Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

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.

My phone has just shut down for no reason (battery was 60% +) and shows no signs of life even when plugged in to charger- any ideas?

Try a hard reset: Hold menu button and powerbutton together for 5sec. If that doesn't restart it, take it to the apple store. If you're out of warranty, try to replace the logic board there are guides that show you how : iPhone Repair Guide

All main menu icons dissapeared while installing an app from cydi

I would do a full reset on the iphone which you can get to by going to the settings and scroll to the bottom and it should give you a reset option this will delete everything but assuming you make a backup whilst in itunes you should be able to re synch it as far as contacts and anything else you want from your itunes afterwards.

Iphone won't show up as an icon in my computer.

If you have a password lock on your phone and it is turned on then the computer won't recognise the phone. It will only show in My Computer if this is turned off.

Voice message icon showing but no message

You can contact orange and have them refresh your voice mailbox but if that doesn't work you can connect your phone to iTunes on a computer and restore the software. Set up as new and see if the issue persist. If it is fixed you can try to restore from your back up. If the issue comes back when you put your information on there, then you will need to set up as new
