    Dear friends,

    Thank you for your helps. But, I solved the problem in a different way. I went to Apple Store and talked with a service representative at GeniusBar. Actually, I was not sure that they would help me or accept selling a new one without plan. Because, I have called the service line of Apple and the tech rep told me that repair costs $250(flat rate) +$200 part price. And there is no way to buy a new one without buying a plan with it. But, I've already 2 plans from ATT(1 prepaid, 1 contract) and of course didn't want to get the 3rd one. I told about the issue to the GeniusBar guy, then he checked the phone for liquid damage. After seeing that it's clear, he told me that I'm eligible to buy the new one w/o plan by paying the same cost and they'll keep my old one. I accepted and bougth the new one for $300+tax.

    I know it's ridiculous, they didn't even give me the accesories of new one, and this purchase didn't make the warranty extended. But, instead of getting it repaired with a fake screen (as I heard and read this process mostly makes the home button idle and of course the warranty terminated), doing it this way made more sense.

    Apple knows the way of better-earning. They're getting the li'l damaged phone and repairing it with a little cost then selling as refurb for $250+tax with plan. Plus they take the money from new purchase( about $320). Therefore they make the profit more than $600 instead of $450 repair cost.

    Anyway, I imediately bought a Incase brand hard-case and lots of screen protector sheets. And I know that I will be much more careful from now on.

    Hope you never have this type of problem and don't have to deal with these stuff.

There is an iPhone repair service or an iphone repair guide, if you want to do it yourself or have a tech-savy friend do it for you. The part is readily available on Ebay.

My iphone was broken the glass it repairable or not? If,how much will it cost the glass panel?

Yes, the glass panel can be replaced on all iPhone models. Apple charges $199 to complete this service. However, if you have an iPhone 2g/3g/3gs the broken panel can be replaced relatively easily from home for around $20. If you have an iPhone 4, I would recommend having apple replace the glass as the glass is now attached to the LCD (making self repair much more difficult and cost prohibitive).

By default, your iPhone is covered by Apple for one year, but this only includes manufacturer defects, not accidental damage. If you send it to Apple to have it repaired, this is what you will have to pay:
iPhone 3G, Out-of-Warranty Service
8GB - $199
16GB - $299
Original iPhone - Out-of-Warranty Service
4GB & 8GB - $199
16GB - $249
To me, if you're going to spend that much money to get the screen repaired, you may as well buy a new one!

hoped this helped :)

I drop my iphone 3g 16gb and i got no signal

If the phone still powers up with a good screen then your probably damaged your internal antenna. This can be replaced for $30-$50 at most cell repair centers.
