    Got an iPhone 3g from my friend. I've tried letting it sit on a charger for a while, and then doing the home + wake button combo, and just pressing the wake button to turn it on.. Tried different USB ports to plug it up. Theyre working, my headset charges.

    Anyone have any ideas why it won't?

    I ran the serial number and the warranty is still good. Should I try to mess with it to fix it, or should I just bring it to the Apple store?

    There are 100 different reasons why it might not be coming on. Most...actually all, of them are bad.
