Title:

iPhone needs to be activated but has a password

Text:

Have a water damaged iphone... that i need to back up.

It turns on to the plug-in to itunes screen as if it has never been activated.

Unfortunately it has a password (which i know), and will not activate the phone because iTunes complains about entering the password (which i can not enter because it's not activated)

Also the Power button is broken so i can't hactivate with redsn0w. It's not the flex cable, already tried that.

any ideas? all i need to do is back up the phone.

Device:

iPhone 3GS

Status:
