    Default Memory upgrade?
    Hey all, got a quick question - I have an old iphone 4 8gig, VZW. Also have an iphone 4 VZW 16 gig, but bad ESN. Is there any way to take the 16gig memory,and install it in the 8gig phone? I know I could switch the motherboards, but with the bad ESN, I cant activate the 8gig.
    What I'm getting at,is can I separate the storage from the motherboard, or separate the radio,and swap them?

    Not unless you have some serious soldering skills unfortunately.

    dont understand why you need extra memory. the cloud gives you infinite memory for movies and music.

    It might be very likely that you damage the hardware of both phones permanently. Unless you really got something with handcrafting and stuff. If that's not the case, I seriously suggest you but another phone, like Sony or htc. These are all great phones with powerful chips and ram up to 2 GB, which is bigger than iPhone 5. Plus, they are somewhat also cheaper.

    I don't want another phone...lol. Don't like Sony. HTC sucks also. Battery life is atrocious and the phones are cheaply made. But thanks for your suggestion...lol!
