Hold the home key and power key ..... it should do a soft reset. now if still it doesnt work then try to check if the screen has the touch sense..... because if the screen sense is still there then it would have loosed its calibration . which will be ok if you do a restore from your itunes.

Slide finger across wont open


Hi Anonymous,

if sliding your finger across the "slide to unlock" bar won't unlock your iPhone it's possible that your touch screen is (partially) broken.
Try a reboot first: Hold the Power-Button until the "Power off" slider appears. Hopefully you can slide that. If not hold Power and Home-Button for approx. 10 seconds until the phone is off.

If after starting your phone again you can't "slide to unlock" you should see to get a screen replacement.

Iphone 3gs 16gb. slider will not work when trying to unlock screen to use phone. it senses your finger touch but after a couple of centimetres of sliding across it goes back to its starting position.


Try restarting the phone by holding the Home and Sleep/Wake button for about 20 seconds. After iOS is done rebooting, you should be able to unlock the phone. If not, the digitizer on the screen may be damaged, and you would have to take it into Apple to have it replaced for a fee.

My iphone 3gs shut off and won't turn on... tried rebooting it but saw nothing. How long should I hold the "Home" button and the "Power" button?? If this doesn't work, what should I do??Please help...


If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting
iPhone will likely solve the problem.
Restart iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone back on, press and
hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can't turn off iPhone or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A reset
should be done only if turning iPhone off and on doesn't resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone
for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button
until the application quits.
Reset iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

Iphone 3gs wont work. white flashlight screen?? please help


If iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or you can't sync iPhone
  1. The iPhone battery might need to be recharged. For information about charging iPhone, see "Charging the Battery" in the iPhone User's Guide.
  2. If that doesn't work, disconnect other USB devices from your computer and connect iPhone to a different USB 2.0 port on your computer (not on your keyboard).
  3. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  4. If that doesn't work, restart your computer and reconnect iPhone to your computer.
  5. If that doesn't work, download and install (or reinstall) the latest version of iTunes.
If you can't make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web
  1. Check the cell signal indicator in the status bar at the top of the screen. If there are no bars, or if it says "No service," try moving to a different location. If you're indoors, try going outdoors or moving closer to a window.
  2. Check to make sure you’re in an area with network coverage. Go to your carrier's website to see network coverage areas.
  3. Make sure airplane mode isn't on. From the Home screen choose Settings, then turn Airplane Mode off.
  4. If that doesn't work, turn airplane mode on, wait 15 seconds, then turn airplane mode off again.
  5. Make sure to include an area code for every phone number in your contacts list that you use to send or receive text messages.
  6. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  7. If that doesn't work, there may be an issue with your wireless service. Call your carrier or go to your carrier's website.
  8. If that doesn't work, restore the iPhone software. See Backing up, updating, and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software or see "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software" in the iPhone User's Guide.
MMS: Original iPhone does not support MMS. MMS is available on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS if it is supported by the wireless carrier. For more information, please see iPhone: System requirements for MMS.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond See iPhone and iPod touch: Frozen and unresponsive for information on addressing these symptoms.
  1. iPhone OS 2.x and earlier: Press and hold the Home button until the application quits.
    iPhone OS 3.x and later: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears, then press and hold the Home button until the application quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPhone continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  1. Reset iPhone settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but no data or media is deleted.
  2. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears restore the iPhone software. See Backing up, updating and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software.

I dropped my iphone and now the unlock slide doesnt work


It looks like you need a new LCD/digitizer which you canreplace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.
