  1. Bro i cant reset my iphone using all methods when i do hard reset the screen becomes black and it turn on about 1 hour later but the phone is still same it is not reset

    • Hi, usually the reset procedure will not take more then 10 minutes. Unless your phone get some other troubles. Please try to connect with iTune. If still can not work then try to consult with Apple authorized service center.
