iPhone is bricked. Could really use some help
Okay guys I've done a search but I don't see the exact problem that I'm having.
I recently unlocked my iPhone to use on T-Mobile now. I went through unlocking
the APN and everything, and the sim card worked just fine. The problem I was
running into was that my Wi-Fi wouldn't work. With or without my sim card.
So I reset my "network settings" without my sim card inside and Wi-Fi worked
fine along with the service. Then today I ran into the same Wi-Fi problem.
Well I reset network settings again with the sim card inside and now my phone
is stuck on the Apple logo. No matter how many times I try to reboot the
phone. I plug it into my USB to restore it and iTunes won't recognize it. I'm
in need of some major help here.
I am jailbroken by the way.
Any help would be appreciated

reset "network settings" without the sim card in it. Worked after that. After I
turned it off and didn't use it for a couple of days the sim card worked just
fine for voice and data, but the Wi-Fi wouldn't turn on again. So I reset network
settings again while the sim card was in it and that's when I was stuck on
the Apple logo. That's the only thing I know that I did different that time.

Force it into recovery mode by holding the powerful and home buttons or just let the battery die and restore with iTunes.
If you're using a newer 3Gs then you require a tethered jailbreak so every time the phone is powered off then you need to connect it and run RC3
Since I switch sims between my iPhone and Blackberry I just have one added
step to switching. Before I insert the sim card I make sure I reset network
settings on my iPhone and then insert the sim card and then I'm good to go.
I just hate that on a reboot or turning off the phone that the Wi-Fi turns off
and I have to do it again. But what can ya do.
