    Sorry, I meant when you plug in the iPhone. You said iTunes won't pick it up. Does your computer recognize it at all?

    Does the computer recognize anything when you plug in it via USB?

My recommendation is that you return it under warranty. There can be a number of things wrong with it and the iPhone is no joke to work on without damaging. Especially if it is not even coming on. If there is no physical damage and no evidence of moisture, I would just get another one. That would be your best bet.

Please rate as at least helpful.

How do i transfer contacts from my old phone to new one


What kind of phones do you use?

If you want to transfer contacts from your old iPhone to the new iPhone, you can simply use iTunes.
1. Start iTunes, go to "Edit > Preferences > Devices", and check "Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically".
2. Plug old iPhone into computer via the USB cable. Click "File > Device > Backup iPhone", and then iTunes will start to make a backup for your iPhone automatically.
3. Connect new iPhone to computer with the USB cable, and choose "File > Device > Restore from Backup". Then pick up the backup of your old iPhone, and click "Restore".
4. iTunes will make a confirmation again, and you need to click "Restore" in the dialog. Then iTunes will start to restore your new iPhone like iPhone 7 with the backup of old iPhone.

Besides, here's also a guide to help you transfer contacts between iPhone and android phone.

How can I sync contacts?


I'd like to recommend you using a data backup tool,
Transfer Contacts from Android to PC

with this, you can selectively choose the contacts to backup, which allows preview.
And you can sync many other data, too.

I have an iPhone 4S 8 gigabytes model number


I would recommend against updating your 4S to iOS 8. If you really want to then I would reset the entire phone (after backup) and then try to update. You can reset the phone to factory by connecting the phone to itunes

Turn iphone off. Power on holding power and home at same time for 10 seconds, then release power button but hold home for another 30 seconds. Screen will stay blank but should be in DFU recovery mode. Plug into iTunes and recover.

Reset and Restore iPhone to Original Default Factory Settings with Recovery Mode iPhone display freezing? iPhone doesn’t detect by or appear in iTunes? iPhone cannot sync with iTunes on PC or Mac? Cannot make or receive calls, send or receive text messages, or access email or the web? Or worse, iPhone simply won’t turn on and does not respond to tap or button press? If the problem still persists after you have reseted the iPhone, or tried various iPhone troubleshooting, it may be worthwhile to invoke recovery mode to restore iPhone to default factory settings, the original state as when you first received and unwrapped the phone.

Restoration of iPhone to original factory defaults will likely to fix all problem, with the downside that all data and information stored on your phone will be lost. Normally iTunes will make a backup automatically when you connect and sync the iPhone with the program, however, it’s still a good recommendation to copy out and backup everything that you may need on the phone before proceed to restore the iPhone.
To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven’t.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related
