    A Genius Can Help

    While you are online, locate your nearest Apple retail store and make an appointment at the Genius Bar. Share with them what has happened and ask for their assistance. Their services are usually FREE--if your iPhone has not been broken or had water get inside of it.

    Good luck.

    No No No... What you have to do is plug your iPhone Into iTines and Sync It with iTunes and then Restore your iPhone To the latest software avalible and then it will work fine.

    Hope That Helped You

    Always the solution to restore your phone to its original state is to do that by way of using I tunes.If you had all your backups with your i phone then you can restore all to its original state.Even jailbroken phones can be restored for warranty purposes using i tunes

    Yes this is simple man.
    Just reset and then plugin to iTunes and they'll make sure that your phone is working fine and you have the latest firmware. Usually after resetting people complain and there is absolutely no need of going to Apple store.
