Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.
Ouch! if the mainboard of the phone has to be replaced. 8GB board costs around 180$
It won't be cheap, you could try taking it apart and drying it yourself. Take it completely apart, put it in a airthight container filled with rise and close it up, leave it in a warm room for 2-3 days. The rise absorbs the moisture, and the heat dries any water remaining.Then put it back together and hopefully it works. You can probably see a guide on how to take yours apart at http://www.powerbookmedic.com/iphone/

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

SOURCE: water damage. never been near water. we are told it was in cold weather and the condensation caused water to get inside.

Unfortunately water damage is usually permanent because it results in a short circuit which often fries the boards. However, if your electronics device made contact with water while OFF, fear not. It should still work provided that you wait until the innards are dry and the water evaporated. The water build up probably came from water condensation. If it hasn't fried, dry it out REALLY well and hope that it hasn't already been damaged. If you already turned it on without luck, then it looks like you have a broken iPhone on your hands. Sorry.

SOURCE: My iPhone 3G suddenly stopped working. The screen

In certain situations, an iPhone will automatically go into recovery mode after an update or restore issue. If your device is already in recovery mode, you can attempt to restore using iTunes.

Please follow steps on this link http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

Note: Restoring your device will delete all the data from your iPhone or iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPhone or iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.

My iphone 3G is stuck on the main screen and I can't get the icons to open, can't get screens to move and it won't reboot


Plug the thing in and give it a full charge. Then try holding the home and power button until the apple logo appears and the spinning wheel starts moving.

If that don't worked, then your fu.k.d, in which you should take the thing back to the Apple store or call it in for service if you live in the sticks because you have some software glitch. Keep in mind that Apple won't do sh.t for you if you water damaged the unit.

The screen can also freeze if you water damaged the unit or dropped it.

Iphone 3G screen not working after dropping. Not


It sounds like you have some internal screen damage, your LCD may be damaged or your digitizer. A professional will need to take your phone apart and determine the cause.

My iPhone is dead...need a replacement


First thing to do is check the water indicator.

Look directly down the headphone socket on the iphone, using a light you should see a white marker (or red if it's water damaged)

If it's still white take it back to apple and get a new one (if it's still under warranty.)

If it's red and you need a new one, the options are:

Ebay or get a pay as you go iPhone with no contract and unlock it (expensive but no contract)
