Hold down the home key and the power button until you see the apple (hopefully you will see the apple). If this doesn't work, I would plug into itunes and restore the phone.

Go to (settings > general > Accessibility > Zoom) and click turn off zoom. Warning: getting around to just do this is a royal pain in the ***. Be patient.

iPhone 3G & 3GS Power Button Not Working

The Background:

I had an iPhone 3G for a year, no problems... Got the iPhone 3GS the day it came it out. One week later, I went swimming with it in my pocket. I shut it off. Disassembled it, dryed it and parked it in some rice for over 48 hours. Reassemebled it, restored it, and it worked great, EXCEPT for the power button. With the 3GS, I could turn it off by holding the Home button, and turn it on by plugging it up to charge or sync. No biggy.

The Problem:

I thought I just needed a new power button. Ordered the past last week. Just installed the whole ribbon cable (Power, Headphone Jack, Mute, Volume). Everything works EXCEPT the power button! I've cleaned all the connectors, checked everything I can check. Nothing seems to effect it.

Side Note:

My old 3G went to my wife, she dropped it in the sink for a few second, so as precaution, I took it apart, dried it and riced it. After assembly, it worked fine, until a month ago, when its power button went out. What is going on?

Could a drop somehow effect only the power button function on the main board?

HELP!

I have seen this happen wit a few other Iphones and the hardware parts for the power button seem to be very fragile and easily broken.

how to reset password on iphone without itunes

If what you say is iPhone backup password, just with a computer and a tool, iPhone backup password will be reset.

iTunes Password Genius can run in Windows computer. What you need to do is run it on computer, add iTunes backup into it, and set password attack type for backup password recovery. Once all of these done, click "Recover" button is enough.

But if you want to change or disable iPhone backup password, you need to connect iPhone to computer and do that in iTunes.

If the password you say is iPhone passcode, factory reset iPhone is a method. You can reset a new password for iPhone after factory reset. However, all of things on iPhone have deleted too. Now restore iPhone from iTunes backup on computer is a best way. The backup password could be recovered with iTunes Password Genius.

There's a switch on the left side at the top of the iphone that turns the ringer on and off. Make sure this is towards the front of the phone to enable the ringer

You need to set the outgoing mail server to one you can send from your iphone, ie the one your network carrier lists as you cannot send email through an AOL server unless you are using an AOL connection

My Jabra Halo works to play iPhone's iPod music as well as phone calls. So does Jabra Arrow, I'm told. The bluetooth must have A2DP.

the screen/digitizer you got may be for a 3G rather than 3GS compare the connector with that of your old one to see. the 3GS has a black plastic middle, the 3G one has more metal pins.

Hi,
Press and hold Power and home button for few seconds, it will turn off the device, keep the device off for few minutes then press the power button only to make the phone on again, and it should work again properly, This may happens when you try to install apps specially themes which hangs the springboard
