I recently got an iPhone 3G and its my first iPhone ever. I plugged it into my computer and it worked fine for the first day. I think that during the time I was asleep the phone ran out battery. The next morning I plugged it into my wall charger with no response, just a black, unlit screen. I tried many of the different chargers, with different cords, different wall chargers and having it plugged into my computer, still with no response. I have researched for answers and no ways of turning the phone on will work.

Has anyone else experienced this problem or does anyone know how to solve it? Thank you in advance.

If the phone's battery is completely drained, you may need to let it charge for a few minutes at least before you will get any response from it. To be sure, leave it plugged in charging for at least half an hour, then turn it on by holding down the button on top for a few seconds until the screen lights up. If it doesn't, you likely got a bum unit.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
