  mothercranky 19:48 19 May 2008

i was searching forums to try and get picture messenging to work on my phone. i downloaded i brickr thinking it would be easy to work out, as soon as i did i got a load of white writing whizzing down a black screen and its been doing it ever since! about 5 hours now! cant get it to do anything else and am gutted now as it looks like i have lost everything!

what have i done wrong? and how can i put it right?

thanks guys


hello thing you could do is take it in for repair(service center) and they might reflash and recover the phone for you.. best of luck akanic

To reset the iPhone, press and hold both the sleep/wake button (on top of the iPhone) and the Home button (centered below the screen) for a few seconds. When you see the Apple logo, you can let go and the iPhone will start back up.

kind regards akanic

Try this

It is a "last resort" so you will lose settings; indeed you may lose everything including saved music etc.

I don't know anything about this myself, but my son plays with this sort of thing and needed to do this early in his fiddling.

Good luck!
