    I have an iphone 4 16gb, the thing does not turn on any longer. By this I mean, holding power does nothing at all, pluging it in does nothing.
    This what I have tried:
    Master reset (hold the power and home buttons)
    DFU with itunes (was not recognized)
    DFU with Redsnow (was not recognized)
    Charge off computer
    Charge off wall

    I have no clue what else I can try but I cannot take it to apple as it came from ebay... If anybody has some great insight it would be greatly appreciated!

    I should also mention the nearest Apple store is three hours away...

    If it's still under warranty, AppleCare can help you to. No driving involved.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Go here and check to see if its still under warranty.
    It doesnt matter if you're not the original owner, if you dont have the receipt or if you bought it used on ebay.
    They will service it. You can do it thru the mail without having to drive anywhere.
    If its out of warranty they will still replace it for a $200 fee.
