    Default My iPhone = Dead - White Screen of Death

    Am I screwed?

    I have a 4GB iPhone. The other day I got the White Screen of Death (WSOD).

    The phone still "works", its just the screen is white. I've tried restoring and everything to no avail.

    It has been previously unlocked, and hasn't ever been registered with AT&T.

    Am I screwed? Or will they help me out here. Right now it's just the white screen, and I can still slide to make emergency call (all from memory) but you can't see anything. Just white screen.

    It's never been activated on AT&T which is why I think they'll deny me service and probably black list the phone.

    This is what it looks like:

    Any suggestions on how to do that when I can't see anything on the screen?

    I might just sell it on eBay for parts, they seem to be going for 150+.

    Just cut my losses and get something more reliable.

    It kinda sucks though going from a feature packed phone to just something ordinary haha but I also don't want to deal with it screwing up again in the future.
