As far as I can tell from searching forums similar to this one, my iPhone has a malady with a unique combination of symptoms.
Early today, my iPhone screen went all white and the iPhone became unresponsive. I tried the usual set of fixes, such as holding power+home and toggling the silent switch and all that. All the iPhone would do was switch between a blank (off) screen and a fully white screen.
Eventually, I managed to get iTunes to recognize it and I restored it.
Now, I have a fully functional iPhone, except that the screen still displays all white. From what I have been able to find from memory on the screen, I can unlock the phone, take pictures with the camera, take screenshots, play music over the built-in speakers, receive text messages, change my ringtone, make and receive phone calls, etc. The catch is, I can’t see any of what I’m doing.
I have an iPhone 3G that is fully updated, and was fully updated prior to the restore. I was not updating apps when the iPhone first went haywire, and to my knowledge there was no data download or upload going on at all, my phone was simply asleep in my pocket.
If anyone has any fixes, please help!
Last resort, of course is to take it to an Apple or AT&T Store.
