So I was given a 4s iphone from my brother who got it from a good friend. The problem is it won't turn on, charge, or be recognized by itunes. I think it's the battery is dead but maybe someone can help me. I checked when I have it plugged in to the wall I get .7v going to the battery and my battery only has the same voltage. I've had the phone plugged in overnight.any help or insight would be great. Thanks

You'd better to get the device to a local store for checking.
Agreed, I'd suggest a visit to your local Apple Store for a Genius Bar appointment. They can test your phone and let you know if it is the battery or if there are other problems with the phone.
