Isn't that frustrating? It is difficult to find repair parts because electronic devices aren't covered by current Right to Repair legislation. Here's more info about the issue: http://ifixit.org/right

I have a Galaxy Note 5 N920G that has a water problem, everything just fine apart that it does not recognize the sim, so for calls and data is useless. I took it to Samsung , and they said that the motherboard or logic board does not work and need a replacement, but they want to charge me 300 usd that´s like a brand new note 5. Anyways browsing through eBay there are some boards but with different prefixes such as N920 A, V, T, N etc. I wonder if it will function with my cellphone? Will it be easy to replace the board?

Also im from Mexico if that helps.

I broke the signal cable port that it snaps to the motherboard. Is there a way to fix them or do I have to completely get a new one? Also If I get a new motherboard will I lose all of the stuff stored on my phone?
