Well, this is a post on my sister's behalf. It seem as if all of my mac stuff alaways works and everything I buy/give to people as gifts always fails. So, she has a 1G/edge iPhone 8gig that is expierencing some issues. It will not recognize in itunes/finder/etc. The home button is also not working, so when you get deep within a menu or in to text messaging for example, you have to hit the sleep/wake button up top and shut the phone off and turn it back on. The bad thing is she doesn't have applecare on this. Also, when you turn it on, you get the "this device is not designed...diaglouge." She has taken it to the apple store and they just told her, "no, we can't fix it." So, if you have any suggestions, please offer them up. Thanks a bunch guys. I really dont feal like taking another one of these apart right this second, esp. if it is unfixable.
