Hello,

You can absolutely replace the motherboard in your phone but it is only worth it if all the other components are functioning properly.

You will pretty much need to tear the phone down to get the motherboard out but it can easily be done by a professional, and replaced by a professional.

Your phone is not a total loss.

The motherboard *IS* the phone. If you need a new motherboard, you need a new phone.

What exactly is the motherboard problem? One of the myths out there is that motherboard problem = certain doom. That is not always the case.

PS: If you've bought this phone on eBay and it is Find my iPhone/iCloud locked to someone's Apple ID that is not you, then it really is a cute paperweight.

First, the motherboard/logic board contains all the information. Secondly, you can switch the motherboard/logic board if it's dead for a working one. If you're still under warranty and haven't repaired/opened the iPhone just take it to apple and they should replace it. I do also think the touch id/home button is unique to the logic board (not sure). If you do switch out the logic board make sure to log on to icloud.com, sign in and erase all data from the logic board you took out so your stuff won't be saved on it. Hope this helps.
