Also, you could try to soft reset your phone by pressing the lock key six times? Let meknow if any of these suggestions work. i managed to get it to start i plugged it into itunes and after half an hour it started automatically.. this is very strange. It might have just died. Are you using a 4S? I am, and it's battery life sucks bigtime. Thanks, Shersey This is absolutely normal This is absolutely normal with iPhones battery dead. If it shuts itself off, go leave it in the charger and it will boot itself up if it has gained certain amount of battery power. force it in to recovery mode connect you're phone to you're computer next open itunes on you're computer next go to devices under sources select you're iPhone next tab to where it says info radio button then check that next tab to restore then it will askyou if you want to backup you're settings on you're phone. I would back it up then continue through the restore process then that's it. I have an emergency of my I have an emergency of my own, it's my iPhone is being quite quirky at the moment. It isn't playing any sounds through the speaker, including voiceover. When I turn on Siri, that plays through the speaker just fine, but nothing else place. Things play through the headphones just fine. My daughter, who is cited, said that when the headphones are unplugged The sound buttons will not turn on. Is there some kind of a mute setting that I don't know about? No, this which doesn't help. try forcing it in to recovery mode First open iTunes second plug in the phone next go to devices then select you're iOS devices then select info then tab to the restore button then press enter just make sure you back up you're settings when you start the process.
