    Did any of you change the headphone jack and dock connector? I'm having a hell of a time finding a quality white headphone jack and white dock connector. First it was the dock connector. Was missing a tiny clip that the OEM black one had. I think it was a manufacturing issue but I could also be mistaken.

    Here's my thread in regards to the dock connector:

    Second, I put the white headphone jack in. Looks awesome, but about 10 or 15 switches later of the vibrate toggle switch, it broke loose. Now the toggle switch isn't a "clicky" feeling anymore, and it doesn't turn the vibrate on/off anymore.

    And here's the thread about the vibrate toggle switch issue:

    My question is, whoever's done the headphone jack/dock connector swap, have you had any issues and how long have you had the swap for? Lastly where did you get your parts? I know they aren't OEM, and I think I'm having terrible luck with getting any sort of 'quality' white headphone jack or dock.

    I'm really thinking of just keeping the black dock in and the black headphone jack, but part of me wants to successfully get this thing converted. It's going to bug me that it's not all white and I really want to get this figured out.

    I also believe that it's poorly manufactured parts...

    As someone who has converted to white without the Dock and Headphone jack I can tell you this. You don't even notice.

    Its a tiny little detail. The Headphone jack is near impossible to tell at all. Personally for the amount of work and potential damage to swap them I don't feel I missed anything in not converting.

    Yeah I hear ya. That's about what I'm starting to think right now... It'd be really nice to have it done. It's something I've really wanted, but I don't' want to keep having to fix the crap.

    the conversion process seems like a bit of a gamble when it comes to various aspects of integrity on the phone
