Re: apple icon is all that happens..

Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.
Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.
Alternative Method:

It means that when you turn your phone, the screen is locked from rotating with it. To change this, Press home twice quickly, slide left & then press the icon with the lock in the middle of the circular arrow.

My icons on ma iphone have magnified and i want them to go back to normal size?help pls...everything is soo large and i want it to be the way i baught it....small icons!

Hello Nanagruv,

Just tap 3 fingers at the same time on your iphone's screen. What happened was you unintentionally grabbed the iphone thru your pocket and had placed three fingers at the same time in the screen.

Please let me know if this works. Goodluck!

Iphone home screen zoom in

This happens when you accidentally put the iphone in zoom mode, which is one of the "accessibility" features under the "settings" icon. Most likely the user accidentally "double tapped" the screen with three fingers. This is what launches zoom mode. To change the zoom, double tap the screen with three fingers and drag the three fingers down or up the screen. To avoid this recurring, you can go to Settings>General>Accessibility>Zoom. Then set the Zoom feature to "off".

Not turning on

  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 hank only apple icon comes on screen after press home+on

You may need to restore your iphone. Connect to your pc, then hold the power and home buttons for exactly 10 seconds, then release the power button keeping the home button pressed until iTunes says "iphone in recovery mode detected" then release.
Follow the instructions in itunes to restore your iphone, then re-sync to get your data back

White apple in middle of black screen of iphone3g

Looks like your iPhone won't boot, It happens sometimes if your phone is jailbroken and you have installed another non-standard language interface, i install Hebrew on my phones, If i then erase all settings it will fail to boot, like yours...
I suggest you restore the phone and re-jailbreak
since you have erased all settings i presume you have no personal data on it, if you do have contacts/calendar/SMS items, try to backup via iTunes before you restore, even when only the apple is showing, sometimes you can connect to the phone via iTunes/WinSCP
Good luck!

my advice to all iphone user _ don't ever upgrade or unlock via software if you dont know well the procedure any mistake while downloading the software will mess up your iphone.... upgrading from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 will not help your iphone to be the latest version its just the same and no sense at all
