Try this one:

     Press and hold the "power" and "home" button at the same time for 10 seconds and you should see the Apple symbol come back on.  Once it powers back on, go to your home screen and double press the "home" button.  On the bottom you will see a bunch of applications pop up that are still running in the background.  Long press on one of them and they should start jiggling with an "X" in the corner of one of them.  Press the "X" to close the application, this will not uninstall it from the phone, it'll just close it out.  Once you've closed all running applications, power the phone off and then power it back on.  That should be it!

I've been trying to turn it on by holding both buttons for the past 3 hours. Finally I said forget it then you responded so I tried it one more time & it worked! LOL I guess you have perfect timing!

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Hi janisp1128!

I'm so sorry you are still having issues with your iPhone 4 not powering on! The steps provided by Beatertruck seems to be the correct answer for many others (thanks Beatertruck!). Is your iPhone damaged in any way (liquiid or phisical)? Does it charge?
If it's damaged, do you have insurance on it? You can file a claim with the insurance company by going to phoneclaim.com/verizon or by calling 888-881-2622. You can also visit a store location to have a hands-on evaluation vzw.com/storelocator

Keep me posted!
