Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
I have the original IPhone, the smaller one, I think it is 2 gigs. It has TONS of issues, but the newest one is driving me nuts. Throughout the day for several hours at a time it stops working. The screen flashes from black to apple and back. I cannot turn it off or restart it and taking the Sim card out has no effect. I have tried updating it, syncing it, and charging it, and none of them have any effect. Any ideas? Can I take it to the Apple Store? It is long past the warrenty expiration. Thanks for any help you can offer.
Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.
Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.
Step 1. Connect iphone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.
Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

Take it to the apple store, they will look at it, but it sounds like your logic board is going bad. They can be replaced, with ones bought from ebay or various online sites. Just be careful. Apple will see you a new one for 400 dollars if you want to go that route.

Sounds like the main board in the unit is bad. We have had a few that do the never ending reboot cycle and if they are in warranty, they swapped them out. Yours is not under warranty, so chances are you will have to buy a new phone. Sorry.
