SOURCE: my iphone 2g no start up only apple logo i try to reset but still

I had this same thing happen. My eventual fix was to upgrade the iphone to OS 3.0 and then use redsn0w to re-jailbreak it. It took me many hours to figure this out, but I don't guarantee that it will work for everyone. It's just what worked for me.

Since then, I have updated Cydia again, and it seems to work fine now. It may have been crossing with other jailbreak apps I had on there when I updated Cydia. This time I did it right away after the restore.

If you need to hard reboot then pleas follow the steps below:

Hold power and home buttons for 20 seconds for the reboot. Then hold them again for 10 seconds, after which you let go of the power and keep holding the home button for another 10 seconds.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

SOURCE: why wont my iphone turn on???????? please help!!!!

Try these resets:

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.

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 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

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.

Also, 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.

Battery only holds for 3 hours despite following all instructions. that's 3 hours of reading time with wifi turned off

I would replace the battery then, if the battery isn't removable then you could buy a used device on eBay for $30.

Iphone 3g proper charging

Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.

Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone:
#1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active, which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan. The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in direct sunlight.
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger.
The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A

There are too many unknown variables in this. One is the charger that you are using. Two is the amount of charge in the battery when you charge it. These are things you must know. However with new chargers you can be sure they wont over charge the battery. If you are still worried about it, put it on charge and check it every hour or so and don't go past 8 hours.

My iphone wont turn on past the silver apple logo.

Open up iTunes, connect the iPhone. Hold down the power button for 3 seconds, hold both power button and home button for 10 seconds, release power button while still holding down the home button. This puts your iDevice into DFU mode, so it can be restored using iTunes.
