    I have a 2G iPhone that works fine, except for the camera is messed up. The pictures look like below when I take them. Is this unfixable? I had it given to me and there are scratches on the back and I think maybe on the glass over the lens. I'm thinking that or moisture got inside the phone and maybe messed it up. Also wondering how much this will affect my selling price if I try to sell it on ebay. Everything else works fine as far as I can tell, so should I be able to get $200 for it?

    Looks like the image sensor is toast.
    Nobody buys an iPhone for the camera anyway. It sucks even when it works properly.
    Apple chose to put a sub par lens on it and limited the ability to control it via software.
    It's almost like the camera was an after thought.

    My Nokia N75 has a 2mp camera and it takes pictures that are 10x clearer and sharper than my iPhone.
