I had almost the same problem with my phone. I changed the battery and I haven't had a problem since. I couldnt get the phone to charge on the computer, only through the a/c plug

Here we go you asked for my help.
Was your phone charging before it died on you?
I hope you didn't fry your motherboard together with charger.
So power and home didn't do anything. OK...
Have you tried different computer and holding power and home button,
(not sure if it would make difference) it wont hurt to try.
This is the part that goes out if charger and computer wont recognize the iPhone.
It costs around $24 to replace. It comes with everything that's in the picture. If you need place to buy it i'll give you the website you can try that next step if you don't solve your not charging issue.
i replaced it twice on one of my 3GS and once on 3G. very easy to replace.

It was charging when I connected the cheap charger, after the charger exploded it wasn't charging even on my computer but it was still on because I made a couple of call. My phone died eventually an hour later because of no charge left. I tried everything u said above.
I believe I need that piece but I'm in the UK what that piece is called so I can google it.
