Frozen touch pad

I had the similar problem. Found this suggestion on the web to reset iPhone 3G to it's original settings. You may have to restore your media and data files after resetting. It's the only way out for me since I can't get beyond the "Apple Logo" thingy, and I am too lazy to bring it down to the Apple Store.

Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 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.


Good luck.

I forgot my iPhone Passcode. What can I do to unlock it?

iPhone setting:*
- Auto-Lock: 1 Minute;*
- Passcode Lock: On, require passcode immediately, after 15 min or 4 hours etc;*
- Network: Turn 3G Off

Scenario 1: Home screen is active with screen on*
1. Press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2. Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key, then slide to unlock
5. bypassed passcode

Scenario 2:*
1. On the screen of being asked to enter passcode, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2.*Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, DO NOT touch any key on the screen, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
5. Slide to power off
6. press power button to turn on iPhone
7.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key on the right bottom corner, then slide to unlock
8. bypassed passcode

1. When Network setting changes to Enable 3G: ON, "3G" signal shows up, passcode CANNOT be passed through
Go to a underground parking lot or a lift where 3G signal is weak, when 3G signal switches to "E" (Edge), passcode CAN be passed through following above steps
2. When no 3G or Edge signal, above steps don't work

Seems passcode security is related to network status
Possible security hole under Edge

I have a iphone that says disable connect to itunes but when i connect it it says need a passcode but i dont have it

Tsk, tsk..

Here's what you do, click here to open a page where you'll the step by step guide on how to put your iPhone to DFU mode and restore.

To put your iPhone to DFU mode means iTunes will be able to recognize your device, by-passing the fact that it is locked with a passcode. But the bad news is, all data in your iPhone will be wiped out.

Follow my instructions carefully to make your iPhone work again. It's better if you read it first before actually performing the procedure.

Good luck!

My 3gs i phone has frozen and will not let me unlock

Press and hold the home button for 5 to 10 seconds.
If the above step does not work, Then press and hold the home button and the sleep/wake button till you see the Apple logo.

This should solve your problem.
