Hey everyone I recently purchased an iPhone 4 16 gb off of Kijiji and the phone is not turning on or anything. It is completely dead even when I charge it and leave it for a while. The seller cannot be contacted for some odd reason. What can be done?

BTW, it still is under warranty until November 2011 for eligible hardware repairs and service under Apple's limited warranty. Any advice?

Will iTunes recognize it? I'm not sure what "everything" is, as it varies person to person. :)

If not, plug it into iTunes and then hold the sleep/home for 10 seconds to put it in DFU. Then restore.

No when I plug it in, nothing happens. iTunes usually opens up but not anymore. It recently got this problem as it was working fine before.

I just hope I can get a new phone. I have been phoneless for 2 days now. And I have charged it for about 8 hours and nothing has been working

Thanks for your help! I know you did the best you could and I will try it a couple more times. If not, then I just hope Apple gives me a new one since its under warranty. Will they need a proof of purchase? I don't have a receipt or anything since I bought it off a random person.

Anytime! :) Your in the united states, right? AT&T?

I'm going to say they won't need a proof of purchase. They didn't with mine, but yet in think the lady checked the numbers in the back room. Since your iPhone can't power on, well, that's out of the question. Do you got the box? I'd bring that.
