Dead iPhone 3GS?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I was using my iphone today, it was about 20% battery so I plugged it in. I made a phone call then left the phone on my desk when finished (Still charing). I come back a hour later to use the phone and its dead. I have tried holding the power and home buttons and it is still dead. Plugged it into my PC, itunes doesn't detect it either. Idk what to do. I have no warranty on the phone. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Plug the phone in while holding the home button down. I had the same problem with mine and this let it charge.
I have also read that if you plug it into your computer, then reboot the computer with the phone still plugged in it will start charging it.
