    Default iphone 2g lcd, in 3g iphone
    So,
    I just got a 3g iphone but the lcd is broken,
    Im gonna be upgrading to this iphone from my 2g as soon as i can get the lcd fixed.

    Im gonna fix it my self,
    but im just wondering,
    can i remove the lcd from my 2g iphone,
    and make it work in my 3g just so i can use that?

    No.

    But an LCD for a 3g is cheap, less than $30 on ebay.

    If i get the lcd,
    all i have to do is install right?
    I dont have to melt the glue off the digitizer or anything?

    The digitizer/glass is a separate part from the LCD, it screws onto the screen frame which the glass/digi is glued too.

    I can swap an LCD in 5 minutes start to finish.

    So does a white, fully responsive screen, with green and purple bars vertically sound like a broken lcd?
