Can't get any other headphone or any thing to work in my iPhone 3gs


Do a hard reboot on your iPhone...

- Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.

- Continue holding both buttons until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart. This will take anywhere from 15-60 seconds.

- You may let go when you see the silver Apple logo. You have now completed the hard reset successfully.

- Don't be alarmed that it takes quite a while to load from the Apple logo to the main screen. This is normal.

How do i change my iphone from chinese settings?


Hey there,

You can reset your iphone back to default english by doing a "hard reset".

Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.

Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart.

You may let go when you see the silver Apple logo.

You have completed a hard reset successfully.

Don't be alarmed that it takes quite a while to load from the Apple logo to the main screen. This is normal.
