    My phone was working earlier today then i came back from a run to get back to class and all my phone is showing even with restarts is blocks of black and white lines or blue and white lines. It won't even show up in itunes when I connect to my macbook pro. This is my second iPhone, I have a 3g with 3.0 GM installed. Any help would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    Should be under warranty. Make a genius bar appointment or call AppleCare.

    By phone support i think they mean like... help you learn how to use the phone. Not claim an applecare warranty. Try calling anyways. Worst they can do is tell you no. Also, maybe they can do some magic and get you an appointment in a store.

    Just called and they can't do anything but either A. place 300 placeholder on my credit card to send me another phone and send mine back or B. send me a box to send it out though they recommend to just wait till tuesday since it will take longer to send out then wait till tuesday to get an appointment
