Hi I was having problems with an unresponsive home button on my iphone4. The surgical spirit/rubbing alcohol seems to work for a few hours then: same old problem. I noticed tonight that if I press the home button it does something after about 2 seconds delay so I researched slow iphone home button and found an apple support page that suggested restoring the phone. So I thought I would give it a go. I Started the process and got an error message saying it couldnt restore. I tried again and it seemed to start to go through the restore process. I then got the apple logo and the progress bar on screen of iphone. Then in itunes I got another message stating it failed to restore but now I cant get it off the progress bar screen. No matter what I do (press home button, disconnect from itunes, hold sleep/home button), its stuck. Its now out of warranty period and I use my phone every day (who am I kidding? if I go an hour without playing with it....) anyone any suggestions to get it out of this? Do I just leave it for battery to run down? I have never JB'd the phone and I regularly backup but now itunes doesnt even recognise its connected. I'm guessing a trip to the genius bar is on the cards but nearest is over an hours drive so was hoping someone could give me some sly tips. Hope you can help!
