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.

My iPhone 3GS won't boot (Endless Reboot). Can't enter into DFU to restore.


You almost had it. First have it pluged in like u did. Then while its trying to start hold the home and power button untill it turns off like u did at the end. Last release the power button but hold the home button down. Do not let go of the home button untill it works. If it wont it will reboot like it had but it will work.

MY iphone is not turning on


If the iPhone is fully charged and still not turning on, try a hard reboot. Press the "Home" and "Power" buttons simultaneously and hold. The reboot process should start. You can tell the process has started when the Apple symbol appears on the screen.
  • If the iPhone still does not power on, try connecting the iPhone to the computer using the iPhone USB cable. ITunes should recognize the iPhone and power it on.
  • Contact Apple.com/support/iphone. Enter in the serial number of your phone and a description of the problem. Apple support will then give you a number to contact if the problem is still not resolved online.

    IPhone 3Gs shut off and will not turn back on.


    I just had the same problem but while filming a video and then pressing stop. You need to "cold boot" (hard reboot) by pressing the home button (center round one) and the start button (top right button) at the same time. Hold both buttons down until you see the apple logo on the screen. Your data should be there. Always go to an Apple Store if you have problems in the future.
