Hi, I know what happened to my iPhone 3G. Today, it was working perfectly but this night, the home button stop working. So I closed it with the top button, once restarted, the home button wasn't working. But then, it became really slow, everything had a delay of 6 seconds. I try to restart it but it got stuck the shutdown circle animation. And without the home button, I couldn't hard reset it. But suddenly, the screen goes black and now, nothing work. But when I plug it on my mac, iTunes display an error 0xE8000065.
Jeez, I totally lost. I was waiting for the iPhone 4 but I don't when it gonna release in Canada. The closest AppleStore is at 250km.
Hey, I just read your thread. I just signed on and am having the same issue. Did you get the replacement part? And if so, did it work? I am very close to taking it into the Genius Bar and have them look at it. The phone, however, was given to me from a friend and not under any kind of warranty.
