Question about Apple iPhone 3G

1 Answer

I want to put a 3g LCD and glass, digitizer on a 3gs. The problem so far is the connection on the #1 and #2 leads are slightly different in size. I considered desoldering them and matching to fit. Is this possible by any means? Thanks

I I am sorry to tell you but you cannot do this, this is because the software used to drive them is totally different,and even if you did successful get it to mate up with the motherboard, it still won't work, as the internal Apple software simply will NOT recognize and work with it.
They do it this way so that if you want the features of that particular digitizer ya gotta get the 3g..... not 3gs and vice versa...
Maybe in the future someone maybe able to hack the OS to enable all sorts of things to work, but ATM it's a no-go.

Just how can you the distinction between an iphone 3g and an iphone 3gs?


Yes there's a distinction between the iPhone 3G screen/digitizer and the iPhone 3Gs screen/digitizer. The glass is exactly the same however the cable for the digitizer relationship is not. You can inform the once the iPhone is opened by you that the link is various. The unlock iphone 3gs connection has a broader bill in the center and can not match. If someone is wanted by you to emerge to your house or company and replace

My iphone was broken the glass panel..is it repairable or not? If,how much will it cost the glass panel?


Yes, the glass panel can be replaced on all iPhone models. Apple charges $199 to complete this service. However, if you have an iPhone 2g/3g/3gs the broken panel can be replaced relatively easily from home for around $20. If you have an iPhone 4, I would recommend having apple replace the glass as the glass is now attached to the LCD (making self repair much more difficult and cost prohibitive).

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

How to know which model of iPhone


The original iPhone (2G) has an aluminum back. The 3G and the 3GS have identical cases with beveled edges and a plastic back, but you can look for the compass app. If the phone has the compass app, then it is the 3GS. The iPhone 4 looks different. It is more square on the sides. The front and back are glass with aluminum sides.

I have an 8gb Iphone that has a problem on the screen , it's like when you press on an ara of the screen does not work, some friends that has a dead line, it's not like you see a line on it, it's like the...


Okay try this, ive been doing this and making a TON of money on it recently... go you youtube and search for iPhone 3g (or whatever kind you have, 3g,3gs,2g) digitizer replacement.

you can go to ebay and search for iphone 3g digitizer and it will come up with tons of links to buy them, order one, its about $20 and then put it on like said in the youtube vidoes... i dont suggest using Direct Fix's or PDAParts.com's video...

Basic instructions,
take out two screws on bottom of phone,
take a suction cup the the glass of the phone and pull up,
once inside look for where the cables connect and disconnect,
unscrew 6 screws and CAREFULLY pull off the LCD,
go ahead an rip off all the glass from the plastic frame,
replace with new digitizer (glass),
and put LCD back on,
re-assemble and put screws back in the bottom (dont forget to plug cables in),
power up iPhone,
you good! (:

this will only work with iPhone 3g/3gs

original iphones your kind of just stuck with a paper-weight

I put a screen and glass on my iphone but it doesnt seem to be getting power to it. could it be a grounding problem. i dont have the screws yet.


Hello,
I would recommend trying it out when you have all the necessary tools needed to complete the job. Until then, you leave your equipment open to ESD (electro-static discharge or static electricity) which seems harmless to humans but in actuality can virtually fry your sensitive internal components.
You might also have a faulty LCD/Digitizer/Glass combo. If this is a 2g model, then any of those components that need replacing require the entire set of 3 to be replaced to correct the issue (and not open up new ones).
On eBay many dealers sell the individual parts, but this is wrong and can further damage your iPhone down the line. The LCD/Digitizer/Glass combo is fused together from factory and any attempt to separate the combo typically ends in damaging one or more of the other components. Only the 3G (and I believe 3GS) allow for the glass to be a separate piece as the LCD/Digitizer.
If you own a 2G and bought one of these black-market individual pieces, I'd recommend you contact the seller and get a refund. They usually for about $40-80 and break more than they fix (if they work at all).
You are better off spending your money at Apple, as they will charge a $199 to fix (ie, replace your broken iPhone with a brand new model) and you'll get a 1-yr warranty out of it (along with a brand new iPhone) and no contract extensions for out of warranty replacements.

After changing digitizer my 3gs is not calibrated. When I want to press a number for example, it takes the one next to it. Any advice?


the screen/digitizer you got may be for a 3G rather than 3GS compare the connector with that of your old one to see. the 3GS has a black plastic middle, the 3G one has more metal pins.
