You could try putting the phone into recovery mode, then resetting the firmware through iTunes. To enter recovery mode you must: 1) Open iTunes and connect your iPhone 2) Press and hold the home button and the sleep button at the same time. 3) After 10 seconds, release the sleep button but continue holding the home button After following these steps, your iPhone should now be in recovery mode and ready to be restored using iTunes. Good luck!

I am unable to log on Facebook with my phone. I get a message that my password is inactive


using Safari on the iphone, go to www.facebook.com and see if you can get access that way. Also, try deleting and resinstalling the Facebook app - but it might be that it's no longer supported on the iPhone 3 / 3s (There is no iPhone 3g. 3g means that you're using the 3g mobile data network from your mobile company rather than, for example, wifi).

My phone is freezing offend. Some of my apps won't open even when I take them off and put them back in my phone. Also my new apps are downloading really slowly. I have a 3gs by the way


I used to have an iPhone and my phone froze once before and i couldn't turn it off at all, so my friend showed me a little trick.

If your phone freezes again and cannot turn it off by just the power button, then click the power and home button at the same time.

Then, once you turn it back on, it should be back to normal.

With the apps, if you don't already do this, you need to update them regularly. You can find it in the appstore and it automatically update your apps. It also depends on how big the actual app is. Ex: If you have a 15.3 or 16.3 MB app, then it will be slow 'cause it's bigger than let's say a 5.7 KB app.

If all of your apps are in KB, then it should be working fine.

When i go back to the main page (home screen) all Facebook, YM!, Skype, Whats Up become disconnected. notification also only can be received when i open the selected application page.


The iPhone 3G cannot multi task with the standard non-jailbroken OS.
They app will always disconnect from the internet because whenever you press the home button on your phone, it simply quits the app that was running.
Notification settings can be changed in the Setting app.
Once you are in Settings, tap Notifications and alter the settings for each application in the way that you want to receive notifications from them.

i would suggest a hard reset. this will turn your iphone or ipod off and back on. to do this hold the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time for about 10 seconds. once it turns back on, try the app again. if this does not work, i would try deleting and then re-downloading the app form the app store.

After being on one app for about 15 min in often times freezes up


This app may not be optimized for your firmware and/or device. Try resetting the phone by holding the power button, then slide to power off. Then press the power button once more to turn the phone back on. Try using the app again. Good luck!

3 gs iphone working fine, clicked on safari , looking at website then it froze and now cannot move from the page or use the app at all , having to use the google app, safari now useless


Go to your setttings and open the Safari Option. Use the three options grouped together but on individual rows, "Clear History", "Clear Cookies", "Clear Cache".
Then do a hard reset on your Phone:
  • Press the "home button" and the "off button" at the same time, until the device goes off.
Turn your iPhone back on and see if this has helped. If it does not we have several other options.

My 3G iphone is frozen and wont turn off


Try a reset. Hold down the power key at the same time as the round home key until phone powers down. Release buttons only when you see the apple logo, then wait a min or two for phone to re-boot. You will not lose any data on the phone.
If this does not work, try an actual system reset. Sync iPhone to computer to back up essential data ie contacts apps etc, then go to settings general and reset. Reset all settings as a last resort. This will give you a fresh start and should sort out the majority of any bugs the phone has. A resync with you computer will restore apps etc.
Hope this helps and if so please vote.
Thanks
