With the iPhone quickly becoming the most popular smart phone in the Unites States, many users are starting to encounter problems that go along with the combination of the normal wear and tear to which cell phones are exposed and the somewhat fragile makeup of touch screen smart phones like the iPhone. As a result, a burgeoning market of iPhone repair services has appeared, saving many people the pain and costs associated with replacing an iPhone when only a single part requires replacement.



One of the more commonly replaced parts is the iPhone 3G logic board. The iPhone 3G logic board is to the iPhone what a motherboard is to a personal computer; in fact, all Apple computers use the term logic board to describe their equivalent of a motherboard. Like a motherboard, a logic board essentially acts as the heart of an Apple computer or an iPhone, meaning that this is one of, if not the single most important part of an iPhone.



For many years Apple computers were designed to offer a logic board upgrade, which entailed a customer bringing their Mac into a dealer where their logic board would be replaced with a newer version, essentially transforming the computer into a rough equivalent of the newest Macs on the market. This point is significant because it demonstrates the fact that the replacement of an iPhone 3G logic board is a fairly common procedure and one that was intended as a possibility when Apple designed iPhones, Macs, and other electronic devices like iPods.



When an iPhone 3G logic board has been damaged, users will likely be unable to access any functioning screen on their iPhone. In many instances, a destroyed logic board will result in an iPhone displaying a screen that demonstrates that the battery is being charged, followed by a blank white screen, or the inability of users to turn their iPhone on at all. While many users assume that this is an indication of a lethal problem for their iPhone, prompting them to simply discard their phone, users should always consult an iPhone repair expert prior to throwing their phone away.



This is especially true if the iPhone in question is in good working condition. Many times, a single (albeit severe) drop can damage a logic board, meaning that a discarded iPhone may be in perfect condition, with the exception of the damaged logic board. By consulting the advice of an iPhone repair specialist, users with a damaged iPhone 3G logic board can save hundreds of dollars by having the logic board replaced rather than replacing the entire iPhone.



In fact, for technically savvy iPhone users, the replacement of an iPhone 3G logic board is a do-it-yourself procedure that deserves some consideration. With a number of used iPhone parts dealers available, and the wealth of information of the internet, many users will be able to purchase a replacement logic board and perform the installation themselves. At the end of the day, regardless of who performs the replacement, the fact that even a part as important as the logic board can be changed out means that iPhone users should always look into replacement parts before throwing their phones away, as it will save them money and cut down on waste, a win-win situation.
