new OS.

Abid: right now we're looking thru forums to see if we can do anything, if it fails then we wait for OS3 :(
