Try to reset the phone:


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.

Hi you can still jailbreak your phone with redsn0w 0.5.6b5 and you need the 4.1 ipsw for your phone download redsn0w and the ipsw files,start red sn0w when it asks for the firmware point it to your iphone software you downloaded and click next when ready.
when you get the options to download cydia just tick that box and battery percentage not ipad bootloader you already have that, then click next and follow the instuctions on the screen once redsnow has finished and your phone has rebooted install cydia with the app that has been put on by redsn0w once installed it is jailbroken you can also unlock if need be.
hope this helps.

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.

Iphone 3G stuck on emergency call mode..


Try to reinstall a jailbroken version of the iPhone OS.
Do not (ever) use reset to factory if you need the device to be jailbroken to function (e.g. in case you are using an officially unsupported operator/plan)

Cydia won't load


You need a program like iphonebrowser or ssh with winscp.


Go to /private/var/lib/apt/lists
and delete all the files in /root/private/var/lib/apt/lists/ except for the partial subfolder. Do not delete Partial folder. Reboot phone and restart cydia and it should work just fine.

My iphone doesn't turn on


Try doing a factory restore using iTunes or QuickPWN and if you need to jailbreak it again, be careful what apps you download from cydia...some of them cause problems with jailbroken iPhones, just research online for which ones are notorious for problems
