    Default [Unexpected Event] Angry girlfriend and iPhone are not friends

    Hey all,

    So, maybe you've been in my shoes before, but my girlfriend was really upset and I did the unthinkable - I glanced at my iphone mid conversation, ending up with my iphone snatched and thrown against the wood floor.

    The screen appears cracked and the touch screen unresponsive.

    I can't seem to shut it down to check to see if it would be possible to recalibrate anything to get the touch screen to work.

    I was able to sync the pictures.

    However I do have an Erica Sadun Voice notes for 1.1.1 on there and I have a beautiful interview on there that I really want to get off. However, my SSH was turned off at the time that it was thrown, so I can't get at the root files by wifi, because I can't turn the Services controlled SSH on by touchscreen on the phone.

    What type of options are there for repair?

    How much does it cost to repair at apple?

    I can't virginize the phone without the touch screen, so will apple not fix it? (if it matters it was also unlocked (BL3.9) and not only JB).

    got any links for me to read?

    Thanks all.

    Erica's voice recorder puts the files in Media/Recordings, so you should be able to just grab them with iphuc.

    [removed because i am a noob]
    Thanks!

    EDIT, i have no idea what iphuc is. I used transmit to access the root folder previously. I'm on a mac. Thanks for your help. I also used Independence to jailbreak around the time that anysim 1.1 came out.

    If it were me, I would get my NEW girlfriend to buy me a new iphone.

    You could try replacing the LCD screen yourself (it comes with the digitizer). It costs about $130 and it is "fairly" simple to replace as long as you can get the iphone opened without additional damage...

    If you google it, there is a company that can do it for you for about $150...

    Depending on your ex (I hope) girflriend's G forces applied to your iphone when salmmed, all other internal components should be ok...

    Good luck!

    [1.1.3] (OTB 1.0.2) 8GB --- ALL OK!

    Where did you find a place selling the LCD for about $130? Every place I've checked, most have it $150+.
    The LCD used to be <$100 around Christmas time and there were tons on eBay shipping from China. Now they're all gone. I don't know what happened.

    your not the only one.
    Guys are geting into trouble with GF / Wife all over the world due to the iphone.
    It stoped cause Bitch SJ went after the guys selling the displays for cheap.

    Your best bet. Tools to open phone + new display.
