You'll need to take to a Genius Bar (Apple Store) or possibly a Verizon Store.  That nasty bug bricks the phone and cannot be fixed without opening the phone up.

Apple is working on a fix but there's no ETA.

Go to an Apple Store. Tell them to unhook the battery for 10 seconds. Then hook everything back up. You could do it yourself but that would void your warranty.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
