Hey, a couple weeks ago I was cutting the grass and long story short my IPhone got chewed by the mower. The housing is pretty ripped up and screen is ripped off (pretty much junk) but the other day I plugged it into my car and it surprisingly still works, still plays music and charges. Is it possible to get a parts phone and swap out parts from my phone to the other one and it would work?
Thanks image.jpg image.jpg

Hi there, Parts for these phones are plentiful and cheap. Seeing the phone still works it sounds like the mainboard is still ok, which should make it a fixable proposition. Heaps of parts on EBay, and there are videos on youtube about pulling them apart. One word of warning though, just about every screw inside these things are different sizes, get an internal picture of one and use it to position the removed screws on whilst working on it.


I put a new on off swicth in mine a while back and found a video on youtube called "official guide to iphone 5" or something similar, great video.


Good luck 


Edit, found the link to the video.
