You should be able to connect back to iTunes and then "restore" the iphone. As long as you have a recent backup you should be fine

    How to master reset my Apple Iphone A1221?

    Ok, I'm using my iphone 4 running 7.1.0 as my guide on this one, so I must not be using all the correct headings, but this should be close. Go to "settings->general->reset->Erase all content and settings". That should erase all personal data, contacts, songs, photos, etc... And reset all of the settings to factory default. If you think you may want to reverse this, or if you're planning on upgrading to a newer generation of iPhone and want to transfer your data then be sure you sync your phone with iTunes before doing this. Let me know if that does not work, there is another way to do it but it will require you to update to the latests version of iOS that your device can run, which will erase your jailbreak if you've installed one (not to be confused with re-lock your phone, if you paid to get your phone factory unlocked, and that does not mean a sim interposer, your phone should remain unlocked, no matter if you update iOS).

    How to Restore iPhone 3G to Factory Settings

    Make sure you are on the screen that holds your Settings icon. That is the icon with gears pictured in it. Touch the Settings icon.

    In the Settings menu, touch the line that says General. It also has a picture of gears.

    Scroll down the General page and you will see a line that says Reset. Select Reset.

    This screen will show you several options you can reset including setting, home screen, keyboard dictionary, network settings and location warning. However, to erase all data, you will select the line that says Erase All Content and Settings. When you select it, a box will pop up with a red button saying Erase iPhone. There is also a warning saying it will delete all media and data and will take up to an hour. Touch the red button and your iPhone will format itself back to factory settings.

    Tips & Warnings

    Back up all data you want to save on your computer.


    To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:

    1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
    2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears.

    iPhone Recovery Mode

    3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven't.
    4. Run and open iTunes if it's not already opened yet.
    5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
    6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
    7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it's hardware related.

    There is another mode called DFU mode which does not load the iBoot, and commonly used to downgrade the firmware and restore custom IPSW.

    Use the link to below for DFU

    Hope it helped.

    Iphone 3G Erase All content and settings problem

    DFU means Device Firmware Update. If a restore using Recovery Mode doesn't work you will want to use DFU Mode as a last resort. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore

    videothumb.pngWatch the Video!
    For your convenience this tutorial is available in video format also. Click the Watch It button to view the tutorial!

    To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

    Step One
    Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

    Step Two
    Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

    Step Three
    After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

    The iPhone screen will remain black like this:

    NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

    SMS keyboard not appearing

    Hi , The solution I given is for unlocked iphone, reset the content will not jail break your iphone. But make sure that when you connect to itunes after reset, select new iphone rather then restoring backup option. I am not so sure about the 3rd party application weather it remains but my feeling is resetting the content shall not disturb any other application, just u can give a try and pls let me know the result , anyways you will be having installer that can reinstall the application back. And dude , there is application which block junk messages, pls find it and install so tht you may not face such scenario. cheers, Ravindra.
