Iphone touch lock

My iphone started acting very strange about week ago.
When i switch screen on everything works.. until i don't touch it for 1-2 sec. then screen will not respond to touch anymore.. all the rest of programs and other buttons are working fine..

And when i switch screen off and on again.. it will let me again use the screen until i don't touch it for 1-2sec..

Would be really great if anyone can help me find solution to it..

I tried already rebooting, rest all settings and even restored it to 1.1.1
Nothing.. all the time the same..

SOURCE: My iPhone is disabled for 4,566,757 mintues, HELP!

The only way is to reflash a new firmware and wipe the code as well as the phone clean.
To do this start itunes on your computer. Then connect your phone to the computer. Once itunes detected your phone hold the POWER and the HOME buttons down at the same time for about 10 seconds. Once the phone flashes off, let go of the POWER button and keep holding the HOME button until you see a message on the itunes telling you that your phone is detected and needs to be RESTORED. Follow directions and it will do its job. I appreciate your positive vote. Thanks

SOURCE: 3G Iphone won't charge

If you are comfortable with opening devices you can take a multimeter to the battery. If the phone doesn't turn on if your battery has 3.7V or more, you have a logic board issue. It should also boot at least for 5 sec if you plug it into the charger when it is disconnected from the battery. If it also doesn't respond to that, and you are out of warranty,  the logic board needs to be replaced. There are iPhone Repair guides that show you how.  If you're under warranty apple will replace it without problems with an error like this.

Connect your phone to the computer and open iTunes. Hold both the home key and the power button until the iPhone turns off. Continue to hold them both for 5 more seconds. Release the power button but continue to hold the home button for 10 - 15 more seconds. I tunes should detect the phone in DFU mode. Restore firmware from this mode.

I forgot my iPhone Passcode. What can I do to unlock it?

iPhone setting:*
- Auto-Lock: 1 Minute;*
- Passcode Lock: On, require passcode immediately, after 15 min or 4 hours etc;*
- Network: Turn 3G Off

Scenario 1: Home screen is active with screen on*
1. Press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2. Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key, then slide to unlock
5. bypassed passcode

Scenario 2:*
1. On the screen of being asked to enter passcode, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2.*Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, DO NOT touch any key on the screen, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
5. Slide to power off
6. press power button to turn on iPhone
7.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key on the right bottom corner, then slide to unlock
8. bypassed passcode

1. When Network setting changes to Enable 3G: ON, "3G" signal shows up, passcode CANNOT be passed through
Go to a underground parking lot or a lift where 3G signal is weak, when 3G signal switches to "E" (Edge), passcode CAN be passed through following above steps
2. When no 3G or Edge signal, above steps don't work

Seems passcode security is related to network status
Possible security hole under Edge

Iphone hangs during standby mode.

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.

I forgot my passwoed for my iphone


This is a double solution. Maybe even a 1 and a halfer.

I have an iphone myself and am compulsive about following iphone news since I'm a huge security nerd. I lock my phone. Always. But have you seen the option to make an emergency call? That in itself is a huge security flaw, or in your case, a saving grace.

So here is the deal:
  • You can NOT bypass the security code entirely
  • you MUST reset your phone (scroll to the bottom for directions)
  • BUT you can access all your texts/phone numbers/etc, first with the exploit I am about to show you.
Here are some directions, but keep in mind, this only responds to firmware versions PRIOR TO 2.1.3 (the latest one). The original firmware that came with your phone and any downloads up until the one they released a few weeks ago still have this vulnerability.

  1. Turn off/on your iPhone and move the slider to get to the "Enter Passcode" screen
  2. Tap "Emergency Call" button on the bottom left
  3. Double-tap the home button
  4. This will pull up all contacts in your Favorite list
  5. Tap on the blue arrow next to the contact's name to full access to email, SMS, Safari, etc.
Jot down those numbers you want to save before you have to do the reset.

  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven’t.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related.
Hope this helps!!

Iphone Freeze

My iphone froze up today, it just gave me a half lit screen and I couldn't even turn it off, nothing would work.  I held the home button and power off button at the same time for several seconds and this seemed to make it worse.  I did the same thing again, and it restarted the phone.  Nothing lost except for 3/4 of the battery life for some strange reason.  All is good, my phone is back!

My iphone does not turn on

********************** **************************
********************** SOLUTION!!!! **************************
********************** **************************

If you just see an apple logo or your phone does not turn on, there is a software problem and you will need to restore your iPhone. I didn't want to hear it, because now I had to redo everything; but it's the only solution.

Put your iPhone into recovery mode.

To put your iPhone in recovery mode:
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your computer, make sure your sound is turned on and not muted.
Step 2: Hold the top corner button for two seconds. You should hear a sound.
Step 3: Now, still holding the top power button, immediately press the home button and hold both buttons for 10 seconds. You should hear another sound from your computer.

Step 4: Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Meanwhile, continue holding the Home button and open iTunes. Wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode. You should also hear a third sound from your computer during this time.

Step 6: Click on your iPhone in iTunes. It should say it's in recovery mode and need to be restored. Step 7: Click OK and restore it.

Now you will need to re-jailbreak it, and restore your backup, and also put your music back in.

Good Luck!
