My iPhone 4S crashed and restarted but fails to wake up. It restarts but then stops and restarts again. It won't stop until the battery is dead but does the same as soon as I plug it in.

     Can I wipe and reset to factory without connecting it?

    My iPhone 4 just crashed. It happened a few days ago, and then started working fine. But once again it crashed yesterday. It took me 2 hours for itunes to finally recognize it so I was able to restore it. It worked fine for an hour and crashed again, now it will not start up at all. The screen went from the regular black with the apple logo to now flickering and acting crazy. Ive had this phone since August as a replacement from my old iphone 4. I'm not impressed. It's in perfect shape, i have not dropped it or got water into it. I have an appointment with Apple today in hopes they'll have some sympathy and simply replace the phone since the phone they gave me refurbished was  defective (the sound stopped working a few months ago) I refuse to pay a cent for an iPhone 4 to be repaired. Depending on how they act today, will be the decision of whether I stay with Apple or move to Android.
