How to Fix the White Screen of Death on the iPhone

I don’t what it is about my iPhone these days. Maybe my iPhone knows that I’m thinking about getting the iPhone 4G when it comes out. Doesn’t it know that I’ll find a good home for it? Anyway, a day or two ago, I got the white screen of death. The whole screen was white and I couldn’t do anything with it. I did some quick research, and found that all you have to do is a soft reset.

Here’s how:

1. Hold down the home button (the round button on the face of the phone) and the power button (AKA sleep/wake button) on top of the phone for 6 to 8 seconds. You will then see the Apple logo. It will stay on the apple logo for a while (a few minutes, at least it did in my case), and then it will go to the home screen and you’ll be good to go!

NOTE: After I fixed it, I did some more research and one guy said you first have to hold down the home button and the volume up botton, and then hold down the home button and the power button. But I didn’t have to do this. Some of you might though, so I figured I would mention it.
