Re: dead iphone

I had a similar problem a couple of weeks ago! i had my iphone in my jacket, i think it must've caught a cold or something...anyway i read somewhere to hold the power and the home button until the apple icon shows up and it worked for me! try that.

Re: dead iphone

If you have tried to reset your iphone and it does not work (by holding the power button and the home button down for 10 seconds) then dont panic :) -

this will tell you an easy step by sep way to recover your iphone. however everything will be wiped off your iphone apart from your contacts and your texts that were sent when you last synced your ipone but your songs and apps will automaticaly be restored by itunes.

hope this helps!! :) x

Re: dead iphone

Usually if it doesn't respond after you tried the hard reset, it's a defective logic board which then would need to be replaced. if it dropped into water you may be able to clean off the waterdamage by opening it up. there is an iphone repair manual that will guide you through the steps the part is readily available on ebay.

I want to sync my I Phone 4 to a established file on my computer?

before you can sync your iPhone with anything, you need to setup iTunes on your computer and set it up for syncing. putting a file from your computer on an iPone from the computer, is not syncing, buy copying. For that you need a different tactic. Depends even on what it is you want to put on the phone.
When you have an old backup from any phone, or even from the iPhone 4 you now have, you can't add that to the existing files on the phone.

My i phone is locked in a super large view of everything and it wont let me scroll to turn it on or do anything. Help please dont want to do a hard reset.

Note: Resetting will only give a reset to all the existing settings on your iPhone; it does not delete any media or data.

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for 10 seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Non responsive touch screen on iphone

If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken digitizer of your iPhone screen assembly. There is an iphone repair guide website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
