Dennis, he's talking about Android, not iPhone.

All the best

To reset your iphone if this is a software problem do the following, you may
need sighted assistance.
While the 'phone is turned off, hold down the home button and the on/off
button for about 30 or 40 seconds. The apple logo should then appear on
screen but nothing will be spoken.
Release both buttons and then wait.
If all goes well talks will speak.
Otherwise check that you are in the latest ios by going to settings, then
follow the icons until you get to software upgrade or something like that.
If neither works its probably an apple shop solution.
Kind regards,
Dennis huckle.

Hi
One possible solution is to get a can
of compressed air or a air hose to blow out the socket.
This should clear any debris in there if that is the cause of your problem.

If it is a Android problem then you could reset the phone to factory
settings but this can be a real pain.
