    Default is it possible to replace 3G board?
    so is it possible if i bought 3GS board and i install it in my 3G phone... will everything work except the compass feature? does the camera, earphone, mic, etc work normally with 3GS speed? im planning to buy the 3GS board and sell my 3G board.. cuz i think its a cheaper way to upgrade to 3GS.. :P

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but this will NOT work. The internal components are not the same.

    It will work, but you need to replace the digitizer, the LCD, the Dock Connector Assembly, and Camera as well. The only thing still compatible from your 3G is the Vibrator, Home Button, Power Flex, Battery, and Housing.

    Exactly what I was trying to prove. There is no point to doing this. Wait for the 4th Gen to be released
