    replacing iphone 4 camera with 4s parts?
    Can I buy the 4s 8 meg camera and replace the 5 meg in my iphone 4?

    Assuming they are they same size I don't see why not? The resolution would be killer.

    Specs:
    Black MacBook 2.2GHz C2D, 4GB Ram - iMac G4 700MHz, 512MB Ram
    It would probably much easier just to buy an iPhone 4s than to risk destroying your current iPhone 4.

    Besides, with the 4s you get to have Siri!

    I have taken my 4 apart numerous times to fixed a cracked screen. I think I can handle the camera

    Specs:
    2011 MB Air Core i7 256GB, 2011 Mini with 8GB RAM, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, 2TB Time Capsule
    The logic board on the 4 and 4S are different. I haven't done it myself, but I would put a lot of money on "No." Though the two pieces from just a straight visual standpoint do look REALLY similar.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    The camera part is of a substantially different construction so I really don't think it will be practical (maybe even not possible) to accomplish this.
