Iphone reset instructions don't work

Hello bought this iphone for my daughter xmas eve day at AT&T store. Phone has not been dropped and has not got wet. My daughter usually puts her iphone in her ihome and night and today she put her iphone in her cousins ihome and the screen went blank. Nothing. I've looked in the headphone jack for "the dot"; I must be blind but i don't see anything. Held down the buttons separately, together, charged for at least 10 minutes (the phone was fully charged when this happened), and plugged into USB and went to ITunes...don't know what else to try. ??? Only 2-1/2 months old? Is this typical?

    hello you can ask her to long press the home button and the power button for more than 8 seconds and once you see the apple icon let it go. it should do the trick. hope this works. cheers.

How to Hard Reset an iPhone

<p>Owners and users of the Apple iPhone generally report loving the phone, but they also report frequent lock-ups where the screen suddenly freezes or goes black altogether. Some report success solving the problem with a soft reset or the holding down of the sleep/wake and home buttons for the 10 second reset requirement. If this does not work, a hard reset is required to bring the iPhone back to life.<br /> <br /> <span>Instructions</span> <ol> <li> Update iTunes to version 7.4 or higher from the Apple website if you haven't already. <li> Connect the iPhone to your PC. You are automatically taken to the sync management page, and iTunes automatically begins syncing, or copying/backing-up the calendars, <a href="">Internet</a> bookmarks, contacts and e-mail accounts stored on the iPhone. Sync everything on the phone or pick and choose from the menu you're given. Sync everything on the iPhone you don't want to lose, because a hard reset restores the iPhone to its original state and all data added since it was first taken out of the box is lost. <li> Go to the "Summary" tab at the top of the screen and select "Restore" from the drop-down menu. <li> Wait as the iPhone hard resets. The iPhone comes back up in it's original factory state and a prompt appears asking if you want to restore data settings. <li> Select "Yes" to restore the synced data to the iPhone.</li></ol> <br /> <br /> <br />

I forgot my password to my iphone and it has no service how do i reset

Plug it into a computer with iTunes. After a few minutes, it should bring up an option to "restore" the iPhone. This will reset it so you can start using it again.

hello,ensure you are not clicking on the key wrongly,i would advice you put the phone off and on back to see if the problem stops.if it doesn't i would also advice you ensure you close any application you are not making use could also be as a result of accumulated opening of applications. if that does not stop the problem,i would suggest you get the phone flashed by a mobile phone authorized repair engineer around you.
wish you good luck,
take care.

My daughter set a password for son's iphone 3G and she cannot remember the password, can someone advice me how to unlock the phone

Plug it into iTunes with it at the unlock screen. Somewhere it should say "Unlock your iPhone" or something like that in iTunes. Click it. Otherwise do a restore by going to the screen where it shows how much memory you have used up in iTunes and click restore.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe
