    Default IPhone - help needed....

    Ok my boss has given me an iphone... it's unlocked but he's buggered it by loading something (software) on it.
    If I restore it to it's original settings will it work again?
    Or will just just download Apple's bugger-it-up-and-make-it-unworkable bug?

    Can you do an uninstall of this program?

    My hubby downloaded a cowbell program onto his iPhone cuz we gotta have more cowbell!!!!!

    He plays the cowbell while listening to iTunes

    When it loads into iTunes, there should be a tab you can click on to reset it. (It may be called "restore.") It will take everything off of it--music, photos, applications, etc.--and reset it to its original factory settings. I had to reset mine once when it was acting buggy.

    I'm confused. iPhones don't have SIM cards.

    Mobile service provider, I wouldn't say they're a network cuz techinically they're just piggybacking on Rogers (a bigger Network) I believe.

    http://www.fido.ca

    I wish you could see some of their posters/commercials, pretty neat, I especially like the pug ones, of course.

    Oh wait, here are some

    YouTube - Fido - interesting commercial

    YouTube - FIDO commercial

    YouTube - Cute dog Ad / Advertisement

    I'm not spamming, honest! It's just so cute how the dog and the owner resemble each other in their ads (obviously meant to do so).

    if you look at the top you'll see a round earphone plug and the on/off switch. in the middle is a cover with a tiny hole in it. Its only accessible with an unbent paperclip. It your ping it it'll spring open and there is a holder for your sim in there.

    Having said that it's really hard to find and doesn't look like a normal sim cover.
