Apparently your phone was in recovery mode. It reverted to normal mode when pressed the power and home button together. A failed software update may have caused this or..did you try jailbreaking or something?However if you want to ward off this problem in future update your phone with the latest firmware. Apple has recently released firmware version 2.2.1. Since I have updated, my Iphone works faster than ever and I have had fewer safari crashes too.

Hope that helps,
Sai.

You most likely have a hardware issue that needs to looked at by a pro at an apple store. you could also perform a reset by holding the power and home screen buttons until the phone resets.

My iphone 5s wont slide open it rings i have restored it it just wont open.


Well, based on the wording of your question, I assume that when you attempt to slide your lockscreen away to unlock the device, that the lockscreen doesn't slide or respond to your finger movement. If touching the screen gives you no response at all, (which you can test by sliding to power off after holding the home button as an alternative) then your issue is a malfunctioning digitizer.

The digitizer is the touch sensitive glass component of the phone, and is attached to the LCD screen on the inside of the phone. These can be ordered on amazon.com as one piece, and you can either replace it yourself or find someone who could replace it for you. If you don't wish to go through all of that trouble, then you may want to consider either replacing the phone, or bringing it into an Apple retail store. If your phone is still under warranty, then the Apple store may just give you a new phone free of charge (which is what happened to me when my iPhone 5 malfunctioned.)

Hopefully this helps, good luck!

Phone's screen won't turn on


Fist off i have to ask what Generation Iphone do you have? and is it haxed? if it's not haxed then try this, hold the phone under a lamp, not to close though. Call your Iphone and try tilting you phone at an angle to see if you can see the screen to answer the call. Your brightness settings may have gotten adjusted so low that you cant see anything. I have seen this happen before. If you plug it in to your CPU will it light up and show the charging icon? If not then you are going to have to hard reset the phone, this sucks i know but the phone is usless right now anyway. And you can just resync it with Itunes after. Hope this helps, Cali

try rsetting the iPhone:


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 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

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.

Cant see the lost call numbers


Hmmm. One can filter the display of various types of phone calls. Check your setting for the Messages log.

1. Open "Messages"
2. Open the "Full Menu"
3. Select "Options" (this is specific to messages, not the "Options" from the main menu which is for the phone in general).
4. Scroll through all the display filters and options and you should find the one you want.

or

1. Messages
2. Menu
3. View Folder
4. this allows you to view various types of calls.

Good luck.
