However the Home button will not work until the front panel is back in position, because the electrical connection is done by a pair of touch contacts which only work when I've got the switch set to "off" and I think I've got everything in the right spot, put a few screws back in, and the switch sits flush against the side Add a comment Add a comment Add Comment 1024 Step 25 Edit Remove the following 3 screws: Two 1.5 mm Phillips #00 screws, one on either side of the dock connector. When reassembling the phone, keep this in mind. have a peek here

The strange thing is that on checking the networks I can see T-Mobile, but not 02, so implies something is working. So using a sharp cutter, I cut a bit hole.
The switch that you stuck to the bracket by removing the tape backing must also be in the muted position (pushed down toward the back of the case). External connectors have ESD protection circuits, but these will not help if you touch the internals! Is it the "Do not remove tape"? Hope this adds something to the discovery process !!
I'm now waiting for a new one... My phone was replaced on warranty in February so this must be the case in some newer 3G's.

oh also the vibrate button won't work any ideas there? It's still possible to get all the screws back in with the logic board above the clips (trust me), but it's a serious barnus because the SIM card holder won't fit It's cheap plastic. The most obvious clip is next to the camera, facing south (if the camera is in the NE corner).
I've overcome many issues with it, but it reached the point where I could not turn it off. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone+3GS+Mute+Button+Replacement/4488 You'd think Apple didn't want us to be able to replace the battery. this circuitry controls the presence of the sim card tray.

But phone works perfectly now with a new battery. Fine point tweezers would help here, to take it out and to put back in place during re-assembly. In the end, I was able to successfully replace the jack, but they weren't kidding when they said it was difficult.

The silent switch on the phone does not work. I've tried adaptors, three sets of headphones and am a little frustrated that even managing to replace the jack hasn't solved this. Cleaning everything by blowing clean, compressed air (from a aerosol can) in every nook and cranny and trying to get air in between the mother board and the RF sheilding from Ducktape fix nearly everything Andi - 05/18/2010 Reply Be very very careful with this step.
The tip of the switch fits into a hole in the rocker. Luckily, you can remove just the camera enclosure from the 3GS and transplant it to the 3G. My apps especially my pandora n other music would freeze on and off and I got extremely frustrated that I couldn't work out for coupe days. Android is a trademark of Google Inc..
I managed to get the ribbon cable back into the white connector and the phone seems to be working fine. Should of used a spudger. mattfife - 04/15/2011 Reply The power button is broken... onto the new headphone replacement and it's all almost ready to go ...apart from the power button!!
