    Well as title, my boy threw up on the wifes iPhone 4, cleaned it up and it was working fine, for some reason the volume buttons were not working so I turned it off and on, then tried to do the latest 6.0.1 update, it came up with verifying update then turned off, and it now won't turn on!!

    Any ideas?

    I have tried pressing home and sleep/wake button for 10/20/30 seconds, when plugging it into a computer nothing happens, screen is dead.

    Any suggestions?

    From the sounds of it, there is an internal short inside the iPhone caused by corrosion from the throw-up. Did you have AppleCare+?
