My iphone 4 has died - why?

My iphone was working ok earlier, but this evening I went to check my messages and it is completely dead. Have tried to charge it - nothing. Have taken the sim card out (with great difficulty, I might add) - nothing.
Is this a permanent error? Is there anything else I can try?
Thanks

With the sim in try a reset press and hold home and sleep together until the apple logo appears.
See if that helps

If it doesn't come back to life make a Genius appointment at an Apple Store
they will replace it on spot if they confirm it is non recoverable
and it must be under warranty as it is an iPhone 4
Don't take it to your carrier they will mess you about and only send it back to Apple anyway.
by the way Apple do not repair they replace,all defective iPhones go back to an
Apple factory for complete refurb ( probably in China )

the 3G has a 12 month warranty from date of original purchase
If it fails mechanically Apple Genius bar ( at Retail Store ) offer an out of Warranty replacement for 3G at £139 which gets you a fully refurbed 3G that looks and functions like new
unless it's less than 12 months old where it will be replaced free if failed
