My iPhone will not turn on. the apple icon appears, then the low batter & charging symbol, then it goes black and repeats. Help please!

It needs to charge. If it still won't turn on after charging for several hours, then your battery has gone kaput. All batteries do that eventually, they're only designed for so many recharges. I don't have an iPhone but for most phones you can simply order a new battery for pretty cheap.

If iPhone has an integrated battery (i.e. you can't take it out) then you'll have to either renew your contract, or buy a used phone off the internet and switch the SIM card (be sure the phone was from the same carrier! AT&T phones have different programming than, say, Sprint.)

You're welcome. In the future, make sure the first time you charge the battery you let it charge all the way (don't take it off the charger at all until its done!!!) then drain it all the way before charging the second time. Plus, if you always put the phone on the charger when the battery is at 50% or something, then after a while the battery will only hold 50% of the charge it used to.

happens to me alot! Let it sit there about 20 minutes and it will charge up! Just needs some charging! Just walk away and do something else for an hour come back! If that doesnt work you need to bring it to an apple store! Theyll change the battery for you! OR, you can use this as an excuse to get an iphone 5! LOL
