    Where do I get the LCD for the first gen iPhone?

    I recently brought another iPhone for my family members, but unfortunally, the LCD is broken?

    I'm picking it up in the new year, I got it on ebay for cheap, but I'm not sure if it's just water damanged, or the screen is the problem, (looks just the screen) is the problem.

    Nope, since it's been water damaged, it is most likely non repairable.

    Water logged iPhones are not repairable. The only stories people have is that they immediatly place their iphones in rice or silica gel as a drying agent to dry the phone. Since the phone is turned on, this is not possible anymore.
