    Hey guys,

    Just experiencing a problem here, about an hour ago I was using my phone to check something, and as I was about to press the sleep button, I think an app (dunno which) launced when I pressed the sleep button as I hit the app by mistake. ever since then, my phone hasnt woken up from sleep. i had tried pressing the buttons multiple times to no avail. i tried sending it a text from another person's mobile but nothing happened. I plugged it into iTunes and nothing happens either (on itunes and the phone). What could be wrong and how do i fix it?

    -MJ

    I'm assuming your on 3.1? This was a common issue in that firmware. However, give this a go:

    Disconnect iPhone/iPod from all connections: Charger, USB, Dock e.t.c
    Hold down both sleep and home button for 30 seconds or until turns on.
    After the iPhone has booted, if it's in DFU/Recovery mode then plug into the computer and try to do a restore. If it isn't, and loads up to the normal OS then plug into the computer and update to 3.1.2

    There you have it.
