    My iPhone 3G hasn't been charged or used in years. Now nothing happens when I plug it in to charge it. How do I make it work again?

    How long did you leave it plugged in? You will have to leave it plugged in and charging for a minute if it's been dead for years.

    It had been plugged in for hours. But I finally got smart and tried a different cable. Seems to be charging, now.,

    Leaving a device fully discharged for that long is not healthy for the battery

    Not surprised. If the battery's dead, what;'s the best way to get it replaced?
