You should start over. You can't hurt it, just restore it in Itunes, and start again. but before you do unplug it and reboot and see what happens. Good luck! merry christmas!

I reset my iphone 3g..and it says that it would only take about an hour..but after an hour in didnt start hanged shows only the logo from the screen. how can i fix this?pls help..thx alot

Hi, How do you reset you iphone? Do you want to restore to original factory setting or restore to the back up. Everytime you connect your iphone to computer which have Itunes, Itunes will try to sync the change between Itunes and your Iphone. Before doing that, Itunes always create a back up. If you want, you can restore to early good point back up. There is other way to restore your iphone. Google and download your iphone firmware, save it. When click Restore in Itunes, press Shift key at the same time, it will ask you the firmware you want to restore, browser where you saved and restore you iphone to the firmware you want. Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

You erased all data, so you will need to:
1. Reconnect iPhone to the computer
2. Choose Restore
3. Choose the last saved profile, or whichever one you'd like and restore to that profile.

Next time you want to erase the amt of pic's on the phone, just use the tab in iTunes and deselect the folders you'd like to remove then sync and you'll have made room.

Hope this helps,

Restoring your iPhone should help regain full functionality but please beaware this will completely wipe your iPhone memory so be sure to do a full sync and backup before you do anything.

  1. With your iPhone on connect it to your P.C/Mac using the USB cable
  2. Turn your iPhone off
  3. Press and hold the home button while turning your iPhone on
  4. Your PC/Mac should then detect your iPhone in "DFU mode".
  5. iTunes will also detect your iPhone in "DFU mode" and allow you to select restore.
This can take up to 2 hours so be patient.

I reset all settings on my iphone 3G it took over an hour after it was finish all it does is showing the apple logo and it would not go past that. How can I fix it? Can someone help!

I think the only thing you can do now is restore your iPhone to the factory setting. If I can chat with you then I can show you every steps. But you can check on the iPhone manual or just connect to iTune choose restore and do what it say on the screen. Good luck and hope this help ;)

Did a factory restore yesterday but now i phone only displaying apple symbol, periodically showing "wheel" (as though thinking about something) and then turning off and straight back this the...

hmm it might be, but 4 hours is way too long.

I'd suggest putting it in DFU mode

connect to PC or MAC

hold sleep/wake+Home button for 10 seconds

release sleep/wake but CONTINUE HOLDING HOME

after a while itunes will say it's detected an iphone in recovery mode. Restore from here.
