My iPhone is Officially Dead

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s officially dead, that’s how I feel about my iPhone right now.

My iPhone is not working, all that’s showing is this screen.

That’s what’s been showing for the past two days or so.

The story behind the dead iPhone is this.

I was in Copenhagen (Denmark) this saturday. It started raining, not the regular rain that we experience every second day or so in Scandinavia. This was different, it was pouring, it was raining cats and dogs, some of the streets were flooded.

I had the iPhone in a pocket inside my rain jacket, and since it was a rather expensive rain jacket, I thought it would be ok.

When I opened to see how it was doing, I could see that it was condensed on the surface. But I didn’t understand that it would cause a problem.

As soon as I got back at the hotel I could see that I in fact had a problem. The iPhone worked, but I could hardly see what was on the screen.

The day after, the screen suddenly worked. I could see everything, but a little blurry. I thought that this meant that finally everything was going to be ok.

But I was wrong.

I have declared my iPhone 3G to be officially dead.

At least I think it’s dead. I’ve been looking all over the web to find a solution, and I’ve tested several. But so far, it’s still completely dead.

    Here’s my suggested solution to this monumental and disastrous problem. Place your iPhone 3G at the southwestern corner of the bed you share with your dear wife. Then place both your size xxx feet very close together pointing in the direction of Karrestadveien 41, 1782 (aka the Mecca of Eastfold). Meditate intensely until you open a transdimesional time-and-place portal in the center of the bed. Let the iPhone sink into the portal. Go to your most advanced calculator and calculate the humidity factor of your GPS position, time, date and relative mood swing. While you wait for the phone to return you can e.g. eat a vegetarian pizze, watch a movie and watch live insects fly about the room. I can almost guarantee that the iPhone will work when the portal opens. Good Luck Mr P Man.

  2. Thanks a lot. I tried what you suggested but unfortunately it didn’t work, too bad because it was such a good advice 🙂

    Ahh That’s a sad news… I hope you can get it fixed from somewhere..
    I also lost my iPhone 3Gs since it was a unofficial jailbroken iPhone and I ended up resetting network setting and phone was dead for almost 4 months… but it’s back in Life now 🙂

    • Mine is still dead, but I’m going to get some help as soon as I get back to work. I have been searching all over the net for some tips, but I haven’t found any that works – yet 🙂

    My iphone isnt dead yet, but i think it plans to commit suicide. It turns itself off during a conversation and goes black now and then. I treat it nicely but it doesnt seem very happy.
