Answer to: Dead iPhone 3GS, Any way to get it to turn on?Try charging it with a dedicated USB wall charger for a few hours. And then try Recovery mode, if that fails, try DFU Mode. http://www.ihackintosh.com/2009/06/recov...-mode-and-dfu-mode/ Remember that the iPhone comes with a 1 year warranty. Even if the warranty is over, bringing it in and getting it fixed is usualy less expensive than buying a new phone...that is unless you know exactly whats wrong, if you do know whats wrong(and your not under warranty) buying a replacement part is a good idea. Let me know if it works, -Quad.
