Try the reboot sequence that you can initiate from the phone buttons. You can find it in the iphone support on the apple site, but I believe you push down the top right button (on/off) and hold it down while you depress and hold down the "home" button (round button-bottom front center). After, I believe< either 15 or 30 seconds it should turn off and then back-on(reboot)....then you can release the buttons.

How to master reset my Apple Iphone A1221?


Ok, I'm using my iphone 4 running 7.1.0 as my guide on this one, so I must not be using all the correct headings, but this should be close. Go to "settings->general->reset->Erase all content and settings". That should erase all personal data, contacts, songs, photos, etc... And reset all of the settings to factory default. If you think you may want to reverse this, or if you're planning on upgrading to a newer generation of iPhone and want to transfer your data then be sure you sync your phone with iTunes before doing this. Let me know if that does not work, there is another way to do it but it will require you to update to the latests version of iOS that your device can run, which will erase your jailbreak if you've installed one (not to be confused with re-lock your phone, if you paid to get your phone factory unlocked, and that does not mean a sim interposer, your phone should remain unlocked, no matter if you update iOS).

My Apple Iphone wont turn on. What to do when Iphone is freezing.


Hi.

What do I do if my Iphone does not start up anymore?

Here basic troubleshooting:

1 Try turning Iphone off, then back on. Turn it off by holding down the Sleep/Wakebutton until you see the red slider on display, then slide the finger across theslider. To turn iPhone back on, hold down theSleep/Wake button until the you see Apple logo on display.

2 Try pressing and holding the Home button for about ten seconds. This will close a frozen application or a stuck process. After this restart the iPhone following thesteps on point one.

3 If the above did not work, try doing a reset. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Homebutton at the same time for about 10 seconds. You may see ared "power off" slider appearing on screen, then you see the display going black. Donot release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until you see the Apple logo appearing on display. See picture below:

4 Reset all settings: Tap Settings>General>Reset> Reset All Settings. This will reset all settings to factory default. Data and media files will not be affected.

5 If that does not fix the problem, then try deleting all content and settings.
Tap Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Contents and Settings
This will delete all media and data. All settings will also be reset to default value.

6 Try restoring iPhone using the latest version of iTunes.
Connect iPhone to the computer using the data cable. When you see the IPhone in the Source list, click on Restore in the Summary tab.

If that did not work, repeat steps from 4 to 6 once more. If Iphone is still frozen, unplug it from pc, and try restarting the Iphone. Also reinstall Itunes and connect Iphone to pc again.

Ifrepeating the steps 4 to 6 did not fix your problem , then the Iphone isfaulty. In that case take it to a local Apple repair shop, or call Apple servicephone number listed on the user guide to arrange repair.

If the Iphone is faulty, sometimes reinstalling Firmware can fix it, but that, that is a risky procedure that will invalidate your warranty and damage the IPhone beyond repair. Better calling Apple before bricking the Iphone.
For this reason I will only post links on the argument.

On firmware update see:
