Hold the home button (at the bottom of the screen) and the power button (on the right side at the top of the phone) for several seconds until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears.

This will restart the phone. None of the files, photos or music on your phone will be deleted.

Iphone 3gs wont work. white flashlight screen?? please help


If iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or you can't sync iPhone
  1. The iPhone battery might need to be recharged. For information about charging iPhone, see "Charging the Battery" in the iPhone User's Guide.
  2. If that doesn't work, disconnect other USB devices from your computer and connect iPhone to a different USB 2.0 port on your computer (not on your keyboard).
  3. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  4. If that doesn't work, restart your computer and reconnect iPhone to your computer.
  5. If that doesn't work, download and install (or reinstall) the latest version of iTunes.
If you can't make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web
  1. Check the cell signal indicator in the status bar at the top of the screen. If there are no bars, or if it says "No service," try moving to a different location. If you're indoors, try going outdoors or moving closer to a window.
  2. Check to make sure you’re in an area with network coverage. Go to your carrier's website to see network coverage areas.
  3. Make sure airplane mode isn't on. From the Home screen choose Settings, then turn Airplane Mode off.
  4. If that doesn't work, turn airplane mode on, wait 15 seconds, then turn airplane mode off again.
  5. Make sure to include an area code for every phone number in your contacts list that you use to send or receive text messages.
  6. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  7. If that doesn't work, there may be an issue with your wireless service. Call your carrier or go to your carrier's website.
  8. If that doesn't work, restore the iPhone software. See Backing up, updating, and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software or see "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software" in the iPhone User's Guide.
MMS: Original iPhone does not support MMS. MMS is available on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS if it is supported by the wireless carrier. For more information, please see iPhone: System requirements for MMS.

What do i do when my iphone freezes?


When ever the iphone freezes there are couple of steps you can try:
  1. Press the home button till the application closes.
  2. Press the home button and the power button till you see the apple logo.
The phone freezes mainly because there are lot of applications installed or you have used most of the hard disk space used.

My iphone keeps freezing and it wont go to main screen when i press the home button


Press the power button and the home button for 5-10 seconds it would turn off...if you have OS 3.0 or later then use Blackra1n RC3 and it will go in recovery mode after it enters recovery mode...open iTunes...your iPhone will detect you iPhone in Recovery mode,in iTunes click restore,it will ask you to Restore and update...click on that and you`ll be finished..it will get back to its original settings and its done..but if you don`t use an official carrier like AT&T you wont be able to activate it and you would need to use WI-FI and download two software`s from the blackra1n icon on your iphone...One is Cydia and the other is sn0w that allows your phone to work with all carrier`s so do it and tell me here.....

Hey! no need to panic, it seems you have jailbroken your iphone just like me!
This thing has happened with me a lot of times but i keep resetting the iphone by pressing the home and power button for few seconds and it works maybe not the first time or second time. I keep repeating this unless my iPhone comes back to normal

Iphone Freeze


My iphone froze up today, it just gave me a half lit screen and I couldn't even turn it off, nothing would work.  I held the home button and power off button at the same time for several seconds and this seemed to make it worse.  I did the same thing again, and it restarted the phone.  Nothing lost except for 3/4 of the battery life for some strange reason.  All is good, my phone is back!
