To make a long story short my screen on my 8gb iPhone (1st gen) stopped working. Not completely but there's a strip about 1/4" above the bottom of the screen about 1/4" tall that's completely dead (doesn't respond to touch) spanning the width of the screen.
So...has somebody ever dealt with Apple's repair center? If the repair is more than $200 I might as well get a 3G. Any suggestions?
Depending on when you bought your iPhone... you could still be under warranty. From the time you buy your iPhone, you have one year to buy the extended warranty. Costing you only $69.00USD; it covers you for two years on hardware/software & "over-the-phone" tech support.
