    This is my second iphone.  The camera was working fine one day, the next--all I get is a scrambled screen.  The trouble begins slowly in some instances by being able to see the subject of the photo for a few seconds and before the scrambled screen begins partially filling the screen, then completely.

    dim photo button, and black screen, it was even better before, w/e i clicked the cam the screen would get fluffy like lines of black n white n yellow, and do a hard reset, messing up my WiFi, had to restart again, because it would say no wifi, and also w/e i leave it go 2 standby it freezes.. this **** is all fucked up...

I can't comment on whether or not the hack is at fault here, but I'm sure it didn't help the situation. The iPhone's camera has had some issues with failures and image distortion. If possible, make an appointment at the local Apple store's Genius Bar and have them triage it. Depending on how long you've had the phone (30 days or more) they'll probably offer you a loaner phone and send your phone in for a camera replacement. And BTW, the loaner phone comes with a $30 charge on your credit card. Yes, a credit card is required. If you ask nicely, that Genius might waive the fee, but you still have to put a credit card on file.

Iphone 3gs wont charge shows the battery with small red line but can stay like that for days, bought new charger but still the same...cant get apple sign to come up at first I could and phone...

The battery is probably dead. You can locate a repair service who will replace it for you for under $50, or you could do it yourself, it's not very difficult. You can easily find detailed instructions on the web, and the replacement battery costs about $5 on ebay.I found good instructions here, that will give you an idea of whether you want to undertake the repair yourself.

Turn your Phone in a - iPhone

Are you thinking about buying that new shiny iPhone? Do you like that pretty new interface, and cool touchscreen interface? Well guess what you don't have to wait in line to get those features, lets mod YOUR phone to emulate it!
For these instructions you will need a touchscreen phone running Windows Mobile 5 or 6. We will be using an HTC Mogul 6800 for our mod. Let it be known that you can also mod a Palm based device to look like an iPhone but in this article we will only be focusing on the WM based phones.

1) To add the iPhone look to your dial pad, you will need to find and install:; Simply serch in google - download

2) Next in order to get the nice slide unlock feature, we are going to need to install the Slide2Unlock program. This is freeware and you can download it from below link -

You will have to reboot once the slide2unlock has been installed.

3) Last but not least we will need to install the iPhone GUI. You will need to find a file called
Simplay serch this file on google.

You will need to extract and drag and drop to a folder of your choice.
I used My Documents\iPhone

Once installed on your pocket pc; Navigate to that folder and highlight iPhone and click menu ->edit->copy

Once you have the copy in memory navigate over to the startup folder Windows\StartUp
This time select Menu Edit -> Paste Shortcut

You know have installed your iPhone skin on your Windows mobile phone.
You will need to configure some of the buttons by editing the "config.txt" file located in the iPhone folder that you copied to above (\My Documents\iPhone)
It is in the Following Format :
1. It first has the 16 icons paths as in \Icons\*.bmp
2. Then 16 Names for the icons
3. The then 16 application paths that will run for the apps as in \Windows\calendar.exe for example to launch the calendar
At the point where you have configured the buttons, your phone is pretty much iLike. If you would like to exit this interface, click on the battery.

The last couple things you might want to find would be the official iPhone ringer & maybe some extra icons for you to use.

So Enjoy you'r new iPhone.........

Good Luck!!

Iphone got wet. camera shutter is stuck closed

you might have a lot of corrosion inside your phone.

try to open it up and clean it very well with alcohol.

the main camera does not work probably because of corrosion on its connector to the main board.

see the picture I took a few days ago:


Lens error canon powershot sd1100 is

Apparently, you missed some sand and it just took a while to work its evil way into the works of your camera.

Iphone won't take a charge

I've looked for others with the same problem as you, and I haven't found anything.
I have a few things for you to try, they're rather simple so you may have already thought of them.
First thought, try a different iPhone to USB2 cord.
Try a different type of iPhone charging unit, i.e., car charger, wall charger, etc... Best way to gain access to the more options would be at an Apple Retail store, at least you'll know that the cord you're trying definitely does work.
If the iPhone does connect to your computer, but won't sync or charge, see if you can get it to "Restore".
If you can't get it to recognize your iPhone at all, take it to an Apple Retail store and have them play with it at the Genius Bar.
If you're feeling DIY, try cleaning the contacts on both your iPhone and its cord with some denatured alcohol on a Q-Tip.
If you would like to phone or email me, please feel free. Dan Crowley, 919.280.3101

Hi, I want to unlock my 4gb Apple Iphone can i do that

The site has excellent information on doing that. They even have a way where you don't even need a computer to do it.. (It's under the OS X & Windows section).
