Press and hold the power and menu button simultaneously at least for 20 secs,then release when the phone turns off and restarts automatically. You can also remove the battery from the phone while the phone is on, and put back the battery after a while, it will put back the phone to its normal working status.

    Check round the iphone, you will see a clip clip you can press to open the back cover to access the battery. If you have tried the first solution three times and yet no result, it seems the screen of your iphone is damagedd nd will need to be replaced. You will need to take the iphone to a local phone repsirer to help replace the screen on your iphone. Doing this, will bring back the normal screen.

My iphone suddenly changed colors. The pictures all look like b/w negatives. The icons are really weird colors. Help. Thank you.

Hello Michel,
In the iphone 3GS there is hidden feature called the "White on Black". It completely inverts the color scheme of your iPhone. The background on the home screen will be white, and the text will be black.All of your native apps will have an inverted color scheme. to disable this feature, Go to Settings then General then Accessibility then Turn of White on Black.wirelessage.jpg

My iphone has a white screen, no matter what i tried

This is a condition that Apple is very aware of and if you take your iPhone to an Apple store they will replace it.
Make sure you take your receipt with you.
Other than that, I have not heard exactly what causes it, but i presume it to be a bad batch of LCDs or another critical part causing it.

Which IPhone 3G Case do you like better?

Based on trying a few iPhone cases, I would look for an iPhone case that:   -  doesn't have a cover flap.  Lifting the flap every time you use the phone gets annoying -  prevents skidding.  The iPhone can easily skid off a table; you can lose it or, worse, break it.   -  has a screen cover that doesn't reflect or refract light in awkward ways -  has a screen cover that doesn't get dirty easily.  
Many covers may have these qualities.  One combination I have tried and liked is:   -  the "white gel case" at the AT&T store (about $20) -  the "screen protector tri-pack" also at the AT&T store (about $10)
