Iphone – Shutdown IPhone when an application hangs


My application hangs. Pressing the home button doesn't return to the springboard anymore. Additionally pressing the power button for 10 seconds doesn't turn the iphone off at all.

Is there any way to force a shutdown?

Best Solution

1 - To 'Force Quit' an iPhone application, hold down the Home button for up to 5 seconds.

2 - To force a reset (in rare occassions when 1 does not work), hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 10 seconds.
