@omar12708 the logic board is for all intent and purposes the phone. Replacing that board is like a different phone. Not sure what you are planning on, so give us a bit of a hint of what you are up to.

Well I lost all of my iCloud password and I have no access to my gmail so I can re get it back and the closets phone shop from here is 2 hours away. So if I restore it would basically be a new phone again I will have to put all my information back?


Note that restoring it will not remove any apple ID activation lock on the iPhone.


So iCloud would stay on it?


Yes, if it has been setup to have an activation lock on it.

@omar12708 @benjamen50 is correct. IF the replacement logic board has a lock on it you cannot use it. So if you do buy a replacement you have to make sure that it is not locked. If it is not, then you must transfer all your information to your "new" phone. All your data on the "old" phone will be lost since it is stored on the logic board.
