WHEN I TRY TO SEE RECENT CALL HISTORY THE I PHONE 3 GS REVERTS TO THE HOME SCREEN. IS THERE ANY WAY OF RESOLVING THIS?


hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use of.it could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

My iphone does not alert me to new emails unless I open my email. In other words, the email ap doesn't show the correct # of emails actually in the box and I don't know there are new ones unless I open it. Any suggestions?


First delete all email accounts from your IPhone except the one that you want to be updated without opening the email app.  IPhone can only automatically update one email account without accessing the email app.  Under settings on your IPhone, choose "mail, contacts calendars."  Then choose "Fetch new data." Then make sure to set "Push" to the  "ON." position.  Then select the time window for checking for new emails, "15 min 30 min manually."  Theoretically, your email app will check your email account or new emails every 15 minutes if you choose the 15 min option. The IPhone does not yet update emails every time you receive an email.

iPhone 3g White Apple Logo Screen of Death


Press and hold Sleep/Wake and Home until the iPhone resets.
When the Apple logo appears release Sleep/Wake, but do not release Home until you see the prompt to connect the iPhone to iTunes.

to restore the iPhone’s firmware, all your settings, all your media, and all your Apps.
I don't recommend you to do the offered backup, I've seen a few things more reliable then this backup, to say the least...

To avoid the screen of death, do not update all the features with the "Update All" feature, updates your features one at a time, avoid performing other tasks while updating your iPhone.
