    Default iPhone 3GS not starting
    Hi there,

    I have a problem with my iPhone 3GS. I did not use it yet cos I haven`t jailbrake it.
    So the problem is that is turn off and I can`t get it on. It is not charging too. The trick with Home button and Start button don`t work too.
    When I plug it to the charger it`s not start charging and when I connected to my computer, the computer doesn`t recognize it.
    I have Cydia installed but not jailbroken.
    Please help me.
    Thank you very much.

    how can you have cydia and not have it be jailbroken?

    part of jailbreaking is the installation of cydia..

    you didnt provide us with any information as to what iOS you're running and firmware...

    You may have a problem with the charging port. I would take it to apple, but they may not help you because you ARE jailbroken.

    If you have cydia then it is jailbroken. If you are trying to get it to work on another carrier than the one it was meant for then you'll have to unlock it. Launch Cydia (make sure your date and time are correct or cydia won't work) and install ultrasn0w (click search in the bottom right). That's about as far as I can get you with the no service issue.

    As far as the not charging or being recognized, I have to agree with expl0itfinder. It sounds like your charging port is damaged, or more likely malfunctioning. Replacements aren't too expensive but the 3GS takes a bit more patience for first time people (I myself have taken apart 100's and my very first one I damaged the motherboard). Just make sure you are very careful if you decide to change it yourself.
