Ive had my iphone for almost 2 years and my friends played a trick o me and locked my phone up to where i have no access and it tells me to hook up to itunes but it dont work.


      Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. You may have to hold the buttons down for up to 20 seconds before anything happens. Afterwards, your device should restart and return you to the Home screen.Nov 30, 2013

    How to Fix an Apple iPhone That Is Locked Up - Everyday Life

The screen has frozen up and has went black


Usually, the best way to remedy this is to do a hard reset on your device. To do that, follow the steps below:
  1. Hold your iPod like how you would hold an iPhone. Notice the lock button at the top edge of the device and the home button located on the front face of the device.
  2. Hold down BOTH the home and lock buttons until the screen turns itself off or, until you see a slider come down giving you the option to slide to turn off.
  3. Give a few moments for your device to turn off completely.
  4. Hold the lock button again for a few moments and your device will turn on with the apple logo on display. After a minute or two, you should see your lock screen. You can now use your iPod normally.

My iphone version of the Sims 3 has frozen in one place. I've waited for over an hour and it still hasn't moved. This is the very first time I've played it.


this is a common problem with some iphone apps, is your iphone installed with the latest software? if it is frozen on your screen and the home button wont work hold down the lock button and the round home button together for about 10 seconds and that will do a little reset on the phone. Also it would be handy to report it in the app store so they can work on fixing that bug.

Screen frozen


Try a hard reset first. (menu and on/off button together for 5sec) if it boots again, but then doesn't repspond touch sensor screen needs replacement. Take it to the apple store and see if they'll give you a replacement. If they don't there are third party iPhone Repair Services that can fix it for you. There are also free iPhone Repair guide that show you how to fix it yourself.

Iphone has frozen. Won't take calls, won't turn


hold on the power and home buttons until the screen goes black, once black keep holding the buttons until you see an apple logo then release, this is a soft reset. if this doesnt work plug into itunes and when the computer recoginizes it click restore. this will delete everything on your phone and take it back to the way it was when you bought it.

My iphone won't turn on it's just a plane black screen, it doesn't do anything and it won't charge either. please help me.


Reset the iPhone by holding the sleep/wake button at the top right of the device and thehome button at the bottom center of the face at the same time. Hold them both until you see the screen go black and the white Apple logo appear. When this happens, you can let go - the iPhone is rebooting.
Resetting the iPhone should not remove or delete any data or settings.

My iPhone 3GS battery died and now I get only a white screen...


Try hard reset
  1. Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
  2. Hold both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, Ignore the "Slide to power off" and keep holding
  3. The iPhone should now shutdown automatically - (fade to black)
  4. Turn the iPhone back on by hitting the sleep/wake button.
  5. You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.
  6. You have completed a hard reset successfully

iPhone Troubleshooting: How to Restart, quit frozen apps and Reset iPhoneby David Chartier on Jul 18th 2007 at 9:00AM
iphone_225.jpgI'm starting to think there is some sort of bad luck attached to my iTunes Store account, as tonight I experienced the third iTunes Store song that completely locked up an iPod - only this time it was my iPhone. While listening to 'Again with the Subtleties' from the Yppah album You Are Beautiful At All Times (US iTunes link) in my iPhone's iPod app, the phone completely locked up at the end of the track with an almost-faded out display. What was worse, the iPhone became completely unresponsive - the display wouldn't accept any of my taps, and even the external buttons were ignored. Momentarily wishing I could simply yank the battery to cut the power and reset the phone, I realized Apple must have some sort of a contingency in place for lock-ups like these.

Fortunately, I was right: The iPhone troubleshooting section of Apple's main iPhone support site contains a walkthrough for situations like this, complete with instructions on how to restart the phone, force quit a frozen app or reset the phone in cases like mine where it has completely locked up. Here are these steps in a nutshell:
  • Restart your iPhone: Most people probably already know how to do this, but just in case, you can simply hold the sleep/wake button on the top for a few seconds to bring up a red slider at the top of the display which allows you to power off the phone.
  • Quit a frozen iPhone app: I know it's a crazy thought, but it is entirely possible that Apple's wondrous iPhone apps can lock up from time to time. In this case, simply hold the Home button when in the app for about 6 seconds to kill the app. You should be able to jump back into the app without restarting the phone itself.
  • Reset your iPhone: Note that this is not Restoring your iPhone; that's the button in iTunes that wipes the iPhone and all your information on it. Resetting an iPhone is nothing more than a hard reset or a forced reboot - you're simply cutting the power and making it reboot. To do this, hold the sleep/wake button and Home buttons simultaneously for a few seconds; the display will quickly wipe itself and you should see the black background and white Apple logo, signifying a reset well done.
Fortunately, that reset fixed my problem and I'm jamming again with my iPhone as I write this. Still, you can be sure that I'll ping iTunes support to find out what's going on with these files, as this is the third one I've downloaded from the iTS that's caused an iPod to stop dead in its tracks. Anyone else experience something like this? You know where to sound off.
