iPhone 3G Vibrate/Ring Switch

by tcurle

My Problem

The mute switch had snapped off and no longer worked.

My Fix

The repair was extremely straight forward. The pictures and instructions on ifixit were very helpful. I'd never done anything like this so I took my time and it still only took me about half an hour.

My Advice

When putting the little screws back in it helps if you dip the tip of the screwdriver in silicone to help hold the screws in place until the thread starts.
