Unless your local Apple store has shortages on stock, I'd never recommend going to a carrier over Apple for issues like this, as Apple rarely gives anything but good service and carriers are usually interested in giving you a bit of grief even concerning warrantied phones...
Does the phone show a dead battery when you try to power it on? (i know you said it wasn't battery related, but i have seen a false % reading before on mine in the past, where it showed 100% and then maybe 20min. later the phone was almost dead)...what happens when you connect it via USB?
I guess Apple Store it is (I got the 4S on the 14th). Thanks.
The phone does not show anything. I plugged it in via USB earlier and nothing happened (kept it in for about 40 min) and nothing happened (and, I had charged it at 8pm last night). And, I think it should flash a low battery pic when the power button is pressed and it doesn't do that.

I've had that happen to me before, with my 4 and 4s. The screen just stays black, it's like it's shut off or permanently in sleep mode. It's happened while I was using it before, it just shuts off. Doing the hard reset has always fixed it me, but I would love to know what causes this! App crash?

Anyway, my question in regards to a hard reset on an iPhone, or my iPad1 I currently have now-- as I'm not 100% sure, but is holding down the home button and the top sleep button together the process of this? And once the iPad or iPhone powers down to wait a moment or two, and then power back on, correct? TIA to anyone who can confirm this. I've had my iPad1 for 1+yrs now(2010) and I don't ever recall having to do this.

I also don't use a lot of apps on my iPad either, just the games my kids have loaded up for when they use it is all. So it does make sense, because you prob have a reasonable amt of apps on your iP and use them often, which then sometimes on a rare occasion you'll get a black screen of death, so to speak.

About two weeks after I purchased my iPad Classic I had the same thing happen. I unplugged it after an overnight charge and got nothing. I thought I had killed the damn thing! I called Verizon and they had me do the power/home screen thingy and it worked like a charm. Hasn't happened since.
