The lcd is working and the hard disk also, is there a way to use it in a different use?
Probably there is a misunderstanding... the phone is not working more, it flash the screen while i turn it on, i tryed to upgrade/downgrade/make a custom firmware... i tryed everything but it's not working anymore as a "iphone". I write here because i dont' want to put it to the bin and i wanna build something different with disassembled plarts.This is the real reason so don't think i'm a stupid guy who want to dispose this wonderfull phone.Now i hope to read more idea like "The Ideanator"! :P

There really isn't much in a highly-integrated, highly-miniaturized device like this one that can be reused, except possibly as a transplant into another iPhone of the same model. (If you can find one with a cracked screen, you might be able to make one working box out of pieces from the two of them.)
It's a perfectly useful music player, palmtop organizer/game/app box with touchscreen control, camera and telephone. What else do you *want* to do with it, that can't be done as well and more cheaply other ways?
It's sad really how fast incredible technology gets relegated to the dustbin.Seriously, the i-devices are a really clever solution to a problem that nobody ever had. "gee, I'm lost" - get a map"Gee, I wish my phone could tell me a good restaurant"..."gee, I wonder if theres a good way to send text messages from a phone"...The phone never solved problems, it created imaginary ones that didn't exist prior. THUS...it's just as useful now as it was then. Granted theres a SHINIER version now, but even the shiny version is not exclusively 'useful'.
For what it's worth, I just picked up a vintage-2004 smartphone -- a Treo 650 -- purely as a replacement for my old Palm Pilot M125, whose touchscreen was dying. I'm not even using it as a phone (I'd need to get it unlocked first), just as a palmtop/organizer.And, frankly, there are a number of things I like better about it than any of the currently available smartphones.The latest-and-maybe-greatest is not always the best choice. Certainly not always the most cost-effective one.
Replied! sorry for misunderstanding
