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?

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.
