    We just got our 3Gs's last weekend. This morning I checked some mail and came back to it a few minutes later.

    All of sudden it would no longer power on. I know the battery was about 50% when I checked email. The phone has not been jailbroken.

    Hooked it up to the PC (windows 7) and Itunes said it was in restore mode which I have no idea what this really is. Itunes said to go ahead an restore the phone.

    I let Itunes start the process, but then Itunes gave an error code 28. I have no idea what this means. The phone has been flawless until this point.

    Any ideas would be appreicated.

    Thanks.

    Bummer....

    The first one we got had a pulsating buzz in the earpiece. They swapped it out, now this. Very disappointing.

    See this for more info, but you basically have a hardware failure:

    If you had a 3G or below you could fix it.

    Apple store also was able to replicate the issue. I'm sure it's nothing I could have done. I was simply checking email, set it down, and came back a few minutes later to a somewhat dead 3GS.

    Thanks all!
