Iphone 4 won't turn on
My Iphone 4 went dead last night. Usual ran out of battery, didn't put it on charger in a timely manner. Now it will not turn on. The home button does not work, so I cannot do the home button/wake button reset. On iCloud, it shows that it has 99% charge so it has been charged, just not turning on. Any suggestions?

Re: restarting a phone that has broken home button

when you plug in the phone and charge it, it should turn back on. Sometimes this can take an hour or so before it turns on. If it's been over and hour, unplug it and plug it back in. If it still does not turn on, try a different charger/cable.

If it still does not turn back on when you plug it in, try plugging it in to your computer and iTunes. If it is still not turning on or not recognized, then things might get complicated ...

I think I'm at the complicated stage. I left it plugged in all night and all day today. When I plugged into iTunes via laptop, it is recognized, BUT I have never synced it before on my laptop. (I know, not smart.) So..... it says do I want to let iTunes in on my phone, it then wants me to respond on my phone to okay it. Well, duh, phone isn't on so I can't respond via my phone.
