    iphone Frozen part way through iOS5 installation

    Hello!! Please Help!
    I have just tried to install iOS5 which failed half way through - my phone is now completely frozen.
    I got an error message which was something like 16 .... something (sorry didnt pay much attention at the time.
    How do I switch the thing off. Can I remove the battery or do I have to wait for it to run down?

    I am a complete techo-numpty .... can you tell?

    Please help

    Before you go threw all that extra stuff try doind a hard reset. Hold down the home and sleep buttons untill you see an apple logo and then let go.
