    Default [Advice] Screen went black. It's frozen now.

    I recently got a used 8gb iphone. Everything was working great with the 3rd party apps i downloaded. Until right now.

    I couldn't wake up my screen. I thought my iphone was dead!
    I placed it on my dock. Itunes detected everything. But the screen is still black.
    Eventually the screen came on. It kind of flickered I think.

    However everything is frozen. How do I restart an iphone if everything it frozen?

    I hope my logic is correct in thinking that the screen wouldnt wake up because of a frozen iphone instead of a faulty screen? Please reinforce my suspicions.

    Hi. Sorry about your problem. Without more info, I'l do a DFU restore to 1.1.4. Hope it helps.
