iPhone 4S screen assembly on an iPhone 4

Hi all,

Can an iPhone 4S screen assembly (digi+lcd, etc) be fitted to an iPhone 4 device?

Simply, I ordered the wrong screen assembly for a repair of an iPhone 4, the company I have ordered it from have said 'you can replace the frame, its very easy but the screens the same'.

I know the screen is similar but the fittings are not, is it possible to replace the frames/swap the frames and assemble it on the iPhone 4?

I'm not sure it is...

The "company" is correct, the screens are interchangable, the flex cables are identical. But the frame mounts for the screw positions are different. The frames can be transferred, but it is better to just get the screen with the correct frame at the outset.

thanks Brad for the correction, I think your right, to save myself work I'll just replace with the correct part.
