Did you try to shut it down and after 5 seconds wait power it on again?
Is your phone unlocked? Which firmware version is installed on it?

Frozen touch pad

I had the similar problem. Found this suggestion on the web to reset iPhone 3G to it's original settings. You may have to restore your media and data files after resetting. It's the only way out for me since I can't get beyond the "Apple Logo" thingy, and I am too lazy to bring it down to the Apple Store.

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.


Good luck.

How to restore a troublesome iPhone 3G!

If you have an iPhone 3G that is causing you problems or errors when you are trying to restore then hopefully this information can be useful to you.

If you are struggling to get your computer or iTunes to recognize your iPhone then put the device into recovery mode. To put the device into recovery mode, plug the iPhone into your computer, open iTunes, then hold the sleep button and the home button together for ten seconds before releasing the sleep button. Contine to hold the home button until iTunes pops up and tells you that a device has been detected that needs restoring.

Click restore and iTunes will download and restore the latest firmware to your device for you. Once the restore completes you can set up a new phone or restore al settings from a backup of a previous phone.

If after restoring you get an error message and your iPhone displays a plug into computer logo then we must go through some more steps to get your iPhone going.

This section is for users of 32 bit Windows, which is the majority of people. Download the iRecovery and libusb-32 package and install the libusb-32 file. Move the irecovery.exe file to C:irecoveryirecovery.exe

From your start menu go to Run and type cmd. Press enter and you will be presented with a black box with a command prompt. At the command prompt type C:irecoveryirecovery.exe -s and press enter.

Once your iPhone has been found you will have another command prompt. Now type the following commands:

setenv auto-boot true

Once again reboot your iPhone, holding sleep button and power button until the Apple logo displays, this time your phone should boot up into the normal iPhone interface.

With a bit of luck you have just restored your iPhone 3G!

My phone is frozen. what do i do?

As I've discovered with most apple devices, when they freeze up like this, all you can really do is let the battery die. Then when the device shuts off, plug it in and start it up. That usually seems to work with just about anything that has an internal battery.

I forgot the password for my iphone

If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.

1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
7. Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone’s setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode.

You should then follow these steps below to activate the passcode again.
  1. Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. In the Settings screen click on General
  4. In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
  5. This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
  6. You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
  7. Press the Home button to return to the main menu.
