    I have the same problem...I am within my 30 days today and called AT&T and they were incredibly rude insisted since stores are closed I have to wait until tommorrow and hope apple will fix this. This is passing the buck and I am so fed up with phone companies wanting to take our money but not wanting to fix any problems that could arise...What ever happend to good customer service???

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.

My Iphone 5c was working fine, its cracked up quit a bit but its been like that for a month or so now. I put my phone down and when i picked it back up about 7 minutes later the screen was black and w


If the front glass is what's cracked, the part called a digitizer, (which is a thin film layer that reads the skin's touch) could be faulty. WHen the glass is cracked, sometimes it's just a matter of time before the digitizer craps out on you.

Phone's screen won't turn on


Fist off i have to ask what Generation Iphone do you have? and is it haxed? if it's not haxed then try this, hold the phone under a lamp, not to close though. Call your Iphone and try tilting you phone at an angle to see if you can see the screen to answer the call. Your brightness settings may have gotten adjusted so low that you cant see anything. I have seen this happen before. If you plug it in to your CPU will it light up and show the charging icon? If not then you are going to have to hard reset the phone, this sucks i know but the phone is usless right now anyway. And you can just resync it with Itunes after. Hope this helps, Cali

CANT ANSWER IPHONE


you most likely have a hardware issue that needs to looked at by a pro at an apple store. you could also perform a reset by holding the power and home screen buttons until the phone resets.
