Try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo, then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.

Hope this helps

How do I unfreeze my iPhone?

Hit the power button and the button on the screen at the same time and hold both down for at least 10 seconds it should reboot. Otherwise you will have to sync with itunes .connect the usb cord to computer first. then press the screen button and connect the phone. Press on the screen button until you connect with iTunes under recovery mode. It will either help you back up or erase everything on your iphone . it would be wise to make a back up on your computer.

My Apple IPhone 3G Screen just went blank. It sync's to my ITunes and I restored it but in never turned back on. Any suggestions?

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
you will have to put the phone in the DFU mode and restore with itunes

To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

Step Three
After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

The iPhone screen will remain black like this:

NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

IPhone Smartphone: i unplugged my iphone from my apple computer than ...

Try this, turn phone on holding power and home at same time. Release power button after 10 seconds and continue holding home for another 30 seconds. The phone should boot into DFU recovery mode, but screen may stay blank. Plug into iTunes it will detect phone as being in recovery mode and it will offer to restore it for you. Once done restore your last back up in iTunes and you are good to go.

Iphone freezes up and will not recognize even when I hit the reset button. This happened while uploading the latest version of itunes. Please help!

Call Apple, it may be a problem with your itunes, and they have all the answers on that. You may have to do a reset which is pushing the power button and the home key until you see the apple show up on the screen.

My Iphone 3GS screen turned blank

First of all hard reset the iPhone (press menu and on/off together for 5sec). If that fails, there is a hardware issue. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and install a new logic board. You can get the part on Ebay or at iPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open an iPhone and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.
