Held down the power and home buttons for a couple of minutes while I was reading something on my laptop, and my iphone did reboot. I must have held the buttons for at least 5 minutes.

I guess i just drained the battery, and it works now

Iphone its screen has gone half white, can i fix it without taking it fot repair.

You can try connecting your phone up with itunes and restoring as new, but check to see if your in your warranty still apple will fix it if it is in warranty and it isnt caused by accidental, water damage etc, if you try doing it yourself or going to a dodgy shop and you do still have warranty most likely you'll void it, wont matter if your not, but id give apple a ring see where you are with warranty

Screen background has gone white

Hi Guys
I did two things to fix the problem :
  • removed a number of camera and graphic applications which may have affected my phone
  • went to Settings/General/Reset/Reset All Settings.
This fixed the problem
I would probably suggest you try this first before removing any applications as this may be all that is required!

My iphone screen has gone completely white and cant do anything with it

You have one of 3 things going on here.
  1. Software related issue - If this is your case you're lucky! Just perform a hard reset and a restore by following the directions below.
Do a hard reset by holding down home and power buttons together until screen goes black. While holding down home plug the iPhone into your computer. iTunes should now prompt you to perform a restore.

2. Bad LCD - This would require warranty repair/replacement from Apple. If you're not covered you can google iPhone repair for a repair shop. If you want to do it yourself buy your parts on eBay. Not too hard of a repair if you are handy with electronics.
3. Bad Logic Board = Again if this were the issue you would have to use Apple repair under warranty or a 3rd party repair shop. You won't be able to figure out if it's a Bad LCD or Bad Logic board without swapping the LCD for a good one first.
Hope this helps,
Please rate me!

Half white screen

The iphone screen is divided in half and has a connection for each.
Have you had the phone apart recently? if so you may have a loose connection on the LCD
If not you LCD could have just gone bad.
Is your phone under warranty?
If you have Apple Care, call the local apple store and take the phone to them. They will probably give you a replacement under warranty.
If it is not under warranty, find a local cell phone tech and have the LCD replaced or replace it yourself.
The 3G is fairly easy to work on if your really really careful getting the Front Glass off.
