After a heavy fall on its head my iPhone 4's ringer and vibrate ceased working. I had this repaired but the repair only lasted a month before the problem returned. I ordered what I thought would be the parts I needed would be from iFixit and had a go myself.
It was totally nerve racking as I didn't have much small electronics experience but the guides were clear - some sections could have had more / clearer photos. But I successfully replaced the vibrate motor and ringer switch. I should have replaced the headphone, ringer, volume control connector strip I think though because the problem wasn't solved when I put it all back together.
It took me about 3 hours to do. Lost a screw too. Get that magnetic mat! In the end I jailbroke the phone and installed a software ringer switch which turned on the audio so now I can hear the phone ring. But the vibrate motor is still not doing anything. Might have another go at some point.
Easier than expected, guide perfect!
It was cheaper than buying a new IPhone. My cat smashed the back glass, the battery was getting worse and the ring/vibrate switch no longer worked.
No problems at all!Took less than 45 min. to replace ! Now as good as new for a fraction of the price. Thank you so much!!!
Don't procrastinate. Just DO IT !!!
If I did the job again I would buy the magnetic mat to keep track of those tiny screws!
