Iphone people, Come here!

So I think my phone is a paperweight now. 

I made a phone call and then when I put it down it started vibrating and wouldn't stop! The screen was black and none of the buttons worked. It vibrated for about 3 minutes and then stopped. But it didn't come back on. I went home and it's been plugged in for about thirty minutes now but no screen...no nothing. 

Has any one else have this happen before? 

I checked some Mac forum articles..some people say their phone comes back and others ay they didn't..but it just seems to be luck whether it will or won't. :(

  • Have you tried to do a hard reset? Press the power button and the home button for 10-15 seconds. You might also try a factory reset, which you can do from iTunes. It sucks because you may lose your contacts though....Good luck!

  • *coming out of lurkdom* My 3G did that. I also dropped said 3G in the toilet twice and a hard reset worked each time. Make sure you go and do a backup in iTunes just in case your device decides to give up the ghost.

  • I am not tech savy. You don't happen to have an Apple store nearby? They are extremely helpful there.
