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.
