    iPhone 4 suddenly dead, why did it happen?

    Yesterday I locked my iPhone and it wouldn't wake up, I found here somwehere that if I hold home + lock button it would reset, and it worked.
    It's working fine all day now, but I'm worried if it happens again.

    But my question is, why did it happen?
    Is it software (iOS crash) or hardware issue?

    Most likely software problem, sometimes it like your computer, it just need Ctl-ALT Delete to get it's thinking cap straightened out.
    iPad1 3G 64gb, iPad3 64gb LTE, iPhone4 32gb, iPod Touch G1 32gb
    All JailBroken

    Good Luck!

    Your phone is basically a computer. Sometimes it crashes/freezes. It happens to us all. If it happens all the time then I would take it up with apple. If it only happens once in a blue moon then it's nothing to worry about...
