iPhone 4 Won't Turn On After Attempted Restore

For the past year, my iPhone 4 locks up every now and then (it does not let me slide to unlock) but it always began to work again after 4 or 5 force restarts. A couple days ago, this happened, but it did not work after many force restarts. I restored it to factory settings, and I got to the part where it says to let your phone restart, but after it did, the iPhone turned off and now it will not turn back on. iTunes cannot see it and I have tried charging it and it does not work. It had iOS 5.1.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

By the way, the phone hasn't been damaged or dropped in water or anything like that.

What happens when plugged into mains power? Your Battery main have just DIED or at best gone fully flat. Which can only be recovered by the mains power. Do you get a flashing red Battery symbol with a lightning bolt? Leave for 1 to 2 minutes to see if it gaining a charge and pull the plug. If it shuts straight off then time for a new Battery.

Yep that was it. Thanks, but now it is at the iPhone startup screen for setting up a new device, and it still freezes when I slide the slider.
