    If you can't get it to boot past the apple logo, you should either put the phone in dfu mode or recovery mode and perform a restore. That should solve the problem.

    Hold Home Button and Sleep/Wake Button down at the same time until it reboots with the silver Apple Logo doing its thing. Just remember to keep holding both buttons down until the silver Apple Logo appears "on its own" don't slide the unlock slider, just wait for the silver Apple to appear, then let go and you've just done a "hardboot" and if that doesn't work then put the iPhone into DFU mode and restore. A trip to the Apple Store may be next, or call AppleCare before you go to the Apple Store...
