Hi there,

Well  there is a software problem and you will need to restore your iPhone. This is a known problem since firmware version 2.0 (maybe 2.0.2 that was released today will fix it).

Please follow the below steps to resolve the problem -

Put your iPhone into recovery mode.

To put your iPhone in recovery mode:
Step 1: Plug in your iPhone to your computer, make sure your sound is turned on and not muted.

Step 2: Hold the top corner button for two seconds. You should hear a sound.

Step 3: Now, still holding the top power button, immediately press the home button and hold both buttons for 10 seconds. You should hear another sound from your computer.

Step 4: Release the power button but *continue holding the home button*, for another 30 seconds.

Step 5: Meanwhile, continue holding the Home button and open iTunes. Wait for it to tell you that it’s in restore mode. You should also hear a third sound from your computer during this time.

Step 6: Click on your iPhone in iTunes. It should say it's in recovery mode and need to be restored.

Step 7: Click OK and restore it.

Please post comment if further you have the same problem.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My iPhone 5 was frozen. I forced a shut down and now cannot sign back in. When I touch the numbers, the phone does not read it.


Hello,
Try to restart the iPhone: Press and hold both power button and home button together until iPhone turns off and starts again (Apple logo appear on white screen). Release both buttons when you see the Apple logo. Let the phone boot up. It should be ok. If not,

You can update/restore your iPhone using iTunes installed on a Mac or Windows computer.

Steps to follow:
1. Please turn off the phone.
2. Press and hold the home button and connect the USB charging cable to your phone and to Mac/PC running iTunes.
3. When iTunes connect logo appear on iPhone screen, release the home button.
4. iTunes will detect your phone and prompt you to update/restore your phone.
5. Click on update.
6. Let iTunes download and install iOS update on your phone. It will prompt you once finished.

If the update is failed, iTunes will prompt you to restore (this process will erase all data from your iPhone), select restore and wait to finish.

After restore process is done, you may restore your iPhone backup (if you have backed up your iPhone before).

I need to reset my phone amd i forgot my passcode


Hello Karabo, what kind of phone do you have?

If you're an iPhone user and forget your passcode, you will have to factory reset it without Apple ID. To do this you need first put the phone into DFU mode and connect it to iTunes. Your iTunes will help you to reset your iPhone without entering Apple ID easily. Restoring iPhone to factory settings with this method will result in wiping all the data. The following steps will show you how to do that.

1. Open iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone to the computer with a USB cable.

2. After that, turn off you device. Press and hold the Home button for 3 seconds.

3. Put your iPhone into DFU mode: Press and hold the Power and Home button for 10 seconds. Then release the power button and keep holding the home button. When you see the Apple logo disappears, you have successfully put your iPhone into DFU mode.

4. When iTunes detects that your iPhone is in recovery mode, you can restore it now.

5. Click on Restore iPhone. Then you will be notified after the reset and your iPhone will take a restart.

After factory resetting iPhone, you will get all the data swept from iPhone 6 Plus, and you can restore the files from your iPhone, iTunes backup or iCloud backup.

Iphone wont turn on after master reset


Sometimes the iPhone can lockup and stop working or just show the Apple symbol and not do anything else. But panic not, normally an app has caused the phone to crash and it needs to be restarted.
Here’s how you do it:

Sometimes just pressing and holding the home button for about 5 seconds, can help. But if not try this:
Press and hold the iPhone’s Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for several seconds, or until you see the apple logo on the screen.
