Re: iPhone vs. iPhone 3G
The iPhone 3G has all the features of the first one, plus faster 3G data downloads, GPS, and a better battery life. Externally, the phone's casing is slightly changed, with a thinner edge and thicker middle, but a flush headphone jack and solid-colored back make up the only other major differences visually. Everything else from the screen to the number of buttons and switches on the outside are the same.

Do you mean a replacement glass to put on your 1st gen iPhone? It can get a bit confusing with the 'Generation' labelling, as 2G in fact refers to 1st Generation iPhones (any prior to the 3G, hence 2G - it relates to the data connection protocol more than the hardware version).
So, with that in mind - am I correct in assuming that you have seen a 2G screen for sale?
If so then yes it will work on your 1st Gen (2G) iPhone. I haven't compared the 2G/3G screens that closely, but I do know some of the sensors are located in a slightly different position on the 3G which may in itself be an issue.
Let me know if you want me to further investigate and I'll help if I can!
Apple in there infinate wisdom have decided to change which pins on the ipod connector do charging for the Iphone / Itouch / newer nano's. This means that if you had "old" iphod accessories, you need to buy all new ones in order for your iphone to work. What a neat neat trick for generating revenue - huh!
Thankfully scosche has made an adaptor that just flips the pins around so all your older ipod adapters work with iphones. The part is called the Scosche passPORT Charging Adapter for iphone 3G. It can be found for about $20 online.
