Dead iPhone 4

Discussion in 'Personal' started by DollyD, May 10, 2011.

  1. Help! Last night my iphone 4 switched itself off and now refuses to come back on again. The battery is nearly full. Has this happened to anyone else??!! I'm lost without it!! Is it fixable or have I managed to kill it somehow?!
  2. Throw it away and get a decent phone. One of life's lessons - it ain't what's on the outside that makes something worthwhile.

    cyolba, as impressed with Apple as with David Cameron :)

    Try throwing it against a wall.
    It won't fix it but it doesn't half get rid of the frustration :)

    I've had two phones with a tendency to do this (not iphones, one a motorola and the other a samsung) I found that taking the battery out and then putting back in again always did the trick. I would agree with the poster who said take it back to Apple though.
  6. I would take the battery out but the battery intergrated :/ if this had happened in previous phones that would be the first thing I did :/ grrrrrrrrrrrrr
    looks like back to Apple it is then

    Can you not reset from your PC? x
  8. It happened to me once for about 12 hrs, I persisted with pushing all the buttons and charging/connecting to the mac at sporadic intervals over a few hrs and it just came back on again. Has been perfect since and that was about a yr ago.......

    Hold the top and side button down at the same time, for a good few seconds to re-set it.
  10. Phone them and they will send you a new one - it's a common problem.
  11. LoL
