    My Iphone is doing nothing when i plug in the usb lead, I've checked the leads and changed the battery but to no avail. There's seemingly no way to connect it to itunes or charge it, which is annoying.

    I'm going to give you everything I can think of. Remember, If your battery ran out of juice, it might take a few minutes for anything to show up on the screen after you plug it in.

    1. Check for lint in the 30 pin dock. Use a pin or compressed air to remove.
    2. Try using a different usb cable, different usb port, and wall charger.
    3. Recheck everything inside the phone as if you were installing the battery again.
    4. Do a hard reset.
    5. There could be a problem with the dock connector in the iPhone.
    a. Connect the cable at both ends and very slightly move the 30pin side up and down inside the iPhone to see if you can get a connection. ​

    If it is still not working, I would still suggest you call Apple even though you voided your warranty by replacing the battery yourself.
