    Default Cheapest place to buy iPhone 4 Conversion kit?
    Looking for the cheapest, reliable + reputable seller for a iPhone conversion kit. any color besides black.

    I cracked my screen, and the replacement LCD is $80.. so why not spend a couple of extra bucks and just convert it to white!

    any sites you guys recommend that sell it for a good price? if it's good quality i'd be interested in purchasing more than one kit.

    someone on the forums recommended White iPhone 4 Conversion Kit Full Housing - iPatchUp.com

    is there anything cheaper? thanks.

    for the full conversion kit, iPatchUp is probably the cheapest. they include the dock and audio jack. other places charge like $175 without those parts. fast shipping as well.

    they may be the cheapest but you get what you pay for.. Some have lower quality parts than others.. In the description on their website it even says "All conversion kits are subject to some defects, but we assure you we inspect all kits for MAJOR defects. We ship the highest quality OEM parts, and no aftermarket parts."

    Idk if I am willing to spend $150 to make my iphone have a defect.. when Currently its defect free.

    sweden is quite far. i'd give it a week or two before it gets delivered. my parts got delivered in about 3-4 days.

    Have you ever ordered from slickgate?? What's the quality like for the parts? How long does it take to receive the parts once you purchase them?

    Does anyone know if the front (dig, LCD, glass) and back are equally compatible between CDMA and gsm iphone 4s? One site sells it for $100+ says compatible others say no. I was under the impression the the middle part is different (button location and antenna location) but would the rest be the same? I am only changing front and back.

    Is it the outer "glass" or just the supporting frame?

    I found a comparison that said just the supporting frame has different mounts, and I found a tutorial on how to separate them. At this point I just need to find a site that sells the frame only. Anyone know of any?

    can you post the link to that tutorial? I think muchbuy sell the bare supporting frame.

    its the supporting frame. are you looking for GSM or CDMA supporting frame? I have a white GSM supporting frame laying around you could have if you need it.

    Default Conversion Kits
    A friend of mine turned me on to this place. Has anyone heard of iKustomize.com? He said they were still kind of on the down low (really busy but a website coming soon)- which worried me at first but after seeing my friend's phone I had to give them a shot. Hands down, they sell AWESOME colors, stuff I haven't seen anywhere else. Of course I am not an expert (I'm a Newbie ) that is why I'm asking you guys. I've used them twice now and both times the outcome was FANTASTIC!! Apparently you can purchase kits or have them install it if you are like me and pretty intimidated by the project I was initially worried about shipping my phone to them but the guy was cool and kept me updated with pictures and tracking info when it was finished. The phone is Freakin' SWEET, and everyone who sees it freaks out!! From what I am reading on here, they seem about the same price (which is good, glad I didn't get ripped off) or maybe slightly higher but for someone like me it was totally worth it. I just got back my wife's phone (2nd phone I've had them do) and it too looks GREAT! I will try to post pictures if I can figure it out. Again, sorry I'm a Newbie

    My phone:




    Here is my wife's:
