    Today when I was bicycling, my iphone fell out of my pocket and landed on the ground. After that my home button did not work. So i connected to my pc. when I did that my mouse and keyboard did not work. So i can't do anything on my computer when my iphone is connected. that means that i can't upate or restore it but everything else works on the iphone. I live in Norway where they dont sell iphone so I cant take to an apple store. I bought it in florda on easter vacation .

    Does anybody know what to do? I need help please .

    You have a few options:

    1. Take the phone to a friend's computer and see if you're able to restore it on theirs. I highly doubt its a software issue since a physical drop is what caused the change.

    2. There're a number of tutorials on how to open up your iPhone. Since everything else is working, Im assuming that something got knocked loose on the inside. Since you don't have the option of taking it to an apple store or sending it in, you'll have to play surgeon and play with the insides of the phone.

    Sorry for not being more help. But you don't have many options.
