How to solve if my iphone 3G cannot be on, it stuck at the apple screen?


  • The quickest way to fix your iPhone 3G is to sync it to a different computer. When you do this the computer will recognize it as a new device and install the software on it like it's never been used before, that said everything you have on it is gone. It may take a while so be patient.
  • 2 If step one is successful you can sync it to your computer. It will recognize that it is synced with another computer and ask you if you want to sync it to this one; go ahead and do it. This may take a while too because you will install the applications, songs, data, etc. you had on it before.

    WARNING! DO NOT DISCONNECT YOUR IPHONE 3G WHILE SYNC IS IN PROGRESS OR ELSE YOU WILL BE STUCK IN RESTORE MODE AGAIN!
  • 3 If steps 1 and 2 did not work or you do not have another computer to sync it with the following steps will help.
  • 4 Backup your music, videos, and applications. Typically it would be the iTunes folder in the My Music folder. This is a precautionary step to the following steps to come, your music should be unaffected but stranger things have happened.
  • 5 Uninstall iTunes, Quicktime, and other Apple component software from your computer. Follow the steps listed on the Apple Support page, "Removing iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows XP" the link is available in the resources section. Restart your computer when done.
  • 6 To be sure everything is uninstalled completely run the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. This program removes remnants of uninstalled programs from your registry and deletes files that the uninstall fail to catch. You can download and read more about this program from the Microsoft Help and Support Page, "Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility" the link is available in the resources section. Restart your computer.
  • 7 If you have a registry cleanup utility like Registry Mechanic or CCleaner run the program and restart your computer. It is sad to say but the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility may not catch everything so having a secondary cleaner could be essential.
  • 8 Install the latest version of iTunes. Currently iTunes 8 is the latest, it could change tomorrow so download it from Apple.com. Restart your computer.
  • 9 Open iTunes and connect your iPhone 3G. It may take a while for it to recognize the phone, be patient. Once iTunes recognizes your phone it will prompt you to download the latest iPhone software, the current version is 2.1. Follow the installation instructions in the Apple iPhone - Software Update page, the link is available in the resources section.

    WARNING! DO NOT DISCONNECT YOUR IPHONE 3G WHILE SYNC IS IN PROGRESS OR ELSE YOU WILL BE STUCK IN RESTORE MODE AGAIN!
  • 10 Hopefully these steps helped you recover your iPhone 3G. It is possible that even after a successful recovery your phone may revert back to being stuck. In my experience I was able to save my iPhone 3G from restore mode but when I downloaded the software update it got stuck again, luckily steps 1 and 2 fixed it.

    IPhone 3G Unknown Error Occurred 6 can't resotore to 3.0 help


    turn the iPhone off, connect the cable to the computer, but do not connect to the iphone. Hold the home button and connect the iPhone to the computer. iTunes will recognize it in recovery mode. (You must have ipsw file) Hold shift and click restore. now look for the ipsw file, choose that file, and itunes will do the rest.

    I have a problem. My iphone 3g charges from the wall but won't interact with the computer at all. Have tested the lead and the port and computer with another iphone. Also reinstalled Itunes. Any ideas?


    Try opening itunes before you connect iphone 3g. It should recognize it instantly. Also, notice if the display on the iphone changes. If it does then it means windows does recognize it.
    You should also try using another port (most PCs/Laptops have atleast 2 hi-speed ports). Otherwise i suggest you ask apple support directly via http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1495

    IPhone 3G Error 0xE8000001


    Where did you purchase your phone? however, you first need to update itunes to 8.0.2, that might solve your problem. Unless you have an unlocked phone then restoring your phone is useless because when you restore an iphone with itunes in the US without an att sim card it will actually lock the phone, but I do not think that is your issue. the two things you are seeing the connect to itunes and the emergency call system means that your phone is not properly activated. which is done by connecting it to itunes.
