Repairing iPhone 3g
 
My friend has a iphone 3g, i just wanted to know how much it would cost to repair and is it possible to repair it myself
The mobile has just problem
1. The home button is cracked but it works
2. The back panel is pretty damages

Everything else is fine and works good.

(My friend asked a service centre and they quoted 2400rs, which i feel is overpriced, that why i planned to do it myself)

I have searched for parts, and i found back panel for 650 rs, and home button for 220 rs.

What you guys suggest, shall i go ahead and order these stuffs and repair it my self.

^^ Google around for guide to opening an iphone 3G. Make sure you have the tools needed. ( plastic extraction tool ). And then it can be done at home. But make sure that you open it in a clean enviornment, and use proper equipment ( like the soft cloth they use for cleaning the screen before applying guard, and some isopropyl for cleaning as well ).

There are various videos on youtube which detail the processes in detail.. you can do it yourself.

Thats not a issue, you can do yourself (a modder can.. lol) :)

Just somethings to keep in mind is :
Do all this away from dust.
Keep everything in mind how you are opening it.. Because you have to close it the same way :)
I guess that will hardly take 30 min.


go on.. Its a iPhone 3G dude :D
Try hands :p

If I were you I'd goto your local trusty mobile repair shop and give him the body/panel for doing the good thing. I'd be a little more careful in experimenting, especially since the phone isn't yours.

any link to buy spares for the mobile. Just now got the mobile in hand. Actually the digitizer , i mean the front glass also broken. I have met a service centre, the guy quoted this
1. for front panel (inr 1300)
2. for back panel (inr 2400)
i feel the price is just way too much.

Yes the price is too much.
if you think the owner of mobile is kind of those "Now you have to pay for this", then better get it done from some local shop :)

^^ purchased an iPad book cover and iPhone bumper. He claimed the bumper was original apple but turned high copy. He promptly refunded rs 500 and did not ask for the bumper also.
