Cause it is in restore mode. If you have a 2g use this tutorial to unlock your phone with the 3.0 update.

If you have a 3g use this one currently you can not unlock a 3g under the 3.0 firmware.

My phone is locked up and gets a box around whatever I touch on my home screen (time, date, slide to open, etc.)


You are in an accessibility mode called voice over. Using Siri voice command: open accessibility settings.

To navigate in voiceover mode, Three fingers will get you to scroll, Tapping once on an object Will select it, and double tapping will execute a change. See photos below

Slide to unlock is stuck


Hold down the power button and home button together until the phone restarts and the apple logo appears. Once rebooted, slide to unlock should work correctly.

My iphone screen is stuck. i tried to reset it so many times, by holding home & power buttons until apple logo appears. but still slider hangs. I can't turn the power off.


What happened before this? You mean you cannot enter the homescreen because you cannot slide to unlock? How about restoring it in iTunes? If you have a back up, just restore and then restore from back up.

Enter DFU mode first so iTunes will detect your iPhone is in recovery mode.

If iTunes doesn’t see your iPhone’s cry for help, you may need to invoke recovery mode. Although it’s an extremely helpful mode, how to get there isn’t very apparent. Read on for the how-to!
As arcane as “recovery mode” sounds, it’s actually very simple:
Disconnect your iPhone and turn it off by holding the “Sleep/Wake” button for about five seconds and then sliding the red slider. If your iPhone is already off, there’s no need to turn it on and then off again. Once it’s off, press and hold the “Home” button and plug your iPhone into a Mac or PC with iTunes installed. Keep holding the “Home” button until you see a dock cable pointing to the iTunes icon. iPhones running older software will display a yellow triangle and text which says “Please Connect to iTunes”. Once you see this image, you can release the Home button.


Open iTunes (if it’s not already open) and you will be told that “iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.” Click “OK” and you will be taken to the iPhone pane. Click “Restore” and you’re done, it’s that easy! Depending on the extent of your iPhone’s ills, it may take some time to do a full restore. Once you’re done, you should again have a perfectly working iPhone.
If this doesn’t solve your problem, you may need to restore using DFU (Direct Firmware Upgrade) mode. To enter this mode, plug in your iPhone and turn it off. Hold down the “Home” and “Sleep/Wake” buttons for about twelve seconds. You’ll briefly see the silver Apple logo and then your phone will appear to turn back off. Release the “Sleep/Wake” button but continue to hold the “Home” button until you see a message in iTunes stating that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Choose “Restore” and you should be fixed right up!
If this doesn’t fix your problem, your iPhone may require a visit to the Genius Bar

If iphone was stolen but password protected. How many attempts do they have to try to get in before iphone is disabled. Also, if they try to restore via computer and don't have same computer I have, will...


This only works if you have the older versio of software installed. This trick is not a high tech technique, but just a simple unlocking steps to do. This simple steps can be done because iPhone a flaw. Try to slide to unlock, tap emergency call, after that, double tap the home button, you will find yourself in iPhone favorites. From there, you could access other menu like address book, dial keypad, and voice mail.
If you are the owner and wants to avoid this security flaw, you could do the following.
1. In the iPhone home, go to Settings.
2. Click on General.
3. Click on Home Button.
4. Click on either “Home” or “iPod”.
By doing this, when someone is doing double tap, he/she will be redirected to the unlock screen (if you choose HOME).
OR TRY THIS
U can get rid of the password by putting the iphone in restore mode. Once in the restore mode, you can connect your iphone to itunes and phone in restore mode menu will pop up. Click ok, and hit restore . This will reset your iphone and all of your contents and the iphone will be back to its original factory settings.
You can put the iphone in restore mode by holding the home and power button at the same time (sometimes it only works if u hold the power button at first and then hold on to home button)

IPhone won't do anything!


Before you connect your iPhone or iTouch to iTunes.
Try and put the device into DFU Mode.
Plug your USB cord into your Device and Not into your computer.
Turn the Phone all the way off by holding the power button until the Red Bar appears and Slide it off..
Hold the "Home" Button Down for 5 seconds.
Then Push and Hold the "Power" Button while still holding the "Home" button and count to 7
Let go of the "Power" button while still holding the "Home" Button and Hold the Home button for approx 26 seconds.
The screen may or may not go blank with lines. No Worries!! now plug the USB into the computer with iTunes open. If the iphone is in DFU mode, iTunes will come up with a popup that says, "Itunes has detected an iPhone that is in recovery mode. Your must restore it"
Once this occurs, you can restore your device with any firmware by pressing "SHIFT" on your keyboard and "Clicking" Restore with your Mouse. Restore your device and let it mount to itunes.
If you are unlocking the device, I would suggest using "QuickPwn" you can get it HERE
You can download Apple iPhone Firmware HERE, when using quickpwn you will need to upgrade your firmware to 1,2_ 2.2_5G77...NOT 2.2.1
(TIP: Don't restore your iphone with custom firmware in iTunes. Restore with the original Firmware and Unlock or Jailbreak letting Quickpwn make the custom firmware....Also if you have a 3G do not ungrade in itunes to the 2.2.1 firmware, it changes the phone modem baseband and renders it "NOT" unlockable)

My iPhone is stuck at apple/loading page


U tried the safe mode? Get there by holding the sleep and home buttons down (same as rebooting) then once the phone is off, release the sleep button, but keep the home button down. iTune should then notify you that the iphone is connected in safe mode. Unfortunately I had the same problem ended up restoring the phone.
