I am giving a friend my old phone. I deleted the data from the phone- I thought this was the way to restore factory settings. Now I can only call 911 on the phone. How can I get the factory settings back?

conversely if I sent it to him, and he brought it into his provider to get it started would they be able to restore data?

looked thru pages and did not see question about this phone model specifically, hope is not a repeat.

Restore using iTunes. If your friend wants service and such, he'll have to insert a valid and functioning SIM that's supported by the 3G's original carrier. Otherwise, he'll have to unlock it before using it.

Oh yes, I did try that too but iTunes doesn't recognize the phone?

Put the phone into DFU mode and see if iTunes recognizes the device in Recovery Mode. Otherwise, you'll need to reinstall either your USB driver or your device driver.
