How can I relate a serial number of a motherboard to an iPhone?

I had problem with water damage with my iPhone.

I sent it to technical support non official.

The technician had a good time with my iPhone.

When it came back the motherboard was all scratched over plates..

Can he switched my motherboard?

Is there any serial number on the motherboard that I can relate to my iPhone?

It is impossible to work on a water damaged phone without leaving some traces behind. You have to heat the shields to several hundred degrees in order to remove them. The black stickers on them will shrivel and crack and are easily scratched.

Removing and replacing IC's requires flux and it tends to get all over the board. A good micro-solderer has all the right tools to do this quickly and effectively. They will also have a high quality ultrasonic cleaner to clean the board afterwards.

The videos we see online are just the successes...very rarely will we see the no-fix failures.

I can't speak to the quality of the repair shop you worked with but expecting a pristine logic board back is a little unrealistic, not to mention that water damaged devices are the most difficult to repair. Talk to the shop and have them explain what they did. Visit their workbench or watch videos yourself to see what's involved.

If you can turn the phone on you can check the IMEI and serial number on the phone matches the ones printed on the back..

I can't turn on the phone.

During the repair, the tech said that he has cleaned and dryed the phone, and the phone become to start andloop system, and he need iCloud to restore system.

After some days, he call me that it can't be repaired.
