Can I swap iPad 2 Wi-Fi logic board for iPad 2 GSM
I have an iPad 2 AT&T 64 GB that got run over by a car. The case is bent, the digitizer is smashed, half the screen works. But, the rest seems to function as it should. My wife has an iPad 2 Wi-Fi 16 GB and she is constantly running out of storage space. So, I thought I would take the 64 GB logic board out of the smashed iPad and put it in the good one to give her 4x the storage (I had recently performed a successful digitizer replacement on an iPad and felt comfortable with the procedure). I made the logic board swap and it powered up fine, but I could not turn on Wi-Fi. The on/off switch for Wi-Fi in settings was grayed out. I reset network settings, but no luck. So, then I reset the whole iPad back to factory settings. The "welcome" screen came up and prompted me to plug it into iTunes. I did so and after a few minutes, iTunes told me that it "...could not activate the iPad at this time. Try again later or contact Apple Support."
Any ideas on what might make this work? I can open it back up and put the 16GB logic board back in. But, I thought I'd search for other options before I threw in the towel.
Thanks - Matt
Is this a good question?
