What did you do before this happened?
A lot of factors can be considered why this happens:
1. You deleted all content and files
2. You used a tethered jailbreak
3. You installed an app not compatible with the phone

Let me know what you did so I can properly guide you on how to fix it.

Iphones stuck on reboot apple logo


If your iPhone is jailbroken (do not restore from iTunes) Instead try to restore using the jailbreak software used originally.
Please take note as to why I displayed the top message first. As for the iPhone through iTunes, you are stuck in what is known as a boot loop error. A restore from iTunes is required provided your iPhone is not jailbroken. The 5.1.0 release for the jailbreak is not yet out and you will not be able to downgrade back to 5.0.0 once you restore from iTunes.

Hi there I have my sim card installed in my iphone but it says no sim first it stuck in activation mode and I tried to activate it by putting the sim card in and connect it to the itunes but I got error...


Hi there,

Firstly, because your phone is now jailbroken the software may now be faulty and you may have recurring problems with it.

But you should restore your iPhone as a new iPhone, it will wipe EVERYTHING, from the phone but it will also mean your working from a "clean" phone as it where, it will put it back to how it was from the day you took it out of the box.

Follow the details below to restore your iPhone as a new iPhone and then connect it back up to itunes with the sim inserted to activate it, also if you receive any messages on itunes about carrier settings, choose to update as these are what you need to have your network function. Although as I mentioned earlier, I cant guarantee you that your phone will be working and sorted as it is now jailbroken and doing this permantly alters the phones software.

Hope this helps (please leave feedback)

1 - Load up lateset itunes on your computer
2 - Power down your phone completely - swipe to power off
3 - Hold down the home button (circle button on front of phone) for around 6secs and still holding down connect to the computer
4 - When you receive a message on itunes saying that an iphone has been detected in recovery mode and needs to be restored. Continue with this
5 - On the summary page select the restore option
  1. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another. **dont worry if your not asked to do this, you are restoring your phone as new so a back up isnt needed**

  2. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you.
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  3. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    After a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.
