    If iFixit doesn't have it, then it's not going to be easy to find:

    http://www.ifixit.com/iPhone-Parts/iPhone-4

    And they don't.

    This is probably because the logic board is pretty much the phone itself. It's where the IMEI and serial numbers are baked into the phone, and they have to be unique. And with the board, you're buying the RAM, NAND Flash storage, the CPU/GPUs, baseband transceivers... all the expensive stuff. Get a new logic board and you're basically buying a new iPhone.

    The only place likely to help you is an Apple Store. Out of warranty iPhone 4 repairs cost $149. Which, if you could find someone who could sell you a logic board, will likely charge you that much anyway, and outside of the Apple Store you'd still have to install it yourself.

    Agree with the above.

    Logic board is pretty much the entire phone, I would take it to Apple and get the replacement from them

    It'll cost you more to repair it than just getting it replaced.

    I fix iPhones, did you spill water on your phone? I just had a lady last week who soaked her phone in soda. After 2 hours of cleaning and drying I was able to revive it. She still needs a LCD and a new battery though.

    Yea. I just bought a new iPhone when my board got screwed. Not worth even bothering.

    Check to see if there is an iHospital in your area. They get excellent reviews here in Tampa, FL.
