The last row of icons which is the bottom row with Phone iPod etc?
It sounds as though your digitizer is bad, the iphone digitizer is delicate and seems often goes bad.
does your unlock screen work?
the bottom off the screen handles the unlock and bottom icons.
if your unlock switch works then you may just have a software problem going on.
reboot your phone by pressing and holding the power and home buttons until the apple appears.
when it reboots see if it works properly, if not you may have a bad digitizer.
is your iphone a 2G or a 3G?

DFU means Device Firmware Update. If a restore using Recovery Mode doesn't work you will want to use DFU Mode as a last resort. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore

For your convenience this tutorial is available in video format also. Click the Watch It button to view the tutorial!








To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

Step Three
After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

The iPhone screen will remain black like this:

NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

Hi, this is a feature for the iPhone. You can just zoom it back out again by double tapping the screen with 3 fingers. To switch the feature off, go settings, accessability and turn "zoom"to off. If it is on, double tap with 3 fingers zooms and same zooms out.

15) Maximize Battery LifeThere is a separate sensor situated right above the earpiece, that detects ambient light. The iPhone uses this sensor only once per session, just as you unlock the handset. But if you cover the sensor as you unlock the phone, you will trikc the handset into thinking it’s in a dark room, and it will power down the screen brightness.

Tap on Done when you’re finished
20) Make a Call from SafariIf you find any phone numbers in Safari you would like to call, you do not need to jump to the phone component. Just tap on the number, and the iPhone will dial it for you immediately

Add icon to iPhone5


Any app that is on your iPhone will have an icon on your screen. Make sure to swipe through all the "pages" of your screen to make sure they aren't being put on a different page. If you had the apps on a previous iPhone and are putting it onto a new one, or have apps in your iTunes account but didn't actually buy them on your phone, you may need to re-download the apps onto the phone either the App Store app or plug your phone into the computer and re-download them from iTunes.

My iphone icons are to big for the screen. How do


From the home screen, tap Settings (yeah, if you can find it — but at least they can’t delete that or any built-in application).
From Settings, hit General, then choose Reset.

From the Reset menu, choose Reset Home Screen Layout. When it asks you to confirm, tap the big red Reset Home Screen button.

No message icon on the home screen.


You can try this: While you are in the main menu, click the menu button (at the right of the green call button), and select the "Show All" (can be different according to your phone language), after you do that, your messages, and other hidden icons should be seen as gray icons. Now you can unhide the icons you want, then you can unselect the "Show All" option again.

The address icon does not initiate on the home screen. However, I can access a contact database in the search mode.When the track ball is depress nothing happens over the contact icon.


Try going into your applications screen, Which can also be the home screen if you have your theme set for it. Try clicking on your blackberry button, the one to the left of your trackball, which will bring up a small menu, scroll to show all and click your track ball. Then you need to find the address book icon and click your blackberry button. If hide is checked in the menu uncheck it by clicking your track ball again. This should unhide it and make it available on your screen again.
