    Default gen1 iPhone - back panel replacement
    Hello all...
    found this URL to a back panel for my 1stGen iPhone in aluminum -- IPHONE-BK-PNL-S, iPhone Aluminum Back Panel w/ No internal parts (Silver), Apple Mac and iPod Accessories

    does anyone know, how 'hard' it is to buy same and just simply replace my old aluminum back panel? I understand that there are some "interior" items that I'd need to change over too...and I'm like totally NOT handy....

    is that true? anyone done that? anyone got a link to a FULLY complete new aluminum back panel that I can just replace whole?

    You can buy the assembled panel (just google it)...but they run around $80-$90. I just ordered that same panel for one of my phones. I have swapped them out before. You have to disassemble the internal rails, camera, power button, volume buttons, headphone jack and cables. Not the easiest of tasks....so I dont recommend if your not good with that type of thing. Here is mine waiting on the case.
