I am going to have you try something:

Press and hold the On (power) button and the Home (circle) button at the same time for at 20 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

does no good
Expert:  Samuel White replied 9 months ago.

Please try it multiple times.

Expert:  Samuel White replied 9 months ago.

Because if this does not work it gets much much more difficult.

i have tried this but will not quit white circle spinning in middle of screen
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
this is ridiculous!
Expert:  Samuel White replied 9 months ago.

That does not sound right because this is the solution to the issue. We can do a factory reset which will reset the phone completely.
