    I'm going to open up my 3g today, just to look around and know what to expect if I buy a different back for it.

    now I got it open, but what did the #3 cable do and how were you supposed to attach/detach it? I think I broke it :S

    It turns out that it was the cable that runs the logic board, and you were supposed to pull up a latch. But I just ripped it out of there. Lol, at least my phone is still working, so I must have got it back in place ok...

    Wow this looks pretty interesting. If I send you my phone and the parts, how much would you charge for this type of service?
    Or better yet, would you be willing to write a detailed guide?

    You're being way to optimistic for something coming overseas through the holidays. I just got my hong kong package that I paid for EMS overnight delivery arrived 8 days after I bought it.

    Well, like I said in the first post, if you dont follow whats going on from the descriptions/pics I have up, than I suggest NOT trying it yourself. The 3g is very "touchy".

    And to do it for you, I dunno. Honestly right now I have no extra time, with the holidays and all.

    There on there, just gotta look harder, and you can get an array of colors off some sites.

    Do you have links to any of these other sites. eBay blocked my account lol

    iPhone 3G/2G Cases
    CPJR, thank you for the post. Very nice work. Question on the 2G case and parts. Why do they send a new face plate. I thought on the 2G's it was an assembly that coludn't be taken apart, where the 3G's are two pieces.

    Thank you

    You are correct, on the 2g if you try to remove the glass...99% of the time you will destroy the digitizer in the process.

    I guess for the same reason alot of places sell the 2g glass (which is usually plastic) by itself....its BULLCRAP.

    If you guys are interested in buying those colored casings I think I gave out the wrong website before. You can go to ecaseshop.com

    They sell them for $35 USD. You can also go on Ebay and you'll find them Buy It Now for $20 $4 Bucks shipping. Not bad.

    I just bought another Blue Back Housing just now. Oh yeah my new Vaja Case came in the mail yesterday. Yay!!, Now I just need an iPhone. :-(

    ^Just lucky I guess.

    I usually check once or twice a day (when Im looking).

    And I will look at "ending soonest" and "newly listed" (as I have got some good deal that had BIN prices...which would have been gone quickly).
