    Thanks for this info on the hard reset. Like everyone else on this discussion thread, it saved me from going to the store to get another one.

    Same thing happened to me today. I thought for sure it was going to require a store trip.

    I upgraded to the iphone 4 about 9 days ago. I did not restore from a backup. I decided to start fresh and only put apps on it. I had to return the first iphone 4 I got because it would randomly reboot on me. Just sitting on a desk not doing anything it would just reboot about 3 times a day. I returned that one within 2 days of buying it.

    I will assume this was just a freak occurrence and not worry about it. If it happens again in a week though this one will be going back too.

    thanks for your postings. I too was victimized by the suddenly dead iPhone4. Responded to a text at half-time and when *Steelers WON* I tried to send another message but found the phone dead. Haven't even had it a month yet - another strike against Apple and another pro for Windows (as much as I hate to say it)
  • andyroxhat Level 1 Level 1
    Same problem (80% charge, completely dead). Same solution - thanks.
  • chongys Level 1 Level 1
    Just happened to mine. Did reset as recommended and it worked. Thanks everyone.

    Yes, this needs to be addressed.
  • pte262 Level 1 Level 1
    thank you so much for this advice! mine went dead this morning - no explanation - it had 65% battery when i went to sleep last night and then no alarm went off this morning and i couldn't get the darn thing to come on. I was panicing until i found your post. thank you! you saved me a trip to the store and probably some $!

    My iPhone 4 just died this morning. I was replying to a text and paused to put it in my pocket. When I took it out again the screen was blank and it wouldn't turn on. Left it alone for most of the day, tried the hard restart, and plugged it into my laptop, nada. Unfortunately I'm currently serving in Iraq so I can't do much...SAD FACE!!! If anyone has any other useful advice I would be in your debt. This had to happen at the beginning of my tour.

    The same thing happened to my iphone 4. 70% battery charge, received a call, ended the call, put it in my pocket, decided to make another call, Iphone is dead! No hard reset, nothing, no wifi (seldom use it), since I bought it the phone reboot itself randomly, sometimes more often than others and now it had gone a while without doing it until the last final crash. I don't have an apple store so I had to take it to my carrier so they fix it or ship to apple. This is the first time something like this happen to a phone I own. Not so good Apple.

    THank you, thank you! It's a long time since your post, but it just helped me to stop freaking out!
  • Karl Sanders Level 1 Level 1

  • urfriends Level 1 Level 1
    same thing happened.
    frustrated, at the first time hard reset doesn't work. so i worried so much.
    right after i arrived home, i come to this forum. n find recommend hard reset.
    so i tried again (i tried several times when it happens, but didn't work).
    before i try, i plug into my mbp, but no resonese. i plug into power cable, didn't work.
    try hard reset again. then suddenly work ~.~;;
    don't understand why hard reset doesn't work for couple of hours,
    but at the last moment, anywwy it fixed. i hope it wouldn't happen again.
  • eternalgreenknight Level 1 Level 1
    I'm SOOOOO thankful I found this forum! My phone sent a text and went blank. My car was in the shop and I just paid $350 for maintenance... so this was a very bad blow at a bad time. It didn't power up. Didn't register when I plugged it into the computer when I got home. I was freaked out and stressed already with tons to do before my wedding in a few weeks. The last thing I could afford with limited time and money was to have to take the phone in!

    Apple, please fix this issue that tons of people are having!
