    I have a iPhone 3GS that I was trying to reset. I did the reset all content and settings and then it constantly rebooted. Well, I know how to put it into recovery mode, IF the power button worked and I could shut it off. Unfortunately, my son dropped it a few weeks ago and the power button no longer works. So basically, I have the continually circular swirl and cannot power off.

    I have tried a magnet by the plug as some suggested. I have tried pressing on the screen (front and back) near the upper right hand corner and pressing power and home button for several minutes. I have tried holding down the home button while plugging it into the computer. All were no goes.

    Anyone have any other suggestions???

    Thank you in advance for your time and assistance!

    Time to upgrade to that 4S you have been eyeing?

    As you said your power button was broken, I think your iPhone is restarting because of that. You should fix that button
