thank you so much. do you thank i messed up my iphone? i put the iphone 3g battery in and tryed to restore it before i new about the apn number and it gave me bunches of error codes. now that i know it was cuz of the battery. did i do any damage to the phone?


Not necessarily :-) see what you get when you have the new battery. The iPhone does give you all kinds of weird errors with the wrong battery, so you might just be okay.


i thought i bricked it. but i ordered 2 batterys and both of them are for the 3g and it did all the random shut downs. but it finally went to dfu mode with black screen. but last night i changed out the battery with the other one and it did turn on and went to the recovery mode screen with the usb and itunes so i thank that is a great sign. but thank you so much. i sent the people another email on ebay and im just waiting on them to reply back so i can get the right battery.


Sounds like your phone is still in good shape. Let us know how it is going when you have the right battery ;-), good luck.


Thank you for accepting my answer, good luck to you.
