I tried resetting, hooking it up, and i don't know what to do. I don't think i can return it b/c it was jailbroken ... so can anybody help me please...?

You said u dropped it? If it wont turn on then you are sold out of luck unfortunately. You can try taking it to an Apple store and see if they will help you get a replacement, however i doubt this as there is visible damage from a fall. Its still worth a shot tho.

Sorry for your loss.

yah that sucks big time. more than likely you are at a complete loss for the product, well you may be able to sell it cheap to someone who buys broken iPhones, but not for much at all.

if theres no visible damage then take it to a genius and say then when trying to sync, your iPhone froze and wouldn't turn on. if he gets it working, great. If not, you get a shiny new one!

just hand you one presuming they don't find anything wrong, i.e the water sensor etc.

if there is no water damage, no way of them knowing it was physically damaged, or no way they can tell it was jailbroken, then yes they will just hand you a new iPhone.

If they get it working, he won't need a new one, so it won't matter ;)

Depends on if he replaced the boot logo. B/c when he turns it on the first thing its going to show is the pineApple or [PWNED!]

Yep, that's why I never change the boot logo to the pineApple. It's definitely not worth it.
