    Default iPhone 3GS Dock assembly: Where to find?
    Where can I find a DECENT dock connector assembly (speaker, mic, dock connector)? I've tried eBay but after getting my first replacement, I am having second thoughts. The first model I received had a bum mic, and the second model I received has a bum speaker!! Argh! It is not fun to carefully take apart teh iPhone, remove logic board, just to get to the freakin' dock assembly. I mean, it's nice that it is just an antenna and flex cable clip, but still! It is so annoying to do all that work to find that the mic or speaker does not work.

    Is this normal, as far as getting crap parts are concerned? Are there any other sites that offer quality products? I tried ifixit, but all they sell for 3gs is display junk. Anyone have any luck with cnn.cn? I've tried them with other stuff in the past, but I don't want to get burned anymore.

    Thanks!

    I was looking at possibly going with them (they have auctions up on eBay) but it's like $40, and I just want to be sure I am getting the best that I can

    They are awful and rude. Do not buy from them.

    I got one from amazon. you can search it.
    Um,can't choose one bluetooth headphone between those two. One has longer Standby Time. Another one is cheaper and Wireless.
    I want to have a substantial one for daily call.

    Amazon is like only 1/4 step above eBay. I was asking here simply because there are some very knowledgeable members that either have a connection somewhere, or know of a good site to get the part from.

    That being said, how did it work out for you?
