I wondered if anyone else came across this issue. I have a 1st Gen iPhone and it will not sync or act like it is being charged over USB. The phone doesn't even show up at all in System Profiler or will iTunes find it.

I ended up taking it to the Apple Store near me today and they genius said that he has never seen this before and then said I was out of the warranty time by only 20 days! This sucks!!!

I was forced to upgrade to the new phone with no discount, nothing at all. I feel I was ripped off!

Has anyone had this happen at all? Can I use any of the hacking tools to try and get this thing back or is it nothing more than a brick...

I hope someone has answers for me cause it doesn't seem like Apple does..
