    Plug the charger in and wait at least 2 hours before deciding it's not charging. If the battery went really dead (like 2.4 Volts), it's going to take a while of sitting on the charger before it starts charging (if it does - lithium batteries don't do well when they're discharged below about 2.8 Volts, but some phones won't turn off before that point, so leaving the phone turned on can drop the battery down to 2.4 Volts or even lower).

    If it still won't show any signs of charging by then, it needs a new battery, but a phone that old isn't worth what it would cost to have the battery replaced (just the battery is about $20 - then add at least another $20 for labor and you're about at half what a new one would sell for - no dings, no scratches and a factory-new battery).
