    It means that the battery is charging, if I'm not mistaken :p

    A lightning bolt means it is charging. A plug means it is fully charged.

    This means that the battery died, and it is charging it up enough so it can work. :)

    I'm having the exact same problem. I left the phone plugged in for 12hrs. Still the battery icon is red & the phone doesn't start. When I press the power button it doesn't start either.

    I even plugged it into my iMac but I dont see it showing up on itunes. Is the battery completely dead or is there a way to get the phone up & running?

    Probably need to restore it. Hold the home button while plugging the phone into your computer. Don't let go until iTunes pops up with a message saying "Phone detected in recovery mode"

    Does it chirp when you plug it in? If not, could be bad charging cable or bad port. Hope it's a bad cable...

    If the lightning bolt doesn't show up under the battery it's not charging.

    If it shows the battery with a plug symbol it's saying you need to plug it in
