I assume it is on the black screen with the empty battery. If it doesnt come up with the little lightning bolt to show it is charging then it is likely the cable or charger are dead. try laptop USB charging port instead. Note I have had faulty cables that would lock up each USB port tried until I rebooted. try a friends charging rig that you know works. Another thing to check, is pocket fluff in the charge port which may prevent you inserting charging cabel correctly.
Most likely your iPhone battery is dead. If you have the AppleCare and hasn't expired Apple will replace your iPhone battery free of charge.
If it has expired you can pay about $50 (I think) and Apple will replace the battery. If you think that's too much go to Amazon/Ebay and look for an "iPhone Battery Replacement Kit." Remember if you do decide to do the battery replacement yourself. You're voiding your Apple warranty & they won't replace it.
try restoring the phone back to factory settings but hold down home button while plugging it in to itunes it should hopefully kickstart it into recovery mode..you cant get it to restore it may just been down to hardware issues in the phone, after all it is a 2g...you could also try getting an appointment in an apple store if you have no luck restoring and resolving problem but make sure you dont say youve opened the phone up.
1. Remove Sim Card 2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears 3. Replace Sim Card 4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.
Also,Try this: 1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G. 2.) Start up iTunes 3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G 4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable 5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset. 6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
