This answer was rated:

Old 3gs jailbroken iphone. Turns on for a few seconds, after a long time showing the apple logo. Says activation necessary, and then, turns off. It's is super hot on touching. Have dropped a few times on the floor. Before this began, showed a message of " iphone cannot reach telephone service, please restore" and bla bla bla. Itunes freezes once the telephone is conected to my old windows xp. Plus: My power buttom doesn't work.

Steve Herrod :
