    Hello,

    Come to you guys out of a act of desperation!, my iPhone has suddenly crashed (hacked, but no problems with it before!). I was using it to play music from a iPod speaker dock (have used it on there before but this time it didn't work, i think they have been broken).

    Then when I undocked it from the speakers and went to take it out of airplane mode, it froze! No screen, wont restart, my mac wont find it when plugged in, nothing!!!

    I have tried rebooting by holding the buttons, and have no idea what elts to do!!!!

    Have you definitely held the top button and the home button for quite a while?

    That should definitely do it..

    Have you tried putting it on the dock again and off?

    I have held both buttons for about 2 minuets (tried both docked and un-docked), Taking it on and off docking dose nothing (it dosnt turn on or even be recognized by my mac!)

    This happened to me once. I left it in it's cradle and went to bed out of frustration. The next morning it rebooted

    It's posts like this that make me wish the iPhone had a removable battery.

    Lots of phone's crash from time to time, but one thing that usually brings them back is removing the battery and putting it back in.
