If iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or you can't sync iPhone

  1. The iPhone battery might need to be recharged. For information about charging iPhone, see "Charging the Battery" in the iPhone User's Guide.
  2. If that doesn't work, disconnect other USB devices from your computer and connect iPhone to a different USB 2.0 port on your computer (not on your keyboard).
  3. 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.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  4. If that doesn't work, restart your computer and reconnect iPhone to your computer.
  5. If that doesn't work, download and install (or reinstall) the latest version of iTunes.
If you can't make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web
  1. Check the cell signal indicator in the status bar at the top of the screen. If there are no bars, or if it says "No service," try moving to a different location. If you're indoors, try going outdoors or moving closer to a window.
  2. Check to make sure you’re in an area with network coverage. Go to your carrier's website to see network coverage areas.
  3. Make sure airplane mode isn't on. From the Home screen choose Settings, then turn Airplane Mode off.
  4. If that doesn't work, turn airplane mode on, wait 15 seconds, then turn airplane mode off again.
  5. Make sure to include an area code for every phone number in your contacts list that you use to send or receive text messages.
  6. 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, then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    Note: If you enter the SIM PIN incorrectly three times, you may need to contact your carrier for a Personal Unlocking Key (PUK) to enable your SIM card again.
  7. If that doesn't work, there may be an issue with your wireless service. Call your carrier or go to your carrier's website.
  8. If that doesn't work, restore the iPhone software. See Backing up, updating, and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software or see "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software" in the iPhone User's Guide.
MMS: Original iPhone does not support MMS. MMS is available on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS if it is supported by the wireless carrier. For more information, please see iPhone: System requirements for MMS.

If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond See iPhone and iPod touch: Frozen and unresponsive for information on addressing these symptoms.
  1. iPhone OS 2.x and earlier: Press and hold the Home button until the application quits.
    iPhone OS 3.x and later: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears, then press and hold the Home button until the application 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 iPhone continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  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, 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 restore the iPhone software. See Backing up, updating and restoring your iPhone and iPod touch software.

Basically my iphone wont rsetore everytime i want to retore it will come up with an error


Step 1: Find out which generation your iPhone is by looking at this link http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3939
Step 2: Download the correct generation with the most up-to-date number, the higher the number, the more up-to-date it is. Example: A 3GS iPhone, that would be the most up-to-date would be iPhone 3GS (4.2.1/8C148a). The 3GS tells it that it is the iPhone 3GS. The part I have put in bold, is the update number, the higher that number is, the more recent it is.
Step 3: Go into iTunes, with your iPhone plugged in, go to the left side of the screen, scroll down and select your iPod.
Step 4: The right side of your screen should now show the general iPhone information. Scroll down the screen on the right side until you see a button that says "Restore". Hold down the SHIFT KEY on your keyboard and click "Restore" on your screen. This will pop up a menu.
Step 5: From that menu, choose the update you just downloaded and hit OK. Your iPhone will now be restored. After a few minutes, you will be greeted with a welcome screen to re-sync your iPhone.
This is the only method that seems to work.

Iphone 3gs wont charge, wont switch on, not showing on itunes! just dead


The only thing you can do with this issue is :

Hold the sleep /wake button and the home button at the same time for 2 full minutes

if you see a white apple appear- your good - just charge for 4 hours you should be fine

if the iphone still dose not turn on then - it need service

My iphone screen light not working but everything else still working fine


phone 3gs has additional accessiblity functions like ‘voice over’
This function gives u addtional use of iphone with tapping by using two and three fingers
Tap three fingers three times on your iphone screen. It will deactivate the screen curtain and your screen will display as usual.
If not resolved try resetting your iphone by holding down home and sleep/wake button for 10 seconds..
if still not resolved restore your iphone using itunes…..before restoring ALWAYS make a backup. If these steps do not resolve the issue, there is a good chance that the backlight has go out. I hope this helps you! Good luck and please vote if this helps.
