Jammed Power Button + Broken Vibration

This is a very helpful site for the tear downs and other basic needs. But my iPhone (which has no warranty for the stupidity that is me) has a jammed power button, and my vibrator for rings is very "fart" noisy. I don't have the money to get a new phone or do a trade. So I was hoping someone could tell how to do it myself!

How do i fix a jammed power button and a bad vibrator?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Replacing the vibrator shouldn't be too difficult at all, you can follow this guide to open your phone, and we've got cheap iPhone 3G vibrators available here.

While you have your phone open, you should be able to easily reseat the power button as well. Hope this helps!

vpne, asking this in a new question will help to get other responses. :) In your new question, could you clarify what you mean? Does the charger connect completely, did you try using a different charger, etc?

3g is an easy device to fix! Because u can always take it appart. What i suggest though is that u go to ebay , because here they dont sell this thing, and look for iphone 3g housing assembly, it cost sabout $40 but u get practically a new phone! U just put ur old motherboard into the new housing and cover it with the screen... It will fix Im sure all problems jammed buttons vibrators, and even the battery..

Good luck!
