Hi @anas9 ,

Not sure if this is for your model but it may be the vibrator motor

yes that's it, thanks a lot. glad to see it's available on ebay :)


Hi @anas9 ,

You may have to search for other suppliers if you were thinking about using the one in the link.

Just noticed that it states further down the page in the product description that the SD reader is not included in the flex cable, only the SIM reader and the vibrator motor.
