    hi rooftopswat....

    before offering a solution, i'd like to ask a couple of questions...

    have you jailbroken or unlocked your phone at any time, or do you still have the factory settings?

    do you regularly synch your phone and/or keep a backup of all your photos, contacts etc...?

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.
Then re-sync it with iTunes. Go to Apple's website and download the lastest version of iTunes.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Frozen fuzzy screen i4


Hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home button until your see the White Apple appear on the phone and that should reset it without the phone losing any information. If that doesn't work you might need to put the phone into DFU mode and restore with iTunes.

1st generation phone is frozen on apple screen, then if it goes off, it returns with a plug and lightning bolt with red in the battery, when I plug it in it goes back to the apple sign and stays frozen


Your phone is either corrupted or the battery was just drained. Plug iphone to pc, restart computer while iphone is plugged. Or What you have to do is to enter dfu mode so iTunes can detect an iPhone in recovery mode and then prompt you to restore. You will lose all your files when you do this but if you have a backup in iTunes then you're good to go. To enter dfu mode, just press both power and home buttons simultaneously for exactly 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, release the power but keep holding home then wait until iTunes detects your iphone and prompt you to restore.

Tried downloading mms app from cydia and phone is frozen


Apps from non-Apple places typically don't go over well. You'll need to do a back up and restore (as new) with iTunes. AT&T has released official MMS as of 09/25, please use it and be sure you have the latest 3.1 software (it will download automatically in back up and restore). Always be cautious with 3rd party app stores, half my calls every day are about sites that crashed people's iPhones.

Frozen Apple Logo


if itunes recognizes the phone use the restore option if not you need to perform a force recovery mode. to do this hold power and home screen buttons until the screen resets when it does keep holding the home screen button and plug in the phone to the computer after a few seconds itunes should see a phone in recovery mode and force you to do a restore. if that does not work you might have a hardware problem and will need to go to a store.

hello again!

try to restore option first on your iphone.

step 1: Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed iTunes 7.4 or later from www.apple.com/itunes. .

Step 2: Connect iPhone or iPod touch to your computer.

Step 3: In iTunes, select iPhone or iPod touch in the Source pane and click the Summary tab.

Step 4: Click "Check for Update." iTunes will tell you if there's a newer version of the iPhone or iPod touch software available.

Step 5: Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore iPhone or iPod touch to its original settings (this erases all data on iPhone or iPod touch). Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
