    Hey all,

    I'd like to give a second life to my iphone 3GS by getting a new battery and rear case. However, I can't find a good replacement rear case as most of them look like cheap Asian ripoffs.

    Do you know a website on which I could get an official iphone 3GS rear case, or at least a very good quality one ?

    Thanks for the help :)

    The back of the iPhone 3G/3GS is crazy hard to replace.

    You could try to get a new back for ~$25 and a new battery for ~$25, or you could have Apple swap out your 3GS with a refurb that has a new battery for ~$79.

    Have you tried looking into iFixit? They have genuine Apple replacement parts, if they don't, they will outright tell you.

    A couple of thoughts:

    First, perhaps a water damaged yet mint 3GS and pirate those part(s) you need. They go cheap on eBay.
    Second, Sell your 3GS and use the proceeds to partially purchase a mint, near new 3GS on eBay.
