    Sorry if this has been asked before...........

    Does anyone know where i can get a new volume button for the 3gs??? Mine has seemed to have fallen off :S and I don't hold much hope in finding it.

    UK preferably.

    Thanks

    I've used http://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/index.php for parts for an old 2G 4GB that I'm "restoring", they've got both the the 3GS headphone jack assembly which the volume buttons are attached to and an individual 3GS button set, they're not as cheap as some but the majority of the parts they sell are genuine (apart from the obvious!) and they offer a pretty good service, they also do repairs if you're not confident in replacing the buttons yourself.

    Let us know how you get on ;)

    You can buy them for a buck or a couple of bucks on eBay. Then just glue it on (using soft glue for glueing paper, .. not superglue... yeah that will permanently glue it stiffly in place... not that I'm speaking from personal experience or anything)
