My iPhone is frozen.. and I can't restart it with the home button and power button because the power button is frozen. Any ideas? I'm thinking about just waiting for my phone to die.. When I plugged it into iTunes it did not recognize anything.

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).

1. Which iPhone do you have?

2. What do you mean by "My iPhone is frozen"? Is it off and you can't turn it on? Is it on and you can't turn it off?

3. What do you mean by "the power button is frozen"? Is it physically jammed in some manner? Is it physically ok, but nothing happens when you push it?

4. Does anything happen if you press and hold down both the home and power buttons simultaneously for at least 15 seconds?
