    My iphone volume button, sleep button and head phone jack stopped working. Then two days later; after leaving it over night to charge on a chinese made wall charger (just bought) it wouldn't turn on.

    Now, the problem could be connected to the first issue, or a second issue caused by a cheap charger (bad idea in retrospect).

    I was given a 8G iphone with a cracked screen. Swapping the screen seems straight forward enough, but my question is: Would it be possible to swap out the hard drive in the 8g for my old 16G~

    I thought there would be a ton of info on this but I haven't found it yet~

    Thanks for any thoughts~

    It is not possible. The memory chips ("hard drive") are soldered to the logic board and cannot be upgraded without switched out the whole logic board.

    No, you can't change the hard drive on an iPhone.

    It's a memory chip... not a hard drive :p

    And like mentioned, no you can't change it unless you know a thing or two about soldering and chip swapping.
