IPhone 5S screen and digitizer are broken, can I still back it up to my computer?


yes you can, just connect it to the computer. Don't let it update to IOS 8.2, because it will ask you for the code on the iPhone screen.
Then iTunes will backup your phone.
At least I hope you already did backup it at least once.
I don't know what happens when you connect the phone to iTunes for the first time, because that was so long ago.
Success.

My iphone keeps saying I need iSO 7.0 how can I get it and for free


Tammy, All Apple updates are for free, so that is one.
When connected to the net with a WiFi router you can follow the next steps. Don't do an upgrade while on cellular, because it will take ages and cost your data limit.
First make a backup of the whole phone, on the computer. Or when you have enough space in the iCloud, backup to the cloud.
If your iPhone is telling, update, you can update, by going to the settings icon. (initially it was on the first screen.) It even will have a little red 1 on top of it. press the settings icon. then scroll down a little to general and then press update. BUT PLEASE. make sure your battery is completely charged or the phone is connected to a power source. When you don't have a WiFi connection, you can use iTunes on the Windows PC or MAC.
Connect the phone to the computer and start iTunes, (if it did not start in the first place)
Then iTunes will tell you, you can update. First let iTunes make a full backup, then tell it can do the update.
It can take up to 15 minutes, but after that the phone should work fine.

If I'm not clear enough, or something goes wrong, please check the Apple support page for the iPhone.

My iphone 3 is not working only the apple sign is coming while charging the phone


1. Turn the iPhone off by holding the button on the top of the iPhone for 10 seconds, until the screen is black.
2. Plug your USB Cable into the back of your computer (the back USB ports can be higher power then your front ones, if your using a laptop, just plug into any one) 3. Open iTunes on your computer, make sure its fully updated (it will ask you automatically to update)
3. Now hold down the Home button on the front of your phone (The button on the front of the iPhone, at the bottom, has a square inside of it, your thumb will fit into the button to press it down)
4. While holding down the home button, plug it into the computer, and keep holding down the home button 5. Eventually you are going to see a connect to iTunes screen on the iPhone display, this may take 30-45 seconds. (A USB Cord with an arrow pointing towards the iTunes Logo)
6. Once you see that screen, let go of the button 7. A Message should pop up in iTunes saying it has detected the iPhone in recovery mode and you must restore to continue 8. Click ok, and there should be a Restore button in the middle of iTunes on your computer 9. Click this and it will say it needs to erase everything and update. You must do this, there may be backup files for your iPhone on your computer, if there are, it will automatically ask you when its done to load those onto your phone.

IPHONE 3G 16GB shows lock symbol and itunes usb connected(locked)


Unforunatly when you hook the phone up to Itunes it updates and relocks itself. This is Apple and At&t's way of keeping it locked. You are going to have to get the phone unlocked again.
