Posting this on behalf of a friend

Now while I was looking out for a broken phone, (http://www.techenclave.com/market/wtb-broken-iphone-122833.html)

I came across this borked iphone that belongs to a colleague (4GB)..
Apparently his GSM antenna fizzled out which led to a phone that has weak reception (3-4 bars where I get 5, none where I get 2-3) (Only GSM antenna..., wifi and Bluetooth work perfect)
Now seems like this guy tried to fix it on his own and ended up screwing up his back cover too (he ended up bending one edge, but couldn't manage to open it)

If you are a hardcore DIY guy, you may even be able to fix it
DealExtreme: $3.05 Replacement Internal Antenna for Apple iPhone
Having said that, everything else is in perfect shape and it works well as an ipod Touch (and even a phone if one is willing to live with bad reception :lol:)

Now this kinda doesn't fit my need as I just need a battery (definitely) and a back cover (and this one doesnt fit that need)

It may be a good buy for someone looking for a cheap ipod touch or someone willing to repair it or is looking for parts for his iphone

Now plz don't crap the thread..

a) I am just quoting the price this guy asked for
b) I sold Rave's iPhone (long story) with a broken digitizer (touchscreen non functional) to a guy for $150 who was looking for replacement parts
c) Just the screen replacement costs over 8K

I will post detailed pics (with clear images of the backpanel bent) tonight

Arre Stalker, I have already attached a (rather blurred) pic..It's just that I need a better camera to get a macro shot of the bent panel (phone cam won't do) as it is far better to set the right expectation at the start than to put a blurry pic that hides the flaws

So the bent panel pics pending for tonight
