I had a problem with my jailbroken 3G I phone not turning on. It shut off one day and everytime i tried to restart it the apple logo would pop up and stay up for 30 sec or so then the screen would just go black and shut off. I tried everything and finally i just held the top power button forever until finally it turned back on, I probably held it for over a minute beefore it turned back on but thankfullly it did, i wasnt happy about the idea of paying $200 for another I phone.

That's NOT a Hard Reset, that's a Soft Reset. A Hard Reset is much more drastic, much more rarely called for, and leaves your iPhone/iPod Touch in an unusable state until it is connected to iTunes. Apple store employees generally won't tell customers how to perform a Hard Reset, as it is such a drastic step and would likely cause more customer-service calls than it solved. http://www.notebooks.com/2007/07/02/how-to-reset-an-iphone/ (Not my website, just a helpful one) Just want to, um, Clarify. You've got great site design, please make sure to get your facts.
