    I have an iPhone 3G, and I wanted to know if any of you guys knew if a 2G backplate would fit on my 3G phone.

    Also, how difficult would it be to upgrade the storage capabilities of an iPhone? I've been googeling for an answer to both of those questions, and the closest I've come to an answer is that I would have to replace the entire logic board of an iPhone to get better storage.

    Have any of you guys tried this?

    I don't know about the back plate, but I can pretty much say there is little to no chance of upgrading the memory.

    I have not done this, but the reason they changed the backplate to plastic with the 3G model is because the aluminum blocks the 3G cell signal from the internal antenna. I do not know if it would fit, but if it did you can say goodbye to 3G service. ...so if you want to use it as an ipod touch, hmmm, maybe.
