My 8 yr old is using the old iPhone 3G for games and music and broke the 30-pin connector which smashed a few of the pins. It would charge (sometimes), but the final straw was when the phone became disabled when he forgot his passcode, which I could not get around with a broken connector.
Went well. I replaced the connector assembly and battery (while I was in there anyway). The guides were easy to follow and helped prevent me from making any big mistakes. Battery adhesive was tricky and the rubber microphone cover on the connector module was not straight, which made it a trick to get in, but I was pleased at how easy the process was. I'm emboldened to repair the next iPhone that breaks around here.
Just closely follow the guides and you won't have any problems, unless you have fat fingers which make it hard to get those tiny connectors reattached. My one piece of real advice is to go slow and easy when re-inserting the logic board. Make sure everything is out of the way that needs to be and don't force it. Slow and steady wins the race for this project.

Bought a used 3g iphone for my wife after hers was not repairable from being dropped. The mike didn't work on the used phone so no one could hear her talking, otherwise the phone worked great. Found IFIX on the web and shazam, I had a way of tinkering with a repair.
The repair was fairly simple. It was just a matter of taking a few screws loose, popping some parts out and reversing the order in which I started. Except for dropping ONE of the screws. Took awhile but I found it and everyone can hear us NOW!
Use the videos because they SHOW you how to do the repair or replacement of the parts. If you can't follow the guides or videos, then you should wrap some C-4 to your device and buy another one. If you're like me you have a tool for everything, but if not their tool kits are GREAT!
Thank you Ifix for saving the world.

My daughters dog stepped on her Phone with the charger was plugged in, ruining the Dock Connector. This accidental damage was not covered under our Apple Care Insurance Plan.
I found this web site while doing a search for a phone replacement. Being a DIY person, I researched your site & found the Dock Replacement instructions & figured I could do it. I have done my own computers but nothing on the scale this small. The instructions were very well layed out, step by step. Also the videos were alot of help. I ordered the Dock Connector which came in a couple of days. Again, I followed the instructions step by step to take the Dock out & then reversed the steps to put the phone back together. My daughter & I were very pleased with the out come, especially her, the phone works fine. This site is very good & now I know what repairs can by made at home if our warranty doesn't cover certain damage. I have recommended this site to friends & family who like to do there own repairs.
I had all the necessary tools needed. 00 screw drivers, Magnifying glasses, magnets, eye loops, toothpick etc. So if you don't have this stuff you will need to purshase them from a Hardware store. You need a good set of eyes, which I don't, so make sure you have magnifying glasses, I can't believe they can make screws that small!! The magnet was used so I didn't lose any screws, if you drop one on a rug forget about it! Sorry I didn't take any pictures. I wasn't expecting to write a review but I was so impressed by this web site & the info they made available, that I had to write something. Also, the shipping was very fast so her Phone was not down that long, only 3-4 days & that included the time to repair it. I can't say enough about the quaility of this web site. Thanks
PS I didn't even mention the $100.00 I saved by doing this myself. Apple wanted $100.00 for the updated Apple Care Plan to cover Accidental Damage & $50.00 to replace the phone. This repair cost me a total of $46.73
Thanks Very Much...John

Our five year old managed to break the dock connector on his hand me down iPhone 3G (antenna was busted, so it's a glorified iPod)
Now his dock works and his antenna is reconnectd!
Having the tools from a previous screen repair made the new repair easy as pie!
