Iphone uses wi-fi for first preference to connect to internet then drops to 3G if wi-fi not available then finally E (Edge) if you do not have either of those showing on your phone then it may be you are in an area where not even edge is available... try checking in different locations inside/outside your home.. down the street a ways or even a different part of your town. If you still cannot get at least the E on your phone maybe your service provider does not provide sufficient coverage for your location.. this does happen

Try connecting it to iTunes, and click on restore. If that doesn't work, try holding the power button and home button at the same time until the Apple logo shows up.

I just cleared my iphone. It wont boot to the screen where it says to connect to itunes. it starts up with the apple logo, then shows that rotateing thing over the apple logo, then it stops rotateing, and...


To resolve this issue, you will need to restore your iPhone to factory settings This means any data (music, movies, contacts, etc.) will be erased and the iPhone brought back to it's factory settings (like the day you got it).
To do this, follow the steps below:
1. Make sure your iPhone is disconnected and powered off. If it's not already, hold down the power button until the "Slide to Power Off" message is displayed and swipe to turn off.
2. Connect the USB end of the data cable to your computer, do not connect the other end just yet.
3. Connect the other end of the data cable to the iPhone and immediately press down & hold the "Home" button.
4. Continue to hold down "Home" button , until the iTunes logo appears and the USB connection is displayed on the iPhone's screen.
5. Open iTunes (if it hasn't opened automatically) and a message stating that it has found an iPhone that is in recovery mode. (If you don't get this message and the iPhone just boots like normal, then the timing between connecting the iPhone and holding the home button wasn't fast enough. Try again from step #1).
6. Click the "Restore" button and iTunes will automatically download and install the latest iOS version for your iPhone.
The process should take about 20-45 mins, depending on your internet connection. Once complete, the iPhone will reboot and will be restored to factory settings.
Since iTunes requires that all data be synced through there, if you have made any backups to your iPhone, you'll be able to re-sync your information back to your iPhone at this time.

Wierd connection wire and itunes picture on screen


Try a hard reset:

  1. Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
  2. Hold both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, Ignore the "Slide to power off" and keep holding
  3. The iPhone should now shutdown automatically - (fade to black)
  4. Turn the iPhone back on by hitting the sleep/wake button.
  5. You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.

Then plug in your phone to a computer with the latest version of iTunes. Do a full restore to the latest firmware.
