My iphone 3gs shut off and won't turn on... tried rebooting it but saw nothing. How long should I hold the "Home" button and the "Power" button?? If this doesn't work, what should I do??Please help...


If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting
iPhone will likely solve the problem.
Restart iPhone: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone back on, press and
hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can't turn off iPhone or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A reset
should be done only if turning iPhone off and on doesn't resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone
for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button
until the application quits.
Reset iPhone: 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.

IPhone wont turn off


Unlock the screen.
Press the button on the top of the phone and hold it down.
In approximately 5 seconds a "slide to power off" message should appear.
Slide the slider and power off the phone.

If this does not work take it to an Apple or AT&T store.

If this helps please vote for my solution.
