    Default iPhone 3g does not work at all!!?? HELP
    Ok so i got this prob with my iphone. The screen does not turn on does not do anything at all it does not even sound like its on. My computer does not even recognize it and dont charge. i have tried all sorts of types to reset and nothing. i took it apart and the water sensors are fine so i have no clue what it could be...? maybe its the battery? what you guys think?

    Ps Im not to sure if the battery is supposed to bend so easily cus it was bending a lil bit while i was prying it out..

    thanks in advance guys

    If you bend the battery it is very easy to damage it.

    Aside from that, without knowing any actual background on the phone, it could be anything.

    Bummer...I would agree with cpjr, because if the battery did bend then it was probably busted.

    yea it could be cuz it feels some what soft idk if its supposed to but i was barely putting any force on it and it started bending... im also thinkin it could be my usb charger data port cus im sure it should atleast turn on when its pluged up?

    The battery is a little "soft" normally and can be bent SLIGHTLY, but if you damage the cell inside the phone will not work, not even plugged in. It could also be the charging port.....

    Did it just stop working randomly, or did you do something?

    After you put the phone back together, had it been working and charging? Or did you take the phone apart after it had stopped working?
