    98% of the parts you'll buy if not from the States, will be from China! are you getting good deals on your eBay sellers? I know a fantastic Chinese company I'll gladly put you in touch with!

    That would be very sweet well I'm trying some different sellers but some of them has some faulty parts which I Them have to return and so on, which is waste of time.. but that's proberply the dangers when not buying OEM parts

    The OEM parts I have bought have all bren fully functional..

    I have a request:

    Anyone know a reliable source for 3g and 3gs front glass & digitizer with the 3 small round sensor circles at the top of glass which are dark blue in color. Original real Apple screens have dark blue sensor circles. Aftermarket seem to be purple or others light blue.

    Where can I find the real screens?

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Hello everyone, I am new to this forum but already can't get enough of it. I repair all models of iphones including the 4. I am so sick of the ebay and amazon sellers whether it's shipping issues or faulty products. I would be so grateful if yall have information on a good wholesaler, thanks

    How come you guys are asking for PM's to find out the supplier. Why not just post it?

    I'm considering ordering a lot of parts from ebay however It'd be great if I can order them all from one site. Please Post the site you guys have in mind!

    You buy off eBay and get ripped off, it's your own fault for being stupid.

    When buying off stores or suppliers, ALWAYS look for an msn address or some form of contact, and talk to them before making a purchase. Some questions you should ALWAYS ask should include:

    • Quality - Differentiate between TRUE OEM and Grade A (Aftermarket)
    Do your research and find out what parts are true oem (example: there are NO oem color conversion kits - if they tell you this, it's bull.. although SOME wholesalers put oem retina displays in.)
    • Ask about return policy
    • Make sure they are PayPal certified, or certified with their respective channels of payment
    • Ask about defective rates
    • Ask about dispatch times.

    The vast majority of these are really common sense.

    Also If something is really cheap and to good to be true, it IS!

    Keep your wits about out and stay smart with your purchasing - bad products will reflect back on you I repairing for other people!

    on ebay those are sold in wholesale lots of like 5 pieces for no more than $30 because the original screen assembly is fused like you said. That means that the good lcd under the glass will likely be damaged after you try and separate it. They are not meant to be separated and 9 out of 10 times you will not be successful.

    Sw-box clearly states on all their products that they are aftermarket. And they are b+ class to A- at the most. The thing is, if you are going non oem, you cant be mixing oem parts with after market copies. It just doesnt fit well and its a mess. If you do want to go non-oem after market, than be consistant. Buy all of the parts from the same generic dealer that you get some of them from, that is how you guaranty the best fit. Dont mix and match
