Thread: What should I do with this broken iPhone?

    Default What should I do with this broken iPhone?
    I have an iPhone 3G and it has tons of problems.

    The power button doesn't work so I can't put it into DFU mode and jailbreak it

    The screen is cracked and started shipping away Pictures

    For some reason the WiFi doesn't work at all.

    The left side of the screen doesn't detect touch.

    I wanted to give it to my mom so she could use it with Nike +, but I guess that only works with the iPods, iPhone 3Gs and iPhone 4...

    I could use it as an iPod, but I mean I already have a iPhone 4.

    Should I replace the screen and try to sell it?

    Throw it up on ebay for a low starting price. It will sell for at least $50 or so.

    I would fix it and give it to a family member who doesn't have a nice phone. Holidays are coming js.
    That's what I did with my 3G when I upgraded to ip4.

    The problems are easy to fix. New audio jack flex cable, screen+digitizer, and then it's all good

    Those items online can cost around $25-$30 including shipping combined. Not too shabby, will raise the value of the phone significantly.

    Fix it if you don't wanna, sell it to me for $50 and I'll do it lol.
