Question iphone 4 bricked - it doesn't turn ON

Hi to all,
I've an iphone 4 (model A1332) not italian (I live in Italy) and today I tried to update to latest IOS version (from itunes). After that my iphone doesn't turn on.
I suppose it's bricked. So, before put it in the trash, IS it possibile to restart?

I tried with UDF mode (hold power and home button procedure) but nothing appear...

Please help me if there are some possible solutions...

thanks in advance

Are you saying nothing happens when you turn it on ? (Charge it on wall charger over night)

Or it won't boot ? (After charging it over night, plug it into iTunes and reboot it )

If nothing happens at all, likely hardware failure

Was it right after the update or was it working after the update and then did it die?

How did you update?
Did you use DFU-mode to restore?
Does itunes or TinyUmbrella recognize it?

You try holding the home and power button down for 30 seconds?
Plug it to itunes after also to see if it recognizes it and lets you restore it.
DFU mode.

can you go to Apple store in Italy they can confirm if something happened hardware wise that would be the only way to truly brick it. Also even as a total non working phone it's worth something to somebody. take a look on ebay.

Doesn't sound like you are actually putting it into DFU mode. To enter DFU mode hold the home and power buttons for 10 seconds. Then while still holding the home button release the power button. After about 5 seconds iTunes should recognize it. It that doesn't work I'd take it to Apple.

Sounds like you had a Jailbroken iPhone with Ultrasn0w for your unlock. If so, yopu lost your unlock when you updated the iOS. It probably needs a SIM the carrier it is locked to to activate. Are you even getting the connect to iTunes message from the phone? Try connecting to iTunes and see if the phone responds.
