Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

2 Answers

My iphone works fine until I go to "phone" and the only think i can hit is clear all recents and cancel. Also, when people try to call me it's stuck on this screen too and says call failed. It's not my service bc I've paid and everything else works fine such as text messages and the 3g network.

How do I unfreeze my iPhone?

Hit the power button and the button on the screen at the same time and hold both down for at least 10 seconds it should reboot. Otherwise you will have to sync with itunes .connect the usb cord to computer first. then press the screen button and connect the phone. Press on the screen button until you connect with iTunes under recovery mode. It will either help you back up or erase everything on your iphone . it would be wise to make a back up on your computer.

My phone is stuck on the slide to power off and cancel at bottom i cant slide or hit the cancel key. do you know what i can do to resolve this problem

Try a reset.

Hold down the home button (bottom middle)
and hold down the Sleep/lock button (top right)

Hold them down until the screen goes black, then once the Apple logo appears. Let go and let the phone restart it's self. That's a "reset" on an Apple device.

Hi, touch pad is dead and will need to be replaced.
If you downloaded or visited the web on your phone , that might attract VIRUS on the phone and it will make the phone to malfunction.

Need to flash your iphoneto restore back the phone to the normal state.

Formatting a phone is the same as flashing a phone to remove VIRUS infections on phones.

You can use this link to flash the phone and remove any VIRUS infection on the phone.
Read and learn more about flashing and how to flash a phone on this link.,

Take care.

Found this on macfixit website, might be helpful:-

If the iPhone is inoperable, try clearing freezes by pressing the "home" button for about 10 seconds. If this doesnt work, try turning it off and back on by pressing and holding the sleep/wake button until the red slider appears. To fully reset the device, press both of these buttons together for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

Lastly, try restoring the iphone which will remove all personal data and clear any settings you may have applied which might be conflicting with the new software update. To do this, connect it to your computer and launch iTunes. Then select the phone and in the "Summary" tab select the "Restore" option. If you have not backed up your phone, be sure to select the option to do that, otherwise this option is not needed. After the restore has completed, you will need to activate the phone with iTunes (the phone should instruct you to do this), and then restore the phone's data and settings from your most recent backup.
