nope, it didn't react in any way - dead as a door nail. However the support people of the place I bought the phone from suggested to connect it to iTunes and than to simultaneously press the menu key and the on/off button. They said that iTunes will eventually recognise the phone in repair mode and so will the phone itself. Well I followed those instructions and it worked. The phone is back up and running and without any loss of data
