Thread: iPhone won't turn on after dropping it...

  1. #1
    Default iPhone won't turn on after dropping it...
    I dropped my iPhone, and by drop, I mean I tripped and fell on my iPhone which was in my pocket and crushed it against the cement.

    Now, it won't turn on. I plugged it in, and the computer recognized it and all that, and iTunes. However, iTunes won't display the songs it has, but does show memory usage. Right now, my phone screen is completely black, and won't turn on. People get a "Phone turned off msg" when they try to call. And another weird thing: My iPhone's name was randomly changed to Mikey's Phone, and I don't know who the hell Mikey is.

    Also, I accidently dropped it again, and then it worked again, and I rebooted it. It worked for a good 5 minutes, then resumed its current vegetable state.

    Any suggestions?

    Unfortunately, I think you have damaged your phone. You may have no choice buy to take it back to apple for repair, or find someone else who does repairs on iPhones. I don't think you will fix this problem yourself.

    if you cant get it to turn on, call apple and claim ignorance and maybe they will help you out if it is under warranty. Just a suggestion.

    Well...that really sucks for me. Damn it. I guess...I'll go and buy the 3G Phone. How is it? Or are the original iPhones about the same?

    I bought this phone in Canada, off eBay, so definitely no chance of getting a warranty...

    take in to apple and tell them you need a free replacement because it was ran over by an apple truck. the only thing I see diffrent about 3g is 3g and a cheap plastic back.

    when I reformated my hd, the first time I plugged into itunes the iphone name was mikeys iphone. I quickly changed it.

    Dude, there is a year warranty for these iphones. So, there should be no questions asked, they will just give you another iPhone.. But you have to try and restore it back to factory. Just tell them its in a vegetable state & you tried to restore but no luck
