My iPhone screen won't turn off when the iPhone

My iPhone2G's screen doesn't turn off when the iPhone sits on the home screen or some non-game app. It however turns off when the iPhone is on the Lock screen. This problem started when I was upgrading and downgrading between firmwares. Now at 3.1.2. Appears to be some software problem.

Iphone can unlock but the App screen is frozen

You may want to try resetting the phone by holding the home and power button simultaneously until the phone shuts down and the apple logo appears.
If that doesn't help, connect it to your computer and do a restore using iTunes.

Here is my problem i put my iphone down on the couch and went to change clothes i come back my phone is turned of and won't come back on. help me!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Hi shelbyraeble I would suggest you hold the power button on top as well as the home screen button on the phone for 15 seconds you should see an apple come up on it. Now hit the home screen button twice you may have too many apps running on the phone background. Once you close those apps you should be go to go on your phone. Hope this helps. IF you need more help I would call your local apple store and make an appointment. Just have them look at your phone.

When i go back to the main page (home screen) all Facebook, YM!, Skype, Whats Up become disconnected. notification also only can be received when i open the selected application page.

The iPhone 3G cannot multi task with the standard non-jailbroken OS.
They app will always disconnect from the internet because whenever you press the home button on your phone, it simply quits the app that was running.
Notification settings can be changed in the Setting app.
Once you are in Settings, tap Notifications and alter the settings for each application in the way that you want to receive notifications from them.

A lot of my friends are saying my games don't show up, I will have to start a new game with them and the others then come back. What canI do to fix this?

Before writing to the developer, do the following if you haven't already:

Double click the home button (not while in the app), tap and hold the Words app and then delete it from there. This doesn't delete the app from your device, it just deletes it from the temporary memory. Tell your friends to do this too. If this doesn't solve your problem, restart all devices. Do this with holding down both the sleep and the home button until the apple icon appears with black background.

If nothing helps it's very likely to be bug which only the developer of the app can fix. Write a review or an email to him.

I really hope this helped, good luck!

Why can't I open my smurf village app?? It freezes at te Calvin screen and then goes blac and goes to my hone screen. Help??please??

i would suggest a hard reset. this will turn your iphone or ipod off and back on. to do this hold the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time for about 10 seconds. once it turns back on, try the app again. if this does not work, i would try deleting and then re-downloading the app form the app store.

if it is locked with a password the only way to bypass it is to restore the phone to factory settings.

Step 1. Turn off iPhone and connect it to your computer

Step 2. Hold down the power and home button simultaneously

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 it’s in restore mode.

P.S. if you want to unlock it and jailbreak it message me.
