    I used the sleep button/menu button combo to restart it. The apple icon comes up for a little bit and then it completely blacks out. What do I do?

    Try pressing the home and sleep button (at the same time) to get it to reboot then. Hold both until it retarts.

    Edit: And I assume your phone is charged?

    Yeah I left it on the charger all night. And I just tried that and it's still just going back to the blacked out screen. It's teasing me.

    Okay, well let's try a DFU restore. Read this link and follow the directions exactly.

    Restore from a backup when it asks.

    Awesome. I'm at work right now and don't have my laptop. I'm going to try it on my lunch break. I'll post back after and let you know how it goes. Thank you so much!
