Hold down the power button and home button for roughly 10 seconds sometimes it can take anything up to a 1minute. This almost always works. My froze and i tried this, worked first time.

When your screen goes off from holding them down. Plug you iphone into itunes and it will load and your all set.

Only do this if your iPhone is stuck at the Apple logo or you've had some major problems. If possible do a backup of your iPhone first by right-clicking it in the left sidebar in iTunes and clicking backup. It may take a while.

First turn off your phone, either by holding the power button until 'Slide to Power Off' pops up or if you're phone isn't booting, keep holding the Home & Lock buttons until the phone is completely off.

Now hold the home button while plugging your iPhone in to your computer (and keep holding it). iTunes should pop up saying that it's detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Press OK and then press Restore. As long as you've synced and backed up recently, all of your SMS, emails, and contacts should still be on the phone.

SOURCE: my apple iphone froze on the apple logo

Connect your phone to the computer and open iTunes. Hold both the home key and the power button until the iPhone turns off. Continue to hold them both for 5 more seconds. Release the power button but continue to hold the home button for 10 - 15 more seconds. I tunes should detect the phone in DFU mode. Restore firmware from this mode.

Iphone can unlock but the App screen is frozen


You may want to try resetting the phone by holding the home and power button simultaneously until the phone shuts down and the apple logo appears.
If that doesn't help, connect it to your computer and do a restore using iTunes.

My touch screen not working help


Try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until
phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo,
then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.

If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back
up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset
all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out
the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.

Hope this helps and if so please vote.

Thanks

  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:

1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears

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.
