iPhone Error 1002 – Problem and Solution

While I was traveling to my office today, I launched the browser on my iPhone and after a few minutes, my Smartphone automatically turned off. When I turned it on my phone went straight into the recovery mode, informing me that it does not recognize the IMEI or code number.

It was simply unbelievable for me and I decided to turn it off/on was. But, alas to my disappointment and horror, it displayed the same message.

So, then I decided to head back home, take a day off from the office and headed straight towards my PC for restoring my iPhone.
