    Question iam confused
    first pictures you where talking about your trace wire ,now your metal cage can you photo edit and circle what your seeing

  3. #23
    the arrow part has the blue stuff or green stuff thhat used to be stuck to the board (circled parts) i know its kinda blurry but you get the point
    is there a way if i can just use it as a ipod
    at this point i dont care if phone function wont work
    is there a way to just restore with itunes and install firmware with some other program????

    Kinda blurry, but if I'm viewing that right, below the screw it looks like there is a large chunk of the trace missing, and blow that, another large area also pulled up from the board.

    Can you confirm that this is what you're seeing there, and if only that large trace on the edge was what was damaged?

    I'm going to guess that this is a ground trace, based on the size and the fact that it's right under the screw there. A broken trace can be fixed if you're good at soldering and have the proper equipment. You'll probably need to take this into a local shop and see if they can patch the traces for you.

    At this point, that's probably your best bet, it would be very obvious to anyone that opened your phone that it has been damaged, so any hope of a warranty repair is gone. So you've got little to lose by having someone try to fix this up for you.

    yes thats right
    i was reading another post about something called a trace fixer
    is that all i need and it will work again cuz i swear i barely touched the trace we were supposed to scratch so do these symtoms of my phone go with this trace theory?

    Red face well actually
    i called iphone care ,"apple"and i asked about repair prices and he told me to call him back on monday for prices on replacing screens boards etc,due to the price drop of the phone repair prices should come way down too ,,i know that me and him were talking and he said that right now screen replacing is 200$ and i said whoa!!!and he said that it should be under a 100$ after monday..so iknow that the chip board i question is 150$ right now,,,iam betting 75to100$..for apple to repair ,and it would be the best bet to get apple to do it

    Anyone???????????????????????

    Call your local electronics shops, tell them you have a bad trace on your phone's board that needs fixed, and if they can do this work. Speak with the service manager. You should be able to find someone willing to do the job.

    Your warranty is already shot, they won't be able to make the problem any worse for you.

    Default Huh?
    I don't think you have a problem with any of the circuitry. If you tried jailbreaking your phone or hacking it in any way, then you have the same problem that many of us have, a bricked iPhone. I have the same phenomenon because I used an unlock method for the Symm that caused the modem firmware to somehow get corrupted. I would wait until the dev team has a new solution to this problem.
