Answer to "iPad 3G Front Panel Assembly"If you are asking if the digitizer and LCD are 1 unit(like the iPhone 4), then no.... They are separate.

They are bound to have one if they buy scrap devices. try craigslist
Answer to "What do I do if my iPhone only works when plugged in?"Well.... You could possibly have some corrosion damage. If you purchased the apple care plan then take it to apple... If you want, you can disassemble your iPhone with one of ifixit's tutorials and check it for corrosion damage. you might have caused a permanent short somewhere, and that won't be easily repaired. Water damage is a b***h, I know.
