Have you tried a hard reset? If this doesn't work, have you tried plugging the phone into iTunes to see if you can do a full restore?

Hard reset:

  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.

Hi my Iphone 3gs won't slide to open and can't slide it to shut it off either..I can still see i'm getting twitter texts but can't slide to open and do anything with phone since last night..can you help?

Press and hold Power and home button for few seconds, it will turn off the device, keep the device off for few minutes then press the power button only to make the phone on again, and it should work again properly, This may happens when you try to install apps specially themes which hangs the springboard

IPhone wont turn off

Unlock the screen.
Press the button on the top of the phone and hold it down.
In approximately 5 seconds a "slide to power off" message should appear.
Slide the slider and power off the phone.

If this does not work take it to an Apple or AT&T store.

Error while syncing my iPhone to itunes-phone won't turn on now

in order to fix your phone, you`ll have to force it to DFU mode and then iTunes should be able to detect it. Once detected, it would ask you to update it to latest firmware. Afta the update your phone would work just fine.

To get it to DFU, follow these steps.

1.Connect your phone to PC.
2. Turn it off completely. To turn it off, press and hold the power button untill you get the the option, slide to turn off.
3. Then, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds.
4. Without leaving the power button, now press and hold the HOME button, for 10seconds.
5. Now leave the power button, but keep holding the home button for next 20 seconds.

The phone should be detected by the PC to be in recovery mode. Now, iTunes will help you update and/or restore your phone.

I have an iphone 3G 8GB and it is only a month 1/2 old, ever since i got it it has been freezing, when i get calls it will freeze and go black so i cant hang up, then goes away a short time after pressing...

The Apple store should replace it because it is under warranty, dont worry about that. But try syncing with iTunes to backup your essential data, then check for any software upadates, and update. If this doesnt fix it, try a restore.

If none of the above sorts the problem Apple will almost certainly replace the phone as it is not fit for the purpose for which it was sold. Statutory rights also apply to mobile phones.

Hope this helps
