    I just recently did a complete overhaul on my iPhone 3G, my battery died, so while i was in there i replaced everything. Is it possible to replace my 3G motherboard with a 3GS? Or will the internal terminals/ ribbons not match up?

    No, it wont work.
    The parts wont match or work between a 3G and a 3GS.
    Just by a 3GS or an iphone 4. Dont spend any money or waste your time on trying to frankenstein an iphone 3G

    Impossible, there are small little crevices and such within the phone that won't match up with the newer parts. It's just cheaper to buy a new 3GS.
