Ok, this is not a goo design. the main circuit board that holds all of the internal programming data, is corrupt. You may be able to restore the functions for a short time by pulling the actual battery for five minutes. totally remove the battery cell from the unit. after the five minute wait, re-install the battery, and power up the phone.

This is a temporary fix, and it may not work if the damage is severe. the unit must be serviced asap.

    Your service provider can use special equipment to extract any saved contacts and pictures as well, if the main core isn't severely damaged. the information may be lost if the damage is serious.

    Ok, the iPhone(original version), dose not have a battery release procedure. only the service provider can replace the battery on this version. Now, the iPhone2and 3g are quite simple. Look at the speaker on the bottom. There will be two little screws. Unscrew the screws, and it will open so you can access the battery and internals as well.

    NOTE(If this unit is still under warranty, do not attempt to open the unit. Take it in to replace the battery(apple store).

The 1st thing to do is have the battery tested to see if it is shorted or defective, that will cause this problem, if that is not the problem (and I think the battery is the problem) the phone main board is shorted out and you will need to replace the phone.

Your digitizer is broken, and with the 2G you will need to replace the entire screen to fix it. It is probably not cost effective to do so.

How to reregister iphone 2g with no contract


First option is to put a legit sim card. - this will be a problem if you bought your iPhone from another country.
2nd option is to jailbreak and unlock your phone. - if you've upgraded your iPhone to version 3.1.3, there's a great chance that you won't be able to do this option.
3rd option is to use a turbo sim which you can find on eBay. check out some items i've searched for you. - this option will work only if you have 2.30 or lower iPhone software version.
other than those 3, i don't know anything more.
