Hey D, It's quite simple. Check this out: With the iphone open press the sleep button to lock your screen. From this moment on the screen will no longer be active but all other functions will continue to work- which means that you will still receive calls and can continue to listen to music. To turn the screen on just click on the sleep button once again. You?ll need to confirm the action by sliding your finger across the virtual slider on the screen. Hope this helps! Volcane

Reset


To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond

  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. 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 10 seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

IPhone Black Screen, and nothing


Plug the iPhone into your MacBook, make sure the mac is plugged into a power source and open iTunes, if iTunes detects the iPhone, re-sync it from last back-up ... This should make the iPhone crash, reset and be back to normal. If not, hold down the sleep and home button, keep holding it after the apple logo appears, until it shows a USB plug into iTunes sign, the plug the iPhone into the mac and it should happen as before. Good luck cheers

Here's what you should do: 1. Press and hold the Home button below the screen for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits. 2. 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. 3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. If it continues to freeze 1. Reset iPhone settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but no data or media is deleted. 2. If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPhone. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings. All your preferences and other data are removed from iPhone. 3. If that doesn't work, restore the iPhone software.
