    I got the one with the buttons already installed.
    No, iPhone 3G & 3GS screens are not transferable.

    You risk damaging the motherboard as they have different connections with different power usage.

    I agree with iamkadaj, Won't work, digitizers and LCD of 3g and 3gs are not interchangable. Also when you put the 3gs back together make certain that the 3gs iPhone is powered off, or you risk frying the 3gs LCD or 3gs logic board LCD controllers. You can check if the opened up iPhone is off by flipping the vibrate switch, to make sure it is really off. If the iPhone vibrates it is on, which is bad.

    Good luck,

    Brad

    Excellent tip.

    An easy, yet horrible mistake!
