    just 20 minutes ago i was browsing the internet with safari on my iphone and it just suddnly froze

    i cant turn it on off or anything. tyred connecting it to my computer and do a restore but itunes wont accept it as the message i get is

    'Itunes could not connect to the iphone' because an error occurred while reading the device'

    tyred holding the lock button down for a few seconds but nothing happens

    any ideas what i do now?

    i was maybe going to jut let it run out of power over night and maybe when i plug it into the charger tomorrow it may kick start it again? really ive no idea.

    please help

    Hold down both sleep and home and the phone will restart after several seconds.
