    Well if you get all the parts and know what the hell you are doing, anything is possible. Go for it, no guts no glory. Let us know how you make out. :)

    I ordered all the parts. I just have to wait until I have everything.
    That's right: no guts no glory.
    I will keep you posted.

    Funny how the front is more than the logic board. What would it cost to build an iPhone 4, 4S and even 5?

    The front could be a little bit cheaper! But i know eforchina.
    To build an iPhone 4, 4S or a 5 is lot more!! The logic boards are around $250-400! and the glass panels are expensive.

    The 5 logic board is $449 on that parts site. Screw that. And I assume these logic boards all have proper imei numbers associated with them?

    It's possible but I'm building an iPhone 5 from an destroyed iPhone from AT&T and it's only costing me 40 dollars I think you should buy a broken iPhone 5 and just get replacement parts for it and you can buy the iPhone 3G on amazon new for 60 dollars
