You have to activate the phone. Please put your SIM card in the phone and connect your phone to iTunes.

Hi when i reset my i phone 3 5 it only shows apple sign and when connected to comp it doesnot show i tunes

You will probably need to reboot into recovery mode and restore your phone. To get into recovery mode, make sure your phone is connected to you computer via usb cable, then you need to hold down the sleep button and the home button down at the same time for 10 seconds then release the sleep button. Continue holding the home button down until iTunes detects a phone in recovery mode, once it's in recovery mode you can press the restore from within iTunes.

It won't start it just has apple on screen


try to reset your phone

To reset i Phone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

If i Phone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn i Phone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of i Phone for a 10 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 i Phone. 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

More resets:

Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.

Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the i Phone 3G.
2.) Start up i Tunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the i Phone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

Iphoned does not work

Have you tried holding the power button and the home key together. Hold until unit reboots and once apple logo appears, release both buttons. If this doesnt work try this below.

Try launching I Tunes on PC without I phone connected. Then make sure I Phone is switched off. Now hold down the home key (square at bottom of screen) Whilst still holding home key plug in your I Phone usb lead. I Tunes should identify you I Phone after few seconds and prompt " detected I Phone in recovery mode" (or similar) it should then prompt 'yes' or 'no' to do recovery. Select yes and let it start. This should resolve this issue as it did on my 3G version.
If still no luck search FAQ's section on
Hope that works/helps?

Trouble connecting 3G Mobile Broadband with Elonex

1. Modem may need more power. Get an adapter (might have come with your modem) that combinds power from two USB ports.

2. add an extention USB cable to get it futher away from laptop and possible interference.

I phone wont turn on linked to i tunes?

You have to leave it on itunes for about 15 mins, let the iphone download the software itself, once the software update is done, the usb and itunes logos will come again you have to leave the phone in the usb for a while and then it will work.

On my iphone it shows the picture of itunes then the usb going to connect, there is no service it shown,and cannot make any phone call.. it's only emergency call..

Has it ever worked, as it sounds like it needs to be docked on I Tunes to 'unbrick it?'
If it is black background and white cable coming from bottom of screen then it needs to unlocked on I Tunes.
Download latest version of I Tunes from
Once I tunes is set up link I Phone to your computer (with I Tunes running) via the usb cable that came with your I Phone.
Follow prompts within I Tunes and this should get everything going.

Apple iphone 3g

I had this happen to me recently - it happened when I used my old ipod USB lead rather than the USB lead that came with the iphone. I tried a lot of things to resolve it, but the only thing that fixed it was using the USB lead that came with the iphone(it should NOT have the squeeze clips on the sides of the phone plug) to plug it into my PC and let itunes perform its sync.

Good luck!
