It can just the back light must have been shorted out or thw whole display even also can be shorted.

But you will need the help of an repair centre to check it out and replace them.

It is something that can be saved. You will need to replace the screen and digitilzer or reset all settings. You can google scrren and digitilizer and you can purchase it online and install it yourself. Or you can take it to a phone repair store and get it repaired for about 40-100 dollars. hope this helps.

My iphone will not read the sim card. The card works fine in another phone. My phone was submerged in a tub of greasy water and i am tryinng to restore it now.


Ben, Could you try dry it first? Do not turn on.
As you said that your card is not read by iphone, i can see that you already turn it on after it submerged in greasy water. I hope it doesn't short circuit yet. Use hair dryer, dry your iphone through the usb connection hole, leave for awhile, make sure it dry, then try again. Hope this will help. For future, if phone dropped in water, first thing to do is take off battery, or turn of completely then dry it before checking it still work or not.Thanks for reading.

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

your screen have been affected with water. When you accidentally drop your phone in water, DO NOT turn the phone on yet instead put the phone in a bag of rice, the rice helps to seep water. Since you turned on the phone already, there is nothing to do but get the phone repaired or replaced.

Did you try to dry it up. Please remove the battery and the back cover and use your hairdryer on it without heat for sometime. When you are sure it has dried up from inside, dry some more. The insert the battery and put the back cover on and then after crossing your fingers, power on.

Try to factory reset the iPhone with the latest version 3.0 on iTunes and see if that helps if not then its a hardware problem and not the software issue.
