Speaker on my I phone was defective
The repair went great. I have a friend that repairs cell phones, so I had him make the repairs for me.
No advice since I did not do the repair.
The 30-pin dock connector: Steve Jobs' brainchild in his vision for a universal interface. Everything from bite-sized iPod Nanos to less digestible iPads use this dock connector, and at one point, so did your iPhone 3GS. But now your wall charger, iHome, and car stereo are merely reminders of a better time—a time when plugging in your iPhone meant gazing fondly at a battery with a lightning bolt in it. Today, however the lightning bolt is gone and a vexing message stands in its place.
Bring back the good times with this replacement. We have the iPhone 3GS dock connector in black or white, so you can match your current color scheme or go avant-garde if you like.

The repair was clearly . . .
Dock connector contacts had broken off (kid jammed phone into his pocket too many times).
repair was easy peasy- just like the tutorial. I hit a snag w/ the tiny screws on the outside of the phone when I stripped one and had to use ifixit's how to get out a stripped screw tutorial. After that it w . . .
My fiance and I have been getting the most out of our Iphone 3GS's. His recently stopped charging due to his habit of using it to play music in our tiny steamy bathroom while he's in the shower. The guys at the Apple Store told us for the price it would take to fix it, we may as well get a new phone . . .
