Reset all of the functions

go to settings - general - reset (down the bottom) and go to 'reset all settings'

this will just set all the settings back to how they were in the first place...this won't affect and e-mail accounts but will affect things that you have passwords for e.g facebook and wireless devices - but you just have to put these back in

My G3 phone is flashing the apple symbol while powering up but isn't powering up.

Thank for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

What you can do, in order to resolve this issue, is start by resetting your iPhone 3G.
(Note: this does not remove any settings, data or media you have installed in your device)
• To perform a hard reset, press and hold your Sleep and Home Menu buttons for approximately 10 seconds.
• Once your screen goes black, release both keys. (If you see a white Apple logo before you release the keys you have held the keys to long and will need to start the reset process once again)
• The next screens you should see after the black screen, is the Apple logo screen followed by the main screen.

• This hard reset process should help bring your iPhone 3G back to normal functionality.

It would also be advisable to connect your iPhone 3G via its docking cable and provided wall socket adapter into a working wall socket in order to try and charge it.

If your iPhone 3G still does not charge, try connecting it with the docking cable to your computer or laptop to observe if it will take a charge then.

Should this process also not affect the way the iPhone charges, then you should look into using or purchasing another iPhone docking cable, as the cable itself may not be functional and needs to be replaced.

Docking cables for iPhones are fairly inexpensive (Under $20) and can be found in most electronics/computer stores that carry Apple products and accessories.

Finally, if a replacement docking cable does not help the iPhone 3G charge, this may be a hardware issue and you would be advised to take the iPhone 3G in to your local Apple retail store or Apple Authorized Service Provider in your area.

My iphone 3g only signals connect to itunes and it does not akow any other function

1. Connect your iPhone to iTunes.
2. Hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
3. After exactly 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button for 10 seconds or until iTunes pops up a message saying that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. At this point, click OK, then click "Restore" in iTunes.

Might need an AT&T SIM card to activate

My iphone 3g screen is not responding. i can receive calls. messages. unlock/lock button works fine and also the home button works fine. please help!

This sounds like a problem with possibly 3 things. One you may not have the lcd ribbon cable fully in place. You may have purchase a faulty LCD. The main board in the phone has a short and its not getting the full connection to the screen causing only the backlight to function

IPhone 3g Power & Volume buttons aren't working

This is probably a hardware problem, even though it started happening after a configuration change.
The part that connects the on/off button and the volumes is the same part. This flex cable connects these buttons (and some other parts) to the motherboard. This cable is frequently damaged when the Iphone is wet.
The good part is that it is a cheap part, and relatively easy to install.
You can find a replacement here:
