I have had an iPhone 3GS lying in my drawer for sometime and now it won't switch on as someone is keen to buy it from me.I charged it overnight but still no joy.I tried the power button and home button thing together but still no luck.Any more tips,thanks.
BTW I'm not an Apple user

Try holding down the sleep/wake button and home button at the same. This fix worked for a few other people that had the same issue.

I did try that with no luck.I'm lookig towards a faulty usb cable and will get a new one this morning.Being lying around for so long the battery must be flat and unable to put a small charge into it to switch on.
