    Default OMG Please help! My iPhone is Dead!

    my friend @ work just inserted my iPhone into an altec lansing speaker system for older gen iPods ( inMotion ) thinking it could play music off of my iPhone.

    Well, now my iPhone is completely unresponsive like the battery is dead. It had a full charge when this happened. It will now power on, and when I insert it into the normal charger, nothing happens

    Is there anything I can do to bring it back to life? ...or am I screwed. If I bring it into a Mac "Genius", will they have a way to power it on and then obviously tell I have unlocked it, thus voiding my warranty? I got it back in Aug or Sept when it became easy to unlock.

    I've been using it on T-Mobile and I still have 1.0.2 firmware on it.

    Please any help would be greatly appreciated.

    btw, ive already tried power + home ....no luck

    sorry, but I think its toast. others have reported similar problems after placing it on these ipod devices...apparently, there are diffs between the ipod and iphone in terms of the voltage used by each. also, if you cant power on the device, no apple genius is going to be able to, so no worries. take it back and let the community know how it went.

    thank you for the speedy reply.

    so i guess they dont have any special equipment just to bring it back to life so to speak?

    also, i have an invisible shield skin on the phone now (font + back). can i leave that on when i bring it into apple? ...or does having that on void the warranty as well?

    i also i assume i should take my tmo sim out. should i put the att one in or just leave it empty??

    Leave it (sim slot) empty. Practice crying alot. Bring your Mother or GF. Tell them she bought it as a gift for you, you just turned it on, recharged the battery and this happened!

    I agree with the 'cry' try... either way good luck and let us know if they find out exactly what happened!

    i've already made an appointment w/ a genius, but earliest they had that fit my schedule was 6:45 tomorrow.

    do you HAVE to make an appt? or can you go in and just cry ..and they will fit me in between some other appts.

    never underestimate the power of crying...I can never resist when an undergrad comes up to me full of tears and says they couldn't get their paper done because (insert random excuse here). I always give them an extension!
    I bet if you go in and cry, they'll see you. What's the worst they could do...they send you away!? Pfft, no biggie. Good luck and keep us updated.

    does anyone have any idea what apple gives out as replacements?

    do they give refurbs or new iphones? also, what fw is it more than likely going to have?

    thanx again
