I'm on my third iPhone now (V1, 3GS and 4), so I'm a little used to dealing with some glitches from time to time...
But this, I have no solution for:
I was driving yesterday using "Navigon USA" on my iPhone 4. The phone was plugged into a charger, so it did NOT run out of juice. Suddenly, the screen went black.
I have not been able to restart it since then ! It is TOTALLY unresponsive.
- Rebooting: Home + Power pressed from 10 seconds to 2 minutes with and without the phone connected to iTunes (in which it doesn't show up). - Recovery mode: plugging it into my Mac with the Home button pressed, then releasing after a while, - DFU mode, - Leaving it alone all night and retrying all of the above the next morning,
It's like something broke inside. (It was not particularly hot or anything...)
Weird thing though: When I call it, it does NOT go to voice mail immediately like it does when it is shut off: I can hear tones in the other phone I'm using to call it, but of course it is not responsive, it just sits there, dead. After about 5 "rings" it goes to my voicemail...
Of course, the next step is to take it to an AppleStore to get a replacement (hoping they have some in stock at the Boston Store...), but I hadn't synced it in the last couple of days, and had shot some videos and pictures I would hate to loose.
Anybody know any mac software that would help me recover those ?
Thanks for any help.

My iphone 4 just went completely dead. I did a reboot - Power switch and home button together for about 20 sec..It's working again! Not sure what the problem is..If it happens again, I am going to send in for replacement.
