    This is a rant.

    It's dead, was switched off this morning. Does not power on.
    I tried everything ... left it charging for 5 hours connected to the socket (not usb).

    Nothing ... holding Home and On/Off.
    No reaction at all.

    Not jailbroken or anything.
    I'm pissed. Sorry for that.

    I dont blame you for being annoyed !

    What did you last do with it.

    Were you in damp weather and are the moisture indictors clear ?

    If it won't turn on or react in anyway when hooked up to i tunes then i can only suggest you contact your local apple store to arrange a genius appointment, as they will be able to run further diagnostics on the unit.

    I think the battery just died ... I just left it lying for approx. 12 hours.

    The problem also appeared with my iPad once, it simply discharged overnight, leaving the ugly red flash battery warning on the display.

    I assume that iOS 5 sometimes drains the battery because some process is running wild. Unfortunately it really does nothing at all. It's not even in the system profile as an USB device.

    I also tried the DFU mode trick, holding Home while connecting.
    But believe me, it's dead in the water. it does not even get warm when I plug it in the charger...

    (Damn ... you know I really like high-end Apple stuff, but the old crappy Nokia plastic phones don't die on you just like that)

    Ive been fortunate and had little issue with my 6month old iPhone 4.

    I know its easy for me to type a reply saying that things go wrong Dude, but in todays techno world they invariably do.

    One of the reasons why i purchase apple is their customer service, as well as quality idevices.

    I truly hope you either manage to find a resolution or rectification via an apple genius.

    I contacted T-Mobile. They told me to bring my contract, the phone and the packaging for the IMEI. (Because it cannot be switched on and I don't have the bill anymore)

    They did not promise anything, I probably have to pay a certain fee for a replacement.

    Thanks for all the comments.
