    Hello i would like to refurb my iPhone 2g but i have bought a back hosuing however it has no parts inside meaning i will need to transfer my old parts so i am wondering how i can do it?
    Any help would be great and if you can find a back housing with the internal parts i would rather buy that instead!
    Thanks again lewis

    Thanks very much but I know how to do that! It's the parts inside the back housing that I cannot remove, they are super glued to the iPhone back.
    I am thinking using a heat gun or solvent remover. Not sure
    Thanks again

    iPhone 2G was just a nickname for the original iPhone as EDGE is 2.75G.

    Out of curiosity, why would you want to do this?
