I have a motherboard from a 32gb 3GS iPhone which still has the $100 autofocus camera attached.

This phone still has 6 months of applecare left!

If you have a 3GS 16gb, drop this in for a direct upgrade to a 32gb and increase your phone's value by $200-300. Sell your 16GB mobo on ebay for $350-450 and still have a 32gb. :)

For $62 you can build a 3GS phone except for the LCD. That's the $100 part. Then add this MOBO.

Have a water damaged 3GS? This is your fix! Drop it in and be back in business with the biggest iPhone of them all.

I have personally used this Mobo for a week solid to test it, it's mint with NO water damage, the sensors are in perfect shape.

If you have a damaged phone I will install the mobo for you at your request. I would actually prefer to do it anyway, these are sensitive and I'm know in the iPhone world as the guru. CLICK ME (http://modmyi.com/forums/iphone-b-s-t/377891-will-do-moose-stuff-money.html)

Screen got destroyed on this phone and phone got replaced, nice $700.00 motherboard and autofocus camera here for the taking.

What I'd like:

~ A nice set of amps from the old school (pre 2000)
~ Anything Mcintosh
~ Focal components, no cheaper ones.
~ a really nice Nav headunit (I have an Eclipse avn5500 right now, not nice enough).
~ Mods for my IS300
~ Cash, green, money, $450-ish. That's the cash discount.

There's a few idea's to get you going. Think of something else and let me know.

It will FIT, but the connections are different for the LCD and the bottom flex cable connector is different as well. Apple made sure you weren't gonna pull that trick easily. You'd need a complete 3GS LCD assembly and flex cable for the lower dock. Given the prices of the 32gb 3GS it's still cheaper by a good bit, but... eh. I'm biased because I already have my 32gb 3gs so I'm not interested in building another one personally. Hence the sale.

So the 3g is pretty useless building a 3gs when you consider how cheap new parts are. The Mobo is the $700 part. http://s2.guide-images.ifixit.com/igi/EhiS4ErYnTLuW3N1.large

$176 or less (bargain shop) will build a 3gs phone, then drop the mobo in. I know the $25 case can be had for $15 shipped I've seen it. You're only at $48 before the LCD. $38 if you find the $15 case I have seen. That way everything is brand new.
