    So my phone hit the floor pretty hard today, and since then it has some...issues. It seems as though the battery is disconnected. It shuts off only when I unplug it. It also resets the time and date to 6 pm and Dec 31st. It also will not stop "searching..." and wont allow me to turn on the wifi, the wifi on/off switch is greyed out. I have very little idea of how to fix this. Mainly that if i open it up I wouldn't even know what to look for. Did a simple connector, disconnect, or did the battery get damaged? If its a connector how do I replace/fix it? If someone could help in anyway that would be great. thank you for your time and have a blessed day :)

    I would say if you're not comfortable opening it up don't. Doing so could mess it up even more. Options I would guess are taking it to a repair center or to Apple. I think for $150 they'll replace it with a refurbed 3GS.
