    Hey guys, the significant other dropped her phone on the way to trade joes yesterday. She luckily only ended up cracking the back plate.

    Im looking on ebay, and while the prices are cheap (10 or so) there seems to be two variations of the replacement back plates. One has a metal panel inside while another may just be all plastic.

    Any advice on which one to get? I know it'll probably not be a 1000% authentic part but i rather get the closest one to the original as possible.

    You could just get apple to replace it for $29? Then you know it will be official.

    As long as it is the correct backplate for the specific make/model of the iPhone it really doesn't matter. You could even go nuts and get some crazy colored ones, even transparent(what I have) which is pretty cool.

    Good luck!
