What does the "Apple" symbol mean on the Iphone 4s screen? My phone won't display anything else.
it could be frozen. do this. hold down the power button and the home button at the same time. hold it EVEN PASS THE RED SLIDE BAR. and wait to see the screen turn black and a new apple on your screen, then release the buttons.
The red slide bar never appears but the white "Apple" symbol does dissapear for about 5 seconds and then it re-appears. Nothing else happens.
Try to force it into recovery mode to restore it: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1808.
Thanks randers4, I read the link that you attached and that looks like it should resolve my issue. If not then I will have to return the Iphone as I just bought it two days ago.
