Resoldering iPhone antenna
Hey guys, Clarkey here again with a n00b question. I'm looking to buy an iPhone, my friend has one for sale but he told the antenna and battery needs to be resoldered, is this an easy task? Also how much would one be worth, let's just say it's 8/10 condition and 6 months old. I don't think that is the right description but for arguments sake let;s say they were.

if its 6 months old- it should be under warranty- so get it replaced and it could be worth full value-
otherwise- good luck getting more than 200 for a damaged iphone-
depending on the market around you- 2-400$ if in good working order = 8/10-happiness is a warm iphone~~~~

It's a 2g iPhone so I don't think it's 6 months old probably like a year old now. Anyone else got ideas how much I should offer for it?

Re-soldering the battery sounds so simple right. My advice would be to forget it and look for another iPhone. Don't mess with the battery whatsoever unless you have professional experience, 1 slightly wrong move and ka-boom.
The 3g on the other hand is pressure connected and requires no soldering and is much much easier and safer to replace the battery.The Original Autobot of MMiJesus couldn't turn into a fire engine

^Yup and yup. The antenna is an easy swap though.
But it sounds awfully odd for the phone to have those issues. Someone has screwed with it.
