APPLE UPDATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just read that apple may be releasing a new update for the iPhone.
If you have unblocked yours, then DO NOT update. It may cause your iPhone to brick (or lock up).
Apparantly there will be a fix for this update sometime soon, so wait for it rather than taking a risk and having an expensive and useless phone.
You do not have to update or use any that are sent to you. Apple don't enforce updates.
So again, don't risk it and wait. !!!!!!

The 1.1.1 firmware revision that bricked some unlocked iPhones a couple months ago had to do with buggy unlocking software. Versions of the 'AnySim' package prior to 1.1 corrupted the SecZone which would cause the phone to turn into an expensive iBrick when the 1.1.1 firmware was applied. I don't believe phones that were IPSF or hardware unlocked were affected. Regardless..if you have an unlocked iPhone in the US, definitely wait until the iPhone Dev teams figure it out. If you are like most people and have a locked or 'virgin' iPhone, you shouldn't have any problems with upgrading.

My iPhone 5 was frozen. I forced a shut down and now cannot sign back in. When I touch the numbers, the phone does not read it.

Try to restart the iPhone: Press and hold both power button and home button together until iPhone turns off and starts again (Apple logo appear on white screen). Release both buttons when you see the Apple logo. Let the phone boot up. It should be ok. If not,

You can update/restore your iPhone using iTunes installed on a Mac or Windows computer.

Steps to follow:
1. Please turn off the phone.
2. Press and hold the home button and connect the USB charging cable to your phone and to Mac/PC running iTunes.
3. When iTunes connect logo appear on iPhone screen, release the home button.
4. iTunes will detect your phone and prompt you to update/restore your phone.
5. Click on update.
6. Let iTunes download and install iOS update on your phone. It will prompt you once finished.

If the update is failed, iTunes will prompt you to restore (this process will erase all data from your iPhone), select restore and wait to finish.

After restore process is done, you may restore your iPhone backup (if you have backed up your iPhone before).

IPhone 3g White Apple Logo Screen of Death

Press and hold Sleep/Wake and Home until the iPhone resets.
When the Apple logo appears release Sleep/Wake, but do not release Home until you see the prompt to connect the iPhone to iTunes.

to restore the iPhone’s firmware, all your settings, all your media, and all your Apps.
I don't recommend you to do the offered backup, I've seen a few things more reliable then this backup, to say the least...

To avoid the screen of death, do not update all the features with the "Update All" feature, updates your features one at a time, avoid performing other tasks while updating your iPhone.
