iPhone 4 taking a nap

Learned something new today about my phone. It was a normal afternoon, I’d spent the majority of it on the phone with folks, received an IM from a work associate, told him to call, and found that the phone was completely dead. Would respond when plugged in, didn’t respond to the power button. So, off I went to the friendly Apple store at the mall.

So, on getting to the store, the guy at the front of the store asks me if I’d tried resetting the phone. I thought I had reset the phone, but NO, apparently if you simultaneously press both the top and front buttons, the device resets.

Another day, another fantastic lesson. Pretty exciting, no?

  1. I just got my new iPhone 4. This is nice information to know. Thank you for saving me a trip to a friendly Apple store. 🙂

    • Yana,

      That was indeed a surprise! I was prepared to have them replace the phone and very pleased, both to have it working and not have to fuss with the replacement.

      It’s been a while since we’ve last spoken, how have you been?
