    I have an iPhone 3GS. I plugged it into a 3rd party USB charger in my car. When I got home I noticed the iPhone wasn't on, and it was very warm to the touch.

    Now it wont charge or turn on at all. No matter what button combinations I try.

    My question is this. Do you think I fried just the battery or the whole phone?

    Similar thing occured my to iPhone a couple of weeks back.

    Simply let it cool off near a window. I let mine sit for a whole day and the next day it turned on and gave me an "accessory not optimized error." I then restored it via iTunes, re-jailbreak it, and it's still working fine.

    Yes, you probably did.
    Hope it's still under warranty.

    Damn.
    Try cooling it down by putting it on a window.

    If that doesn't work then it's best to go to the Apple Store. You can call your device the iFried then.

    It's cooled down now, and I've left it plugged in for about an hour... Still nothing. I do really think it's iFried :(
