Iphone wont turn on

A few weeks ago, I was on the phone to someone and my iphone just randomly turned off while in the middle of a conversation. Nothing happened when I pressed any of the buttons, or when I put it on charge. When someone called me it kept on ringing as if I wasn't answering but it wasn't saying I had a missed call as the screen was just black. I took it back to the shop where I bought it but didn't want to send it off for repair as I didn't have another phone to use. But when I got to the shop and explained what had happened to it, it came on all of a sudden and was fine. It was ok up until now. I went out on sunday night and it was fine then but when I came home, it randomly did it again. I saw that I had missed calls and texts and tried to unlock it but nothing was happening then it went off and I haven't been able to make anything happen since then. Nothing happens when I put it on charge or when I plug it into my laptop.

Have you tried resetting it by holding down the sleep/wake button and the home key until the apple logo appears?

Phone battery died. after charging for 30 mins it still wont turn back on. This is the first time it has happened. Phone was never droped and there is no damge to the case of any kind. Phone is only 2...


Leave it on for longer, make sure the usb is connected properly to the iphone so you know for sure its charging. Also try the wall charger rather than a computer. I would leave it for a few hours at least. Sometimes when an iphone has gone really flat it will take a long time to charge to the stage where it can turn on again.
Also make sure it has gotten wet at some stage.

I cannot connect to YouTube,safari crashes and i have no sound. Everything was ok a few days ago. My iphone is new 2 weeks. I feel like screaming pls help


Hello belito33,

Try this first:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (on top of the iphone) button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. The phone will turn off. Then, push and hold it again, until the phone comes back on.

If that doesn't work, try this:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. This will do a "hard reset" and should bring your iphone back to life!

If these solutions don't work for you, take your phone back, you have 30 days to return it for a brand new phone.

Best regards,
Bill

Phone randomly turns off


You shouldn't have bought a Samsung.  I have had this trouble with some old Ericssons; it was caused by the case fastening screws being loose.  Tightening them fixed it.  But if you had the same thing happen with 2 different phones, then it means you should have got a Motorola or a Nokia.

IPHONE wont switch on


You're probably out of luck. I'm actually surprised it worked at all.
