How hard is it to replace the iphone 2g screen vs the 3g?
Ive fixed a couple of 3g's that just needed the screen replaced.
But how hard is it to replace a 2g? And is the screen more expensive?

You have to completely disassemble the phone...making it much more difficult (as a 2g is harder to work on anyways) and you cant just replace the LCD or the digitizer, you have to replace the entire screen assembly which costs over $100.

Well, with a cracked screen (as long as everyone functions properly) your only gonna get about $100-$125 at best for it reselling.....so its up to you depending on what you can buy it for. Personally, not worth it to me.

^Yeah but theres about a 99.9% chance of damaging the digitizer which is about as fragile as a saltine cracker or damaging the LCD with the heat...

Yeah, about that.
I've tried separating the two pieces, and lets just say I ruined a perfectly good iPhone DigitizeriPhone 4, Yellow Custom Glass, 32GB, 4.3.3, non-working home button. And a prototype iPhone 4 White.

don't waste your time if your in it for the money.
i have a broken screen iphone and wouldn't sell it for less then 50 bucks. i ended up buying a new iphone 2g locally for 75 bucks which was cheaper then the new screen and i didn't have to do any work!1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd
