    it was stuck on favourites and the home button wouldn't go back to main screen. Pressing and holding both the home button and the power switch worked.

Hold the home button and the sleep button simultaneously for ~10 secs until you see the apple logo - this resets the iphone and fixes the issue.

How do I reset my iPhone 4 to factory settings? I am trying to sell it and I don't want any information left on it


  1. Tap the Settings app on your homescreen.
  2. Scroll down to the General menu. Tap it.
  3. Scroll all the way to the bottom and tap the Reset menu.
  4. On this screen, you'll be presented with a number of reset options, ranging from just resetting the iPhone's settings to resetting its dictionary or homescreen layout. There's nothing specifically labeled "factory reset"; the option you want is called Erase All Content and Settings. If you're sure that's what you want to do, tap that.
  5. If you have a passcode set on your phone, you'll be prompted to enter it here. If you don't have one (even though you should!), skip to the next step.
  6. A warning pops up to make sure you understand that if you proceed you'll be erasing all music, other media, data, and settings. If that's not what you want to do, tap Cancel. Otherwise, tap Erase iPhone to continue.
  7. It generally takes a minute or two to delete everything from the iPhone, but when the process is done, you'll have a brand-new, pristine (at least from a software perspective) iPhone ready for whatever your next step is.

Need to change the id on my apple iphone4


Reset iPhone to Factory Defaults.

  1. Begin the process, if possible, by backing up the data on your iPhone 4. Do this by syncing the phone (each time you sync, it creates a backup). This lets you save all your data and settings to restore to the phone after the reset.
  2. When that's done, locate the Settings app on your iPhone homescreen. If you've rearranged your apps, locate it wherever you put it. Tap the icon.
  3. Scroll down to the General menu. Tap it.
  4. Scroll all the way to the bottom to the Reset menu. Tap it.
  5. On this screen, you'll be presented with a number of reset options, ranging from just resetting all the iPhone 4's settings to resetting its dictionary or homescreen layout. The factory reset option is Erase All Content and Settings. If you're sure you want to factory reset your iPhone 4, tap it.
  6. You'll see a warning reminding you that you'll be erasing all music, other media, data, and settings if you do this. If that's not what you want to do, tap Cancel. Otherwise, tap Erase iPhone.
  7. It will generally take a minute or two to factory reset the iPhone, but when the process is done, you'll have a brand-new, pristine iPhone ready for whatever your next step is.

My iphone screen is stuck. i tried to reset it so many times, by holding home & power buttons until apple logo appears. but still slider hangs. I can't turn the power off.


What happened before this? You mean you cannot enter the homescreen because you cannot slide to unlock? How about restoring it in iTunes? If you have a back up, just restore and then restore from back up.

Enter DFU mode first so iTunes will detect your iPhone is in recovery mode.

Iphone...cydia...won't turn on/off


You will have to restore in iTunes. Charge your phone and hook it up with itunes open, if itunes doesn't see it then hold homescreen and power together for 6 seconds and release the power but hold homescreen until itunes see's the phone then restore it.sometimes you get lucky and the phone starts when itunes sees it. If not restoring should get you going.

Iphone frozen on white blank screen


Hmm. I've been browsing the net for iphone problems (courtesy of my own) and i remember reading something about this. Look up the Apple website, especially the discussion forums. You might find something there.

In the meantime, try restarting your phone. For that, press both the top on/off button and the Home button together and keep holding them down. Your screen will go blank but keep holding them and the phone will restart.

If this doens't fix things, look up other answers. You might have to restore your phone, like I had to, You should be able to find the procedure to restore easily on the Apple website.

Iphone stuck in call area


Try turning it off by holding the power button on top for a few seconds and then sliding the slider that appears at the top of the screen.

If nothing pops up at the top after holding the power button for a few seconds, try holding the power button + the home button for about 10 seconds until the iPhone reboots.

If you're still having problems after that, connect it to iTunes and press restore.
