The picture of the Pineapple means you were probably trying to use the PwnageTool or WinPwn to unlock your iPhone. If your iPhone had 2.0 or later then you will need to hard reset into Restore mode by holding the HOME and POWER button until the phone is off then continue to hold the power and home button until the iTunes logo pops up. Then restore your phone (all music, apps, messages, contacts will be deleted)
The iPhone Dev Team should have released a 2.0 or later unlock tool just today (1st Jan 2009)

Frozen fuzzy screen i4


Hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home button until your see the White Apple appear on the phone and that should reset it without the phone losing any information. If that doesn't work you might need to put the phone into DFU mode and restore with iTunes.

My iPhone 4 is a few months old and last night it suddenly stopped charging. Of course i didn't realize it until my phone died during the day today and i tried plugging it in and wouldn't ch


The charge adapter maybe faulty.
If your cell phone is a few months old, then it would be still under warranty. Take it back to the place where you purchased it and have it repaired or replaced under warranty.

My i phone wont turn on i try to restarted now it wont turn on i try to hold the home button and the power button a pineapple apears and it just stays like thet


This may not fix it if you "jail broke"it:::

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

Reset


To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

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 10 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


More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Ok i have a problem i bought a iphone from my friend last night so he restarted everything and its been on the same screen for the whole night last night i dont know what to do i tryed restarting and...


. Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart.
when you see the silver Apple logo you can let go of the buttons.
and then try the phone and see if it is ok now
good luck

Iphone camera


Up until last night, I was dealing with this same problem. After a lot of searching I finally found a solution that actually works and it is by far the simplest fix.
Try pinching the iphone around the area of the camera, don't use too much force, you don't want to break anything. After doing this my camera immediately worked again. I believe its because something came loose. I hope this helps!
