I just deleted Pinterest off my phone and then turned it off because I have low storage on my phone. Only around 450-something MB and so I turned it ofI f and tried to turn it back on again but it won't get past the Apple Logo. I've tried rebooting it several times by pressing the home and lock button at the same time but still won't get past the Apple Logo. I waited 15 minutes from turning it off to turning back on my using the home and lock button and still won't get past the logo. I'm waiting a half hour now and will try to turn it back on in a minute maybe. Is there anything else I can do? Should I just leave it alone for the night and try again in the morning? Or is this something that I will have to take up with Verizon (my carrier) or Apple to get fixed? Please respond as soon as possible, it's important that I get my phone fixed in time! Thank you in advance!

 

Oh and I recently added iCloud too (either Wednesday or Thursday) but I haven't had any problems turning it off and on until now so I wouldn't think that would be an issue but just adding this just in case!

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.2

    Did you try the reset with iPhone connected to Mac/PC?

    I don't think iTunes is picking my iPhone. I plugged it in to my PC with iTunes already opened but it's not showing up that it's found my phone and it's still on the apple logo screen..

     

    Close iTunes and do the hard reset while connected to Mac/PC.
