Hello
Today I accidentally dropped my iphone. The screen has a huge crack on it and it really looks awful but it works perfectly fine.
However, my mom has another iphone that she dropped to the toilet so it stopped working but the screen is not damaged.

Is there a way I can switch the screen from one iphone to the other?
Or how can I repair the screen?


Thank you
QUOTE Thanks

Thank you
(FYI if you are referring to a 2G iPhone don't waste your time)


You can switch the display assemblies out. (as long as they are both the same generation iPhone) I would try that first.

If that does not work then you will need to replace the Glass/Digitizer.
Which is fairly easy to do. Check iFixit.com they have the best iPhone repair/teardown guides.

If you need more help let us know I will be glad to help.
