What exactly does your iPhone communication board do, and what are your options if it stops working properly?
The iPhone communication board is as important to the use of the iPhone as it is complex. It is difficult to replace because it has several parts to it. Basically, the board controls the wireless Internet connection as well as the actually ‘phone’ part of the iPhone. The bottom line is, it is a central part of the phone and therefore considered a very difficult replacement job. All the online forums will tell you the same thing. If you think you may have a problem with your phone’s communication board, follow these steps.
First, you must diagnose the problem, which can likely be done on your own with the help of an online forum or quick Internet search. You are probably not yet certain that the problem originates with the board. In fact, you may not have any clue whatsoever. Online forums are useful in giving regular people a quick education on many topics, including the replacement of an iPhone communication board. Reading the suggestions, tips, and conclusions made by dozens of other people in your shoes will help you diagnose the problem and start to tackle it. If you determine, with the help of the Internet search or online forums, that your problem has to do with the communication board, then you have a choice to make.
If you are brave enough to tackle the job yourself then you will need to educate yourself about the steps necessary. Do another quick Internet search and find a do-it-yourself video that can explain to you how to replace the iPhone communication board. At the same time, go ahead and conduct an Internet search for replacement boards that you can find from sellers online. It will likely save you quite a bit of money to find the board online and replace it yourself, but the job is difficult so be forewarned.
If you decide to pass on the replacement job, you are certainly not alone. Many people choose to let an expert work on iPhone communication board issues. You may find out that it is more cost effective to buy a new iPhone than let a professional charge you for time and labor. If the phone is still in warranty, the cell phone will perhaps be replaced but you must talk directly with the dealer.
Know also that there are risks when replacing your iPhone communication board. It is actually considered one of the most difficult replacement jobs with an iPhone and comes with quite a few individual steps. Merely watching a video online and educating yourself on how to remove the board will not necessarily get the job done. You must remove and replace it with great care, gentleness, and patience. If you spend any time reviewing the forums online, you will find that sometimes do-it-yourself repairs jobs don’t end up fixing the problem. While it is more likely that you will successfully replace the broken iPhone part such as the communication board, it is not a guarantee.
