I had been having some software issues with my iPhone and decided to restore it using iTunes. The phone reset and started syncing all of my apps and contacts back on. I walked away and came back about ten minutes later and the screen had turned a solid white. The phone was non-responsive and was not showing up in iTunes. So I hard reset it using the power and home buttons, the screen went black. Now the phone will not turn on. I tried plugging it into my iMac again and it won't recognize the phone, nor will the phone respond. I also tried plugging it into a power outlet and the phone still won't respond. Please help!

    Try holding down both the power button and the home button for several seconds until the Apple logo comes on.

    If that does not work, try bringing it in the Apple Store.

    My Iphone screen went solid white last night and i was worried that i had killed it because i was at a pool. However, later i felt the phone vibrating so i picked it up and accidentally swiped across the screen (apparently where the unlock slide is) and i started to hear someone talk on the speaker phone. Now i can receive calls and guess my way to my ipod. So the screen itself is either the part that is messing up or the part of the electronics that controls the imaging. I have tried all the different functions i can to reset it: reset, reboot, hard reset and none of them work making me think that its not software but hardware. Going to genius bar today to have it looked at. I'll update this as soon as i get an answer.
