Symptoms & Preventative Measures

When a Apple Computer Company*** iPhone 3GS needs a Back Replacement

Cracked, Broken & Busted Back Plastic

Back casing is damaged due to cracks, missing pieces and/or deep scratches. Common cracks occur vertically from the charging point, above the power button, and on corners.

  • Cracks above Charging Port - Cracks above the charging port are typically from pressure or impact damage; this area cracks more easily due to the lack of strength reinforcement. Upon replacement, you may request that we add additional reinforcement to the back to help prevent this kind of crack from occuring, however, it won't garauntee that you wouldn't be able to crack it.
  • Missing Pieces or Cracks above Power Buttons - Cracks that occur between the iPhone's power button and chrome bezel usually occur from direct impact to that corner of the casing or to the actual button itself. The support that holds the button attaches to the inside of the chrome bezel, so if there is separation of the backing and the bezel, this crack occurs usually pretty fast. Unfortunately, we cannot just replace that bit of plastic, but have to do an entire back replacement. This kind of break can (but not always) damage the iPhone 3G flex cable that the power button uses. For a combo option including the Headphone Flex Jack, check out the iPhone 3G Back Replacement.

Preventative measures include a hard case, such as an otter box or other hard plastic case with padding inside.

Are the 3G & 3GS backs the same?

Yes and No. They are the same dimensions, but physically the only difference is the print on the back cover. If the iPhone text is gray, it's a 3G. If the iPhone is silver and shiny like the Apple Logo, then it is a 3GS. Also, you will find a model number than can be related to either iPhone in the text. Other subtle differences include the Gigabytes indicated (Gb), as the 3G is only in 8 & 16Gb, and the 3GS is in 16 & 32Gb. For complete backs, the battery and Headphone Flex are different.
