    I've had massive amounts of problems with Beta 3 and today it just hit rock bottom. On Wednesday when i first updated it crashed and the screen was black, so i had to wait for the battery to die before i could get it working again. Today it died but now it won't respond at all. I can't use my power button because it hasn't been working for months. Nothing seems to work. I need a solution fast.

    Why would you load a beta with a broken power button? :eek:

    download tiny umbrella. It will put your phone into DFU mode for you.

    reboot your computer and try again. Sometimes iTunes acts up.

    My iPhone 4 has been acting strange since Beta 2, it shuts down and the only way to turn it back on is to hard reset it (Hold down the power and home button for 8 seconds) or wait until the battery runs out and plug it in.

    At first I thought it was a hardware issue since my Home button wasn't working well so I could't reset it so I changed the home button and figured out it would work if I did a hard reset. I don't know if it has to do strictly with software but I already submitted a bug report to Apple.

    iPhone 4 is just too old man. My friend installed on her iP4 and it was slow and buggy. Whereas, on my iP5 I haven't had a single issue other than some minor keyboard lag

    Hahaha well calling a 3 year old phone too old is being a bit harsh on it, don't you think? I've been using it on a daily basis and it works quite well for me and the latest beta has fixed a huge amount of bugs and made it even faster. Anyway I love my iPhone and i'm not really planning on changing it yet.

    3 years old is a long time in mobile tech. I have no doubt that iOS7 will look and run like a dog on a 4 even in the final release.

    Would you use an iPad 1st gen? Same processor dude. It's slow. The A4 is outdated. Not bashing or anything - I used to have the first gen iPad. It's just outdated because the software is getting newer and newer by the day pretty much - making the hardware obsolete. It's cool you love your iPhone 4, but I hope you realize you'll have to upgrade lol

    Take a wall-charger, like the iPad one. No a USB based connection, power only.
    Connect the dock connector to the phone. Leave the phone side connected all the time.

    1) Gently push the charger into the power outlet, just "dip" it into the socket.
    2) Do that a few times quickly.
    3) Leave the charger connected for 5 minutes.
    4) "Click" the power button.
    5) If you see a red flash inside an empty battery symbol, leave the phone connected. Don't touch it.
    6) If nothing happens be patient. Go to step one.

    Background: Wall chargers generate a voltage spike when inserted into the power outlet. This will trick the phones battery circuit to start charging again.

    Right now, your deeply discharged battery will not even start charging because the charging circuit will prevent that.
