    My iPhone has not been "jailbroken", and has only used "official" Apple stuff.

    When I chose to update to 3.13 today it resulted in my iPhone becoming unusable - it just shows the apple and a long empty bar under it.

    I've tried to switch it off (button at the top), but nothing happens. I even took out the sim-card and then put it in again, still, nothing happens.

    How can I re-start it, or otherwise cause it to begin to work again. I don't have a landline phone and need to have the iPhone working ASAP!

    Has this happened to anyone else? If so, what did you do to resolve the problem?

    Help appreciated...

    Try DFU-Mode. Google or check Youtube to see how it's done.

    Had to turn it in to Vodafone (India) repair shop. They said it was a "known problem" and that they had a software program to fix the problem. It took 4 days to get it back (updated and working), and oddly enough, at no cost -- I've had it since January 2009, over a year, so the warrenty doesn't apply. Perhaps somebody forgot to charge me. Oh well, Kush Raho (Hindi = Be Happy).
