    Hi
    Ive been given a iphone 4 which i was told was not working.
    Ive replaced the battery and done a restore through itunes as all it was doing was showing the apple logo all the time.
    I did a retore using DFU and now itunes recognises the phone, but now it loops between the apple logo and the slide bar to start. I can move the slide bar across, but then it freezes for a few seconds and then shows the apple logo again. Sometimes for a split second it shows available wifi networks before going back to apple logo.

    I can see the O2 and signal bars at the top of the screen when its on "slide to unlock" screen.

    Its currently running IOS 6.0.1

    Any ideas much appreciated?????????????????????????????

    I have the exact same issue.. I was given a water damaged iphone 4 which didn't turn on at all, i took it to a repair shop but they could only get it to show the apple logo. I took it home, connected it to itunes and done a restore and now the apple logo comes on then the slide to unlock comes on, i slide it and it freezes for 5 seconds and then back to the apple logo..

    Is there anything i can do to fix this issue?.. or is it a "send to apple and fork out £££ for a new one?"

    Any help would be great..

    Exchange the OoW iPhone at an Apple store for ~$199.

    Water damaged electronics are usually doomed. There's no magic fix as corrosion does its irreversible damage.

    Next time you need a phone don't buy a broken one.
