Please perform a "hard reset" on the device by pressing down and holding the home button and the sleep/wake button for up to 30 seconds until you see a black screen with the Apple logo, then release.

ITS STILL HAPPENING
Mac Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Okay, in that case you will need to reset the phone to factory settings. Do you have a computer with iTunes you can connect it to?

I'm on my laptop now but dont have itunes
Mac Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Are you able to open the settings app on your phone?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
ok
Mac Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

If you are in settings you can reset the phone from there. Keep in mind this will delete all data that is stored on the phone, so it will be like having a brand new phone. Do you want to continue?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no
Mac Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 7 months ago

Okay, the only other way is to download iTunes and connect your phone to the computer so you can make a backup, then restore it to factory settings and use the backup to restore the phone. There is still the chance that won't work since the backup was made after the problem occurred, and in that case the only option is to erase everything from the phone and start fresh.

Would you like to try to make a backup?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
