#With phones becoming more complicated and increasingly running complex software also increases the likelihood of problems. It is becoming common for smartphones and similar devices suffer the same blocks with which computer users are accustomed to deal, and the iPhone is no exception. Reset a blocked iPhone is an easy process, and you can perform a complete restore back to factory settings using the Apple iTunes software.

 
Instructions

    1- Click the "Wake / Sleep" button at the top of the iPhone, hold until a red slider appears. Press the "Home" button and hold it for at least six seconds until the application goes unresponsive.

    2- Turn off the iPhone, then on again. Press and hold "Wake / Sleep" button until the red slider appears, then drag the slider. Hold the "Wake / Sleep" button again until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
    
3- Restart your iPhone by holding down the "Wake / Sleep" and "Home" buttons together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
