Do you mean locked as in password locked? Anyways, which iPhone is it? If they're the same phones, yes it's possible. The iphone 4s and up are all the same designs. Just swap the motherboard, unless something else is damaged.


locked by AT&T.

i know the frame is used as an antena for the phone.

and its iphone 5 .

If you mean the housing, then yes, you can change that, it will only affect the signal etc. if it is a poor quality replacement. :-)
