Iphone 3G (1611) Restoring Error
"The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1611)."
Thats the error message I get every time I try to restore my phone through iTunes.
My phone has the connect to iTunes graphic and when I do I get the "iTunes has detected a blah blah blah you have to restore to use this device with iTunes"
I have iTunes 188.8.131.52
I have a PC
I have Windows Vista
I think my iPhone is updated to the most recent OS which I did recently. Not sure though.
I've tried to restore it multiple times on one computer and once or twice on another. Each time I got the same error message. I have tried multiple USB ports on my computer and nothing else is plugged in. I haven't gotten any bit of progress and I have tried putting my phone into what I believe was DFU mode and that failed as well.
This is a list of what would happen on my iPhone and what was happening on iTu

iPhone 3G - Water damage, Error 28 when restoring
My beloved iPhone 3G got wet while sitting in my pocket during a heavy rain shower. At first, I didn't really see the harm (it was just wet, so I wiped it dry) since it was still working. But about an hour later, I got it out again and noticed that the screen was flickering (backlight on and off) and the volume was constantly going up and down, which concerned me a lot since I'm just in love with this machine! The rain must be the cause, especially since the camera window had drops of water behind it. In an attempt to 'rescue' it I tried turning it off, but it kept on rebooting itself! This drove me crazy, since I didn't want the water to make any more (maybe harmful) shortages.
As soon as I came home, I put the phone on the radiator and a small heater blowing warm air onto it. Via Google I found an interesting topic
(also on MacRumors) about iPhones that experienced water da

Unlocked OS 3.0 iPhone 3G (not s) to use with T-Mobile?
I want to get an unlocked iPhone 3G with OS 3.0 to use with my T-mobile network. Now, when I obtain this particular iPhone with the unlock, what do I need to do in order to get T-mobile working on it?
And also, if my iPhone ever bricks, can I restore it back to normal settings (much like restoring an iPod touch if it bricks after jailbreaking it)? If so, will the unlock be gone, or do I have to unlock it again? How do I unlock it again?
(I will be recieving the iPhone already unlocked, so I dont know how to unlock it...)

iPhone 3G not being seen as camera on PC
For some recently my iPhone 3G when I connect to any of my PC’s (running windows XP or Vista) does now no longer detect the iPhone as a camera device? I have not done any updates recently and am running 3.1.3 on the phone. Tried to update with iTunes but it says no updates available at this time.
In Windows if I go to Control Panel – Scanners and Camera’s with the iPhone connected then try to add a device it shows that nothing is available to add?
I have the 3G-16Gb and it pretty much full with music, photos, and video so doing a factory reset would erase everything on it right? Just didnt want to loose all data. Did a Sync the other day so that should be considered a backup correct?
Wasn’t sure if someone has run into this issue before or could suggest something to try.

iphone 3g not booting after LCD flashing white and screen replacement
Hi everyone, this is my first post on the forum and I hope you guys can help me out!
I changed my iphone digitizer assembly (glass, mid frame, home button...) today because my glass was shattered. When i closed the phone at the end, I turned it on, the screen was working but not the home button or the touch response. So i opened the iphone while it was still on (i never should have done that...) and tried to push the 3 cables (#1,2,3) deeper on their connectors. While doing so, the screen flashed white for half a second and went black... After that i couldnt turn it back on and my computer would not detect the iphone when plugged in... I think that happened when i touched the connector #1 (LCD)
I put back my old digitizer assembly but it didnt work either. I dont know much about electronics but could the white flash be a short circuit and my LCD screen be ruined? Could a broken LCD prevent the computer from detecting the iphone or is the whole iphone broke
