Thread: iPhone froze

  1. #1
    Default iPhone froze
    Hi everybody,
    I was using Fring application for chat.
    All the sudden friend of mine tried to call me on skype and when I answered, I could not hear anything.
    I tried to close the application but the screen froze. After the screen shot down I could not turn the phone on. I plugged it and the screen came on but when i try to slide the key to unlock, it does not move. I tried power button to shut the phone down but no result, nothing changes. I also tried to call me iphone from the home phone and it rings and the screen comes on telling me who is calling but I can not answer the phone, the screen is frozen.
    Any suggestions?

    Just plug the phone into its dock, then run any of the above mentioned programs to see if its working.

    If not you can try to put your phone into dfu or recovery mode and then try to kick it into normal mode or your very last way out restore back to 1.1.4 via iTunes.

    When I put the phone on dock the screen comes on but in order to access applications I have to slide the button on the screen to unlock, which does not move. All I see is charging battery and the key saying SLIDE TO UNLOCK, which I am trying to slide but would not move.

    here we go:

    Download one of the above mentioned progs on your computer.

    Install it and execute the prog on your computer while your phone is connected.

    Ziphone for instance, execute it, then click on your needed options e.g. put phone into normal mode.(located under the advanced features)
