I suggest you search for somebody who repairs iPhone's and ask him or her to check the internal electronics of your device. An iPhone is a powerful device. Every inch inside an iPhone is used for electronic components, chips and cables. If you drop an iPhone the chance is big that the internal components have damage. If you're lucky it's only a loose cable inside the phone. A technician can just reconnect it but they need special tools and knowledge to open up and repair your iPhone. You could also go to a store and let them send in your iPhone to the Apple repair centre, but this will be very expensive. The cheapest way is that you search for a local technician who repairs iPhones. They will actually repair your iPhone. The "repair" service from Apple is actually more like a replace service. They will throw your defective iPhone away and will send you a new iPhone (same model as you sent in) and the repair will cost you the same a a new iPhone.
You could visit your local Apple Store. To repair the screen runs around $149 dollars and takes around half an hour. They will also probably offer to replace the entire phone or around $229 dollars. Had a co-worker with the same issue last week and the above is what happened to him. Hope that helps!
has to open the iPhone and replace the part. The
cheapest way is to do it your self and you should get aways with around
$70. The part is available on ebay. If you want to pay to have a
service do it for you there are third party iPhone Screen Repair Services. To try to do it yourself, here's a iPhone Repair guide on how
to disassemble an iPhone. As you can see from the guide, this is not quite that easy. Maybe a
tech savvy friend can do it for you.
No, it's not the end but you will most likely need to take it in to a Authorized Repair Center so they can repair the broken, cracked screen and any internal damage since obviously water or moisture getting inside is an issue.
The iPhone screen is not too hard to replace. A good source for the part would be ebay. Thereis a step by step guide too that explains how to replace the part : iPhone repair guide. There are also third party companies that do it for you : iPhone Repair NYC
I also had purchased an Iphone clone not to long ago. My service provider was AT&T. 90% of the time when my SIM card was inserted the phone would read "emergency mode". I would have no service, I wouldn't be able to receive or send any calls or text messages. I talked to AT&T representatives who would solve the problem for short periods of time but never gave me a permanent fix. I immediately sent the phone back to the seller. I have been doing a lot of research on these Iphone clones and I have seen quite a few times that people have problems in this area, not being able to have service. Also, what you have purchased and think is a genuine Iphone very well may not be. Many models of these Iphone clones now have the Apple symbol on the back and even have the Apple logo displayed on the screen when they start up. This being the case, you may very well have purchased a fake Iphone which would lead to problems with your service provider. I'm not sure how to fix the problem, and for this I apologize because I know how frustrating it is not to have service. But, I can tell you that your best bet may be to return the phone and try something else. All I've heard is that the genuine Iphone is the best way to go. Because these clones are made by independent manufacturers and not sold through AT&T, even though they may seem nice, many people have constant problems with service. Good luck, and if you find an alternative solution please let me know!
If a hard reset (press menu and center button together for 5 sec) and
software restore doesn't cure it , you have a broken digitizer of your iPhone screen assembly. There is an iphone repair guide website that shows you how to do the replacement yourself and a third party iphone repair company that can do it for you.
Shine a bright light on it and see if you can see and resemblance of the display on the screen.
If you can see a display, the backlighting on the screen is broken - if you can't see a display, it's likely the screen is broken or the display controller is broken.
Backlight would be the cheapest fix, usually. Also, you should be able to transfer your phone numbers over to a new phone by using the same SIM card so long as the phone numbers were stored on the SIM card - the only way to find out is to put it in another phone and check out the address book.
