    I don't know, but I'd take it to the Apple store genius bar before considering burying it.

    Bought It From Someone For $75 Dollars Phone IS In Perfect Condition. Thought It Could Be A Easy Fix Or A Restore And Its Pretty Much Not Synching And The Computer Isnt Picking It Up. Everyone Keeps Telling Me To Restore It And Problem Solved But I Cant Do That Cause My Dell Isnt Picking It Up. I Tried It On A Mac Book Air With A Fresh iTunes Install And It Still Didnt Pick Up.

    Is it unlocked running on T-Mobile? Did you jailbreak it?

    I Bought The Phone As Is. It Was Already Disabled. I Do Not Know What They Attempted To Do B4. I Looked On Youtube And They Have Fixes But I Cant Get That Far Because My CPU Does Not Recognize The Phone. Its Currently On The Dock.

    Here is what you gotsa do!

    1) Plug in your phone.
    2) Turn on iTunes.
    3) Hold both Power and Home buttons until the phone shuts off.
    4) Once it does, let go of the Power button and hold the Home button a little longer.
    5) Hold it until iTunes detects it in DFU mode.

    Probably my ignorance but I thought RIM was the only company that produced bricked devices... Interesting.
