    Press & hold power button and home button for about 10 - 15 seconds. Let it goes and then power it up normally.

    I am not sure how to reboot? I pressed and held the power and home button for 20 secs at the same time.

    Then I did it where I held the power button for 15 then the power and home together for 15 then just the home for 15

    neither worked

    Have you checked the battery? It sounds like I'm being sarcastic, but I have met a lot of people who make stupid mistakes like that. And, what happens when you do connect it to your (or her) computer?

    LOL... Yes I have had it plugged into my computer for hours and nothing...

    itunes doesn't recognize it and it doesn't show the battery on the phone... it stays a black screen when plugged into the computer.
