Thread: How many ways to turn off iPhone?

  1. #1
    Default How many ways to turn off iPhone?
    Digitizer is broken, no way to use "slide to power off" on the screen. How can the iPhone be shut off?

    My ideas:
    1) replace digitizer, that will take about 5 days for shipping. Even if I had a digitizer laying around, the phone will still be on during the repair.

    2) remove battery. I don't even want to go there.

    3) let battery drain. That will take more than a week.

    Is there a simple way to turn off an iPhone?

    if your'e gonna replace the digitizer, you'll be taking enough off that you're gonna have to unplug the battery anyway

    2) remove battery. I don't even want to go there.

    Hold home + power. It should turn off without the need for using the screen.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    ^Yup...and even if you needed to swap the digitizer, disconnecting the screen assembly with the phone on, isnt the end of the world....it would be fine.

    cpjr,

    Repair went perfect. iPhone was still on when I got it all back together a week later.

    With screen assembly completely removed from phone, vibrate switch did not work. So maybe phone somewhat powered down during the repair, or at least some of the circuits were not powered.
