    Okay, I've done everything I could think of. Left it on the charger overnight. Let it charge via the computer. Tried to reset it with home and power. Tried to restore it in ITunes, and it turned on briefly before ITunes said it couldn't restore it. What do I do? Please help, I'm dying without a phone...

    Is it possible that the battery needs replacing, because it won't hold a charge any longer?

    Battery comment....

    The thing is, it doesn't turn on at all unless I'm attempting to restore the damn thing. Most devices will turn on if it's plugged into a charger, regardless if the battery's ****ed. At least, that's my experience. When I attempt a restore via ITunes, the apple shows, but then when ITunes says it can't do it, it shuts back off.

    Could it be a hardware problem? Other than the battery? God forbid, but the motherboard?

    Got it fixed!!!!!

    Okay here's the wierd thing. I tried restoring via itunes. I used 3 diff versions, 8.1, 9.1 & 10. None of which worked. I called Apple for support. They had me hook it up to 10. All of a sudden it started doing it! ****in awesome.
