Is my iPhone Lost Forever?

I got a new iPhone the other day, it worked fine when i got it home no problems at all, the phone had been on along time. Im not sure if the battery was low or not.

Anyway the phone was fine, i turned it off to put my Sim Card in, popped it in went to switch the phone back on and... NOTHING.

I've tried
Charging it wall socket
USB Charging with Computer
USB Charging with the Dock
Home + Power button for 15-20 seconds (ive done this like 6000 times expecting it to just come on!)

Nothing seems to be working, nothing at all.

Whats funny is when i plug the "dock" into the Phone end only with nothing else going to it. The blue "Output" light comes on. Surely this light wouldnt come on unless the phone was supplying power to it?

So why wont the phone switch on? It wont charge wont do anything.

Anyone got any idea's? Im about to go nuts soon :p.

I had the same problem with iPhone failing to switch on having behaved perfectly for 2 months. A simple reset brought it back to life.

If the phone is new then it's under warranty and replaceable. Take it in.

I deleted some photos awhile ago from my iphone and some text messages, about 3 months ago. Can I get them back from my iphone directly or can I get then back from the backup? Or are they lost forever?

Well, though iPhone use quite different storage mechanism, still you CAN recover deleted or lost data (such as text messages, contacts, photos etc) with a specific iPhone data recovery program ->

Hope this helps, regards!

Iphone Freeze

My iphone froze up today, it just gave me a half lit screen and I couldn't even turn it off, nothing would work.  I held the home button and power off button at the same time for several seconds and this seemed to make it worse.  I did the same thing again, and it restarted the phone.  Nothing lost except for 3/4 of the battery life for some strange reason.  All is good, my phone is back!
