I've recently purchased a iPhone 3GS, everything is ok apart from the home button, when switching from app or unlocking mode I have to press really hard to get it to respond, I know this is not normal as...


That's common. iPhone 4's and the 3GS are made differently. The button in a 3GS is actually part of the screen as in a 4 it's separate from the screen making it easier to be pushed down and not get as dirty. It needs taking apart and cleaned.

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

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 touchpad not working


Hi devanshu-

I have a smiliar problem but only because I was a bit of a twit and dropped my iPhone on the cement and thus, breaking the screen. So now part of my screen wont accept the touch.

If you did not drop your iphone, there are some other possible reasons:
  1. If you have more than one finger touching at one time (unless doing that cool little double finger zoom in), the touchpad will not respond. I have caught myself doing this on accident if I am holding it so my thumb is touching part of the screen as I am trying to make a call or write a text.
  2. The touch sensor is malfunctioning. Sure, this could be a software problem (which is why I am including the directions for the dreaded restore below), but the iPhones touch sensor seems to be a bit sketchy in both the 2gs and 3gs. Since you just bought it, it should be under manufacturer warranty for a year. Go to cingular's website (used to work for cingular/at&t and know that if you go to the store, the procedure is to you to call the 888 number with a smile and do nothing else), get the warranty/customer service number and get them to replace it.
The only bad side to either resetting or replacing your phone is that you will lose your contacts. But, if you choose to try this route (which, in the worst case scenerio, will put you in no worse of a position than you already are with a phone you cant use), I will provide some instructions:

  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!!
TJ
