Il Mio Problema

my iPhone 3s stopped charging , I did get it to charge a little on a fluke , but my desk top did not recognize it to retrieve some old pic's and videos. I tried the apple store first , with no luck ( phone was to old ) then I said to myself i need to some how find the old parts and fix it my self , the rest is history ... stumbled on IFIXIT (almost paid twice as much at another repair site )

La Mia Riparazione

I figured because it wasn't charging right , the charging port was the way to go , your website was really easy to follow , the part I needed was a Dock connector and a couple of basic tools , and one call for encouragement I was on my way ....

Il Mio Consiglio

what a cool experience , I thought it was gonna be hard , it was really kind of fun ,your step by step instruction pic's and videos ,made it hard to go wrong ... after all was said and done it works perfect , and retrieved all my old videos pic's etc. how cool is that ??? if ya want to call this advice ... how I prepared my work area ,I tapped a large paper towel on my desk and then , put a piece of duct tape ,sticky side up tapping it down securely and drew a ruff out line of the phone , so I could put all the tiny screws where they they wouldn't get mixed up... it worked great ... it took me 1 hour and 10 min's .I guess that's pretty good for a first time phone fixer ... the end result priceless ........
