IPhone/iPod Touch problems booting

This is a common problem these days people turn thier iPhones off and when they power them on they jsut get the apple logo for a while then it shuts off, or it will just be a blank screen, or it will pop up with an iTunes symbol and a USB cord. To fix all of these you just need to restore the Apple device. Plug it into the computer that you last synced it with. Then access iTunes on the computer, after a few moments it should detect the iPhone. It may say that it is in recovery mode or it may just pull it up like normal. Either way you just need to click the button that says restore, once you do this your computer will download a file about 200 MB to iTunes and then after it downloads it will ask you to confirm the restore, just click agree and next through all of this. Then your iPhone will start showing different screens. This is normal. Just wait and after about 20 minutes it will say "restore successful" if you get an error message in the 1600's just search youtube for a solution, there are tons of different remedies to fix these. Then it will ask you to restore from back-up. Just click the most recent time you synced it. This will put it back to the way it was last time you synced. There you go, you shoudl be fine. This will usually happen to Jailbroken devices. MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF YOUR DATA IS BACKED UP BEFORE RESTORING! IT WILL ERASE ALL UNSYNCED DATA! This will also un-jailbreak your device if you had it previously jailbroken. Also T-Mobile/ Vodaphone users will need to re-unlock the firmware. If you dont know how to do this search craigslist in your area, people will charge you anywhere from $10-$25 to do this for you and it will only take about a half hour.

Good Luck!

my i pad is stuck in sleep mode

Perform a hard reset: Press both the Power and Home buttons and hold them down. Keep holding both buttons down until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. The logo should appear between ten and twenty seconds after you start holding the buttons. After the Apple logo appears, your iPhone or iPad will boot back up normally.
Charge your iPhone: Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
Get iPhone into Recovery Mode: Turn off you iPhone and just plug the USB cable into computer > Hold the HOME button when you connect USB to iPhone > Release the HOME button when you see the iTunes logo.

why wont my iphone turn on???????? please help!!!!

Try these resets:

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.
If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.

Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Frozen Apple Logo

if itunes recognizes the phone use the restore option if not you need to perform a force recovery mode. to do this hold power and home screen buttons until the screen resets when it does keep holding the home screen button and plug in the phone to the computer after a few seconds itunes should see a phone in recovery mode and force you to do a restore. if that does not work you might have a hardware problem and will need to go to a store.

Phone just keep showing logo and vibrating

Well that is a common problem we get here at Apple. We wouldn't be able to offer support online. The best way to take care of this problem is by going to your local Apple Store and hey will be able to swap your iPhone to a new one.
Thank you, Apple Care Technical Support Nick M.
