It's not broken. You need to do as I tell. Make sure to count every second.
First, hold the power button (the only button on the top-right corner of your iPhone.
Then, after just a second (literally, 1 second), press and hold the Home button (the only button on the face of your iPhone) at the same time for about 10 seconds. Just to clarify, you must be holding both the power and the Home button during this 10 seconds.
After that, release ONLY the power button and keep holding the Home button for about 10 to 30 seconds longer, until you see this image:

This means your iPhone is already in DFU mode and iTunes from your computer can recognize it already. This also means that you can restore your iPhone and make it operational again.
Now, when you restore, I suggest that you restore to 3.1.2 and not to the latest 3.1.3 software version, so it can be possible for you to jailbreak your iPhone.
And to restore to 3.1.2, here's what you gotta do:
Click here where you will see 2 selections: (1) iPod; and (2) iPhone / iPod touch.
Focus on iPhone / iPod touch and select iPhone 3G (3.1.2/7D11) or iPhone 3G S (3.1.2/7D11) - depending on whether your device is a 3G or a 3G S - and then click download. Tip: it's better if you save it on your desktop.
After the download is finished, open iTunes from your computer, and select your device. You should see the restore button there but before you click it, you must first, hold Alt (or Option) if your using a Mac, or CTRL if your using Windows. This will let you choose what software version you want to restore your iPhone with. So, you must select the one that you just downloaded and click restore.
That should do the trick.

Iphone shuts off and won't turn back on what do i do?


You might try holding down the power and home buttons at the same time. Wait until you see the silver apple. Thats what I did when mine wouldn't turn back on.there is an easier way instead of just guessing....
when you plug it into any form of charging source...just completely shut down your iphone...and leave it there for how ever long it takes to charge...(to be able to use it again is about 30 minutes)depends on your energy sourceFirst open iTunes and Conect your iPhone cord to your computer, but do not plug it into your iPhone. Then press and hold the home button on your phone while conecting the iPhone cord into your iPhone continue to hold down the home button. Then click restore in iTunes

My iphone turned off and wont turn back on. i've tried holding the home button and the button at the top but nothing will work. when i plug it into the charger on the wall the apple symbol appears. then...


1. Connect your iPhone to iTunes.
2. Hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time for 10 seconds.
3. After exactly 10 seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Home button for 10 seconds or until iTunes pops up a message saying that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. At this point, click OK, then click "Restore" in iTunes.

My apple iphone was working fine but when i have erased all its setting and content its on a hang up mode and is still on process just showing the apple logo and cannot be switched on or off plz help....


By Holding the top button and the home button, you can force your iphone to reset.
Try this: -Hold the top button and the home button on the iphone until you see silver apple logo -When you see the silver apple logo, let go of the top button and keep holding down on the home button until you see a picture of a usb to plug into itunes. -plug into itunes and restore
-if an unknown restore error occurs, usually you may have to turn off firewall, check usb cables, try different computer
I hope this helps!

Tried downloading mms app from cydia and phone is frozen


Apps from non-Apple places typically don't go over well. You'll need to do a back up and restore (as new) with iTunes. AT&T has released official MMS as of 09/25, please use it and be sure you have the latest 3.1 software (it will download automatically in back up and restore). Always be cautious with 3rd party app stores, half my calls every day are about sites that crashed people's iPhones.

Iphone 3g is frozen and touch screen wont work


If this unit is jailbroken you may want to do a full restore of the device, you will need to get the Iphone turned on and connect it to itunes, when you get into I tune and you phone is seen, right click on the device in itunes and tell it to restore.
This will reset the phone back to defaults, you will loose most of your data if not all.
If you can't get it to stay on or come on in Itunes then you may need to try this.

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:

Step 1. Connect iphone to USB then listen to the sound when it connect and disconnect.
Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.

My iphone wont turn on past the silver apple logo.


Open up iTunes, connect the iPhone. Hold down the power button for 3 seconds, hold both power button and home button for 10 seconds, release power button while still holding down the home button. This puts your iDevice into DFU mode, so it can be restored using iTunes.
