  • kenlow1 Jun 26, 2008

    I have the same problem faced by vivianng89, whereby my iphone is always showing the apple logo for a long time. No blinking whatsoever. It stays that way until the battery runs very low, then it switches off.



    I tried pressing the on/off button + home button together for 5 seconds as suggested (more than 30 tries i think by now) but it wont budge.



    FYI, my iphone is still using version 1.1.1.



    Any ways to "un-hang" my iphone?

Also some coments.....
if phone hanged, and restarting is not helping, you have to restore it...(push off and tap butons together, keep for long, while Itunes logo will apear), then restore it via Itunes.
then download program Zip iphone, and it will brakejail it. everything will be working superb, only you will loose all your info, such as calendar, adress book, and so on.
if you want to back up all this stuff, just use iphone brooser, there you can copy/add any file from/to Iphone. Also via iphone brooser you can add any ringtone you want to your phone.
intrested how? too lazy to explain, it can be other topic..:)

Hang iphone..


Plug it into your computer and open iTunes, select your iPod in the list to the left, under the big picture of your iPhone there's a button that says "Restore," this will do a restoration of the software on your iPhone. You might lose some saved text messages and such but it will fix your iPhone.
Hope this helps!

I CAN'T CALL OR HANG UP FROM MY IPHONE BUT OTHER KEY PAD WORKS.WHAT DO I DO?


am assuming you JB your phone recently?

If yes, then the dialer freezing issue is caused by few apps from Installer. I faced the same issue and I ended up restoring and re-JB without selecting Installer. If you would like to keep Installer, the Apps that you need to remove are:

- Kate
- Mobile Enhancer
- RIP DEV Preferences

Just go to Installer and remove those and restart your iPhone, the freezing and crashing should stop.

As of upgrading to 2.2.1 for JB purposes, it's 100% jailbreak-able and it works well. But I am not 100% sure regarding yell0wsnow. (I don't unlock, I only JB - sorry)

Hope this was helpful smile.gif

My apple iphone has a hang up problem..


just press the on/off button as well as the home button simultaneously for about 10 secs.
