Thread: Fixing a broken iPhone

    Default Fixing a broken iPhone
    Hey everyone, I'm going to buy a 1st generation iPhone for 50 dollars from a friend. It's condition however, is not very good:

    It has:

    -A cracked glass screen (LCD AND TOUCH PANEL IS NOT DAMAGED)
    -An extremely scratched and worn metal back
    -An extremely scratched antenna cover

    So I decided to buy all of the parts on ebay for cheap instead of paying 250 dollars to fix it. All of these items come with free tools aswell.

    Can I do it? If I replace all these damaged parts, theoretically would it be in "like-new" condition? I'm not selling it, I just really want a cheap iPhone.

    I'll unlock it for T-Mobile later.

    P.S. Such abuse to that iPhone makes me teary :'(

    It's always seemed like a difficult process to me but I don't see why things wouldn't work out if you do everything carefully.
