I couldn't find any motherboard at all, even on ebay incase someone is looking for one also.

I changed the front display on my iPhone 4 and by accident the battery connector on the mainboard got loose. I am now trying to find a new mainboard, but the only one i found so far was on ebay but its 16GB and not cheap AT ALL....for that price i would rather buy a new one then.
I tried everything i could to fix the problem, i even went out buying a mophie juice pack for 99 dollars hoping it would help as a external battery source, but with no success...
I don't know what to do anymore...

Also. Solder the battery connector to the board if it still possible.

please understand that the motherboard is the sole component that makes it a phone. people are reluctant to sell "just" the motherboard, because all you have left then is a small pile of junk. buy a water damaged phone, and make it yours. fixing water damage is NOT that hard, just time intensive.
Good luck, and have fun learning.unklbyl

First step is to dry it out. I generally take it all the way apart, put it in 1 wrap of cotton cloth in a bag of rice, and let it sit for three days or maybe four. Then, 70% or better methanol alcohol, and clean out the motherboard. The alcohol will get rid of the water resedue. Reflow, reseat, and reassemble. Again, very time intensive, and work intensive, but there are a few people who can do it for you on this forum.

I'll fix either one of those, or buy them off you. I also sell iphone 4 mobos when I have spares, which isn't common, but trade in boards are welcome. For some background, I'm one of the owners of The SmartPhone Clinic, and I personally specialize in repairs that require a rework station.

PM me if you want i have a company that will fix the motherboard for about $75. I had to have my personal iphone fixed because of a broken battery connector as well. they also fix water damage and can replace any connector on the board.

Replacing just the mobo is kind of a silly proposition considering that is basically the heart of the phone. Everything else is really just an attachment to the mobo. It is probably easier and more economical to get a whole new phone.

I don't have any spare 3GS boards ATM. Like I said before though, I can fix them if you'd like. I have a computer controlled IR rework station and can replace anything on the board. I also repair water damaged phones as well as the broken battery connector on the iPhone 4 (which I've repaired a ton of). Basically, as long as the solder pads aren't ripped off the board, I can fix it. I normally use 63sn/37pb solder, or 96.5sn/3.5ag solder if the customer requests lead-free.
I do all of my repairs in a professional shop set up to deal with BGA reballing, and offer a 90 day warranty on all repairs. My shop information is below if you'd like to contact me.

You can PM me for details of quotes of individual jobs, and you should be able to get my shop number as well as email address from the above posted information. I'd post them directly, but do not want the loads of spam that I would receive the minute a bot ripped the email addresses and phone numbers from the forum.

i Phone 4 ios ver4.2.1 Firmware 01.59.00 when in Phone Calls Can I can hear other party but they cannot hear me. It first started with a loot of crackling going on then I would tap on back and it would stop for a little while. Now I make phone call and I hear other party clear but they can not hear me. I have done a tear down and took apart all connectors I could find and reconnected to make sure they were making good connections and I also replaced the assembly at the bottom called the Charge Port Assembly. because thats where I believed the mic makes its connection at. If anyone has run across this problem or has any ideas how to fix this I would greatly appreciate any help. As for now its only a iTouch and I really am jonesin for my iPhone.

For iPhone repair, highly recommend this ebay user dkarhightech. They repaired my iPhone 4 battery connectors when others said it's unrepairable. They worked fast, got my iPhone back in a week. Read their feedback!
