    Hey, I have a Verizon iPhone 5 a1429 but the rear housing is pretty damaged from use without a case. I am looking into buying a new housing but the ones on ebay, at least genuine ones, are a4128 and have battery and wifi antenna still attached. My question is, can I direct swap my logic board from a a1429 into that housing or is the different antenna for cell service somewhere in that housing where I will need to remove all the components and put mine in there? Thanks

    They're all the same. However, if the back housing only comes with battery and antenna you're going to have more to install from your old phone than just the logic board.
