Chosen Solution

If your iPhone 3G S is frozen or not responding, you may want to try to soft or hard reset the unit.

Soft Reset

1. Press and hold Sleep/Wake on the top of the phone until the red slider appears.

2. Drag the slider.

3. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

If a soft reset doesn’t solve your problem, you may have to resort to performing a hard/factory reset.

Hard Reset

Note: These steps will delete the data off the phone, but you can Restore data using your computer.

Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for about ten seconds. The apple logo will appear and your iPhone 3G S will be reset.

i did the soft reset but when i touch the screen it does not respond


Try the hard reset


thanks, the hard reset worked why does it freezes up


Glad you got it working. Corrupted data might do it. Now hook it up to your computer and restore it and see if it does it again. If so then you need to repair the data on your computer and I would need to know what you're using.
