comment Is there a recall for the iPhone 3G?
@cksum Ooops, thanks for catching that. That's what I meant to say. I type faster than my brain goes sometimes. :-)

@cksum, they don't always have that information. You can skip the registration process on an iOS device entirely after the phone is activated. After that, if the person never syncs their phone to iTunes (and lots of people don't), they will never be prompted to register the device again.

Is it an iPhone 3G or an iPhone 3GS? The logo will be shiny on the back of the 3GS and it will be stamped in regular grey printing on the 3G. See pictures: support.apple.com/kb/ht3939#iphone3g

Err. That should say recovery mode or DFU. Sorry, I'm sick today and can't seem to keep a train of thought.

^Oops- accidentally posted too soon. It has to be plugged in with iTunes loaded before you put it into DFU. If you try putting it into recovery mode, does anything happen in iTunes? It could have had a hardware failure too, but based on the fact that it warms up on the charger we know that at least something is happening that you can't see on the screen.

Sometimes it takes a few tries to get it into DFU because you have to time it just right.

If the phone shut down while in use, it's most likely not an issue with the dock connector. Also, I've serviced thousands of iPhones. Occasionally one would come in showing a thermal readout of over 250 degrees F on the diagnostics, and not one of them ever exploded. This is exceedingly rare.
