    I got the same problem as JABEER, mine is an iphone 6, and I use mac instead of windows.
    Please, if you could help me solve this

  3. Hello, My Iphone 6 change its status to searching service; after this came, I tried restarting my Iphone for a few times before taking the sim card out, but it would only keep on searching service. I thought a solution would be to restore the phone, but now my phone would go on itunes like:
    Extracting software successfully
    Verifying software successfully
    Restoring Iphone software successfully
    Verifying Iphone software successfully
    Restoring Iphone firmware failed, and it pops error 52, I don’t know what to do; I’ve been searching for potential solutions, but the only ones I find are to use on windows, and I use OS from apple.
    Please help

      Hey Steven,

      I have the exact same problem except I have an iPhone 5c. Did you find a solution to your iPhone problem. I would really appreciate it.

        To be honest, I haven’t found a solution, and I probably won’t find one; I was told that this error comes up when one of the components inside the phone is broken, and it appears to be really hard to know which one it is.
        I was told that if you go to an Apple Store, they’ll try to fix it, and if they don’t and you’re on warranty they’ll replace your iPhone; unfortunately, I leave in a country with no Apple Store, so I have to sent my phone away and wait. Once I know if this works, I’ll post it in here

    Same here. Macbook Air and iPhone 5. Some sites discussed whether it could be a warranty issue. It’s the manufacturer’s fault the stupid error is there to begin with! And of course the sim isn’t matching any other regular phone I have floating about. Annoying.

  11. the same here, i have tried it with several computers and nothing worked
