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.
This only resets the phone,no data will be lost.

Holding down the Power and Home buttons to do a hard reset will not harm your phone. You will lose the call you're on though. I am having the same issue where I'm on a call and after I'm done have a hard time getting the display to turn back on. Usually hitting Home a million times works, but so will a hard reset. Failing that, call up Apple to see if they can look at it/replace it.

Al setings after reset the iphone


What network was the phone on previously? Was this an unlocked phone? If this phone was unlocked with software (not factory unlocked phone) and you did a reset, then you lost the software unlock. You will have to have the phone unlocked again.

You question isn't too clear but on the other hand, if you just can't access network data, you may have to set the APN settings on the phones celluar data settings.

Hi, i have an iphone 3gs, and has unlocked it. but yesterday i updated the iphone with new version from itunes, and after updating my iphone is not working atall. its shows as emergency call.


An unlocked phone must NEVER be updated. Updating the software ios takes out the unlocked version and replaces it with an Apple/AT&T locked version

So your gonna have to get it unlocked again, and this time. don't ever update it. Sync is ok, but never update.

Hi i get no service on my iphone


Have you tried to unlock the iPhone? This is a common problem if the iPhone is jailbroken or unlocked.

Kindly try the steps below:

* Go to Settings:General:Reset.

* Click Reset Network Settings

* Enter your passcode if you have created one.

* Click the red button: Reset Network Settings

* The iPhone will take a minute to shut down, then it will reboot.


- If these steps will not work, then follow the steps below:

1. Start with iphone with no service (jailbroken and unlocked)

2. Use iBrickr to load Launchctl GUI (Application -> Browse Application -> Launchctl GUI)

3. Open Launchctl GUI, look for the CommCenter line. If it is red - go to step 5. If it is black - proceed to the next step.

4. Select the CommCenter line, you will see a list of 3 options, select the unload -w, and press ok to confirm, the CommCenter should now be red in the list.

5. Fully restart your iPhone.

6. Open Launchctl GUI, look for the CommCenter line. It should be red if you did the above steps correctly.

7. Select the CommCenter line, you will see a list of 3 options, select the load -w, and press ok to confirm, the CommCenter should now be black in the list.

8. Press the home button. Your phone should now display 'searching' then display your network with full signal.

NOTE: Once your iPhone is working fine, open iBrickr again, go to applications, and delete the Launchctl GUI from your phone by clicking the red (-)minus buttons on the right of the screen.

Thank you and good luck!
