Iphone bottom half not responding

The apple symbol when I restart the phone has what looks like a lighter grey appearance on about 60% of it, there also looks to be a "crack" in the apple symbol. The phone was working yesterday, is in a protective rubber jacket.

What does the lower half not responding mean? Have you ever seen the "Apple" symbol on restart show two differen colors of grey with what looks like a split in the apple...

I am confused and concerned

Whatever the issue is you cannot resolve yourself. Either there is a loose/faulty cable or LCD display on the phone, or it may have been caused by a fall of some sorts. If there is no visible damage to the phone (cracks, dents, excessive scrathes, etc) it will be covered under the Applecare warranty since it has to be less than a year old.

Bring it to the nearest Apple store, or call AppleCare at 1-800-275-2273

Sound like you have a broken digitizer/screen. If you're out of warranty, there are websites that show you how to open an iphone. If you don't want to do it yourself there are third party companies that do iphone repair.

Restart iPhone

Sometimes all it takes is a restart for the iPhone to become responsive again. To restart your iPhone when it is unresponsive, press and hold the sleep/wake and home buttons until the Apple logo appears (~10 seconds).

Very low battery

It is possible for an iPhone to become unresponsive if the battery drops to an extremely low level. Plug the iPhone into your computer or wall charger and allow it to charge for at least 20 minutes before using it again.

Since this morning, when making a phonecall, others are unable to hear me and I am able to hear them. I have the IPhone 3g. Is this a known problem? What can I do? I'd appreciate any help.

I have about 65 iPhones in my organization that I manage. I have had a few of them have this problem. It seems that the microphone at the bottom of the phone goes out/goes bad. Usually the sound through a bluetooth headset or the/a wired headset still works. The only permanent solution is to replace the phone. If you are eligible for an upgrade, I hear that the 3GS's are going down to $49 from $99 this month.

Hope this helps.

I've had an iphone 3G for about a year now, and jus in the past 2 weeks i've had a hard time charging my phone, with either a wall outlet or my computer. i'll find myself spending an hour jus trying to...

Most likely your iPhone battery is dead. If you have the AppleCare and hasn't expired Apple will replace your iPhone battery free of charge.

If it has expired you can pay about $50 (I think) and Apple will replace the battery. If you think that's too much go to Amazon/Ebay and look for an "iPhone Battery Replacement Kit." Remember if you do decide to do the battery replacement yourself. You're voiding your Apple warranty & they won't replace it.

My iphone wont respond to my touch in the bottem halk

Have you tried doing a hard shut down? Hold the silver button down on the upper right corner and also the home button (center,bottom indented button) together for about 10 seconds. the phone will completly shut off. then wait about 10 seconds and hold down the upper right hand button until the apple appears on the phone then release the button and wait (20-30seconds) . Doing this usually solves all my issues with my iphone when it gets locked up like this.
