    Sorry, but there is no way to fix this without either paying Apple to repair it, or doing it for yourself. Look up 'iPhone replacement screen' or somethong similar on eBay.

    Repairing an iPhone 2G is often more costly than purchasing a new iPhone 3G ($99). Dead spots in the digitizer can be fixed by replacing the glass & digitizer. You might find one on ebay for a few bucks. You will want to take special care not to damage the rear cover or antenna cover when disassembling the iPhone 2G. There are many youtube videos out there that show this process and they make it look easier than it is

    If you have good steady hands and are reasonably tech savvy this repair is only moderately difficult and you could save a few bucks. On the other hand.... spend a few more and a nice 3G for $99 might be the better option.
