Holding the home and lock button at the same time reboots the phone. Press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds, the apple logo should come on then may go dark. Depending on how much data you have on your phone it could take a few minutes to boot up, just like your computer would.

SOURCE: my iphone wont charge

I had this exact problem too - same as the first two posts anyway.

It seems to be just a software issue and was easily resolved for me with a full power off and reboot. Here is how to do that safely.

Plug in the phone using the wall socket charger, leave it for a few hours to get a charge (i know it doesn't look like its charging). Later, press the on/off button. The battery icon appears with just a thin red line. Let it go back to black. Then press the the on/off button and the menu button simultaneously for about 8 seconds. A red button should appear on the screen with a question asking if you want to power off the phone. Say yes. (I think it was a slide bar, but can't remember now.) Wait a few secs while the phone powers off. Then remove the power plug from the phone. Now reinsert the power plug. After a few (worrying) seconds of nothing, a white Apple logo appears in the middle of the screen, a few more seconds and the iphone main menu appears. No data has been lost, no settings are altered, and best of all, the battery shows a full charge and seems to be back to normal again.

Try each of the following resets:

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.
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.
If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, 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.


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

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: iphone turns off after apple logo

If you have tried doing a master reset on the phone, it sounds as if you are having a hardware problem with the phone, such as some sort of damage that might have come from a drop or something. By the way I can fix the iphone glass screens, and digitizers.

Hi, this sounds like it's not as much of a charging problem as it is a software problem.
This sort of situation can happen when the software on your phone becomes corrupted. The phone will try to reboot over and over like what you're describing.
The only way to fix this problem is to do a complete restore from Apple. First, connect your phone via USB to the computer you regularly sync it with and then start iTunes. Next, place your phone in front of you. You'll need to put your phone in safe mode (also called DFU mode) to do a successful restore.
To do this: 1.] Hold down the sleep button for exactly five seconds. 2.] While continuing to hold the sleep button, take another finger and hold down the home button (the one below your screen) for ten seconds. 3.] While continuing to hold the home button, let go of the sleep button and continue holding the home button for another ten seconds.
iTunes should automatically detect that your phone has gone into DFU mode and will then request to do a full restore.
Good luck!

1. Connect your iPhone to iTunes.
2. Hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
3. After exactly 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button for 10 seconds or until iTunes pops up a message saying that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. At this point, click OK, then click "Restore" in iTunes.

Iphone 2g not starting back up after reboot..


When the device is locked up like this hold down the lock and home buttons. After a few seconds the device will turn off, immediately let go of both buttons. Now press down and hold the home button. Hit the power/lock button one time. Continue holding the home button until the phone boots up. It will need to be connected to iTunes for recovery at this point.

Iphone wont turn on after master reset


Sometimes the iPhone can lockup and stop working or just show the Apple symbol and not do anything else. But panic not, normally an app has caused the phone to crash and it needs to be restarted.
Here’s how you do it:

Sometimes just pressing and holding the home button for about 5 seconds, can help. But if not try this:
Press and hold the iPhone’s Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for several seconds, or until you see the apple logo on the screen.

I have a feeling that when you ran the battery down it is now struggling to get and hold a charge.
If you have a friend with a similar battery perhaps try that, or go to a mobile store and ask them to try a new battery for you.
