    Question Any way to test vibration motor without being installed?
    I was given an iPhone 3G that had a "leaking" LCD and I successfully replaced the LCD layer of the top half of this phone but the vibe motor is not working as well.

    Would anyone happen to know a testing method I could use to test the motor without having to unseat/reseat the mobo (logic board) and open/close the phone multiple times?

    Does anyone know if a 9v battery is strong enough?

    Thanks,
    Cyph

    I connected 2 AAA batteries together and used it for testing a vibration motor out of a old phone and it worked. You should just use about 3v or less.

    If you have multitester, you can test by that (set it @ Ohm meter (if analog, set it @ 10K))..
    or just a single battery (1,5Volt), enough for testing the vibrator.
    if it's not working, then your vibrator motor is broken.

    anyway, i'm a technical for iPhone specialist.
