    Hey everyone. I've got a question to ask. Something really bitchily wrong is going on with my iPhone. I brought it to school and two of my friends started playing with it, to watch some video trailers I have, and they gave it back. But when they do, the iPhone is stuck on the iPod page, and I can't go back to the main menu!

    I've tried clicking it for several seconds but it still doesn't work. When I tried to switch the phone off by clicking on the wake/sleep button a few seconds, it somehow came to think that I'm trying to get it to sleep, and it slept, but the usual "Slide to power off" thing didn't come up!

    So, I tried restarting the phone by double-clicking both the wake button and the home menu button but that doesn't work either! I tried it a few times, and now it took a picture of the screen! But then iPhone got stuck in the white "flash" thing it does when it takes a picture, and I can sleep the phone, but when I wake it up again, the white flash is still there! I need help. How can I restart the phone?

    Please don't ask me to plug in the phone to my laptop and restore its contents. I've done that to my previous two iPhones, and they asked me to put in the official SIM card that came with the phone, but I can't use that because I live away from the U.S. Any other ways, please! :confused:

    I didn't say double click it. I said hold the home and sleep/wake buttons down.

    Ah damn. Wrong choice of words, very sorry. I meant clicking both the sleep/wake button and the home button.
