    It was on the charger, I took it off and hit the home button and it blinked real quick then went black. I can hook it up to itunes and it reads and finds it but I can't get the screen to come back on.

    Anyone have any ideas, or has this happened to anyone else before?

    I haven't heard of anything like that before. Your best bet might be to take it to your nearest Apple Retail Store's Genius Bar to see if they can provide you with a simple fix or a completely new iPhone.

    Good luck! (You shouldn't need it, though)

    I've had this happen to me a few times. I don't know what causes it, but I have found that resetting it by holding the home and hold button down for 10 seconds, and then turning it back on, brings it back.

    Oh man thanks a million. That worked. I so started to worry a bit.
