    Have you left it, with the phone switched off overnight plugged into a wall charger?

    You may have a bad battery. If your jailbroken things become a little difficult as you wont be able to take it to an apple store.

    You will need to do a full restore. Once it's restored, make sure you set up as new phone

    Plug your iphone into itunes.

    You'll see a your phone's info pop up- if not just look to the left and you'll see your iphone there. Click on it.

    You will see 'Restore' - click that.

    Job done.
