    Hi Guys!

    Just wanted to start a Topic for people to share information regarding iPhone part/accessories wholesalers/distributors.

    The purpose being to share, review and discuss the best parts available from the beat suppliers, we can use the information with the aim of supplying people with the best possible parts for the cheapest possible price, making iPhone repairs and DIY jobs easy and accessible for all!

    This Topic is open to Retailers, Repair Techs, Modders, eBay sellers or the average Joe at home with a broken iPhone!

    98% of the parts you'll buy if not from the States, will be from China! are you getting good deals on your eBay sellers? I know a fantastic Chinese company I'll gladly put you in touch with!

    I have a request:

    Anyone know a reliable source for 3g and 3gs front glass & digitizer with the 3 small round sensor circles at the top of glass which are dark blue in color. Original real Apple screens have dark blue sensor circles. Aftermarket seem to be purple or others light blue.

    Where can I find the real screens?

    Thanks,

    Brad

    How come you guys are asking for PM's to find out the supplier. Why not just post it?

    I'm considering ordering a lot of parts from ebay however It'd be great if I can order them all from one site. Please Post the site you guys have in mind!

    You buy off eBay and get ripped off, it's your own fault for being stupid.

    When buying off stores or suppliers, ALWAYS look for an msn address or some form of contact, and talk to them before making a purchase. Some questions you should ALWAYS ask should include:

    • Quality - Differentiate between TRUE OEM and Grade A (Aftermarket)
    Do your research and find out what parts are true oem (example: there are NO oem color conversion kits - if they tell you this, it's bull.. although SOME wholesalers put oem retina displays in.)
    • Ask about return policy
    • Make sure they are PayPal certified, or certified with their respective channels of payment
    • Ask about defective rates
    • Ask about dispatch times.

    The vast majority of these are really common sense.

    Also If something is really cheap and to good to be true, it IS!

    Keep your wits about out and stay smart with your purchasing - bad products will reflect back on you I repairing for other people!

    on ebay those are sold in wholesale lots of like 5 pieces for no more than $30 because the original screen assembly is fused like you said. That means that the good lcd under the glass will likely be damaged after you try and separate it. They are not meant to be separated and 9 out of 10 times you will not be successful.

    Sw-box clearly states on all their products that they are aftermarket. And they are b+ class to A- at the most. The thing is, if you are going non oem, you cant be mixing oem parts with after market copies. It just doesnt fit well and its a mess. If you do want to go non-oem after market, than be consistant. Buy all of the parts from the same generic dealer that you get some of them from, that is how you guaranty the best fit. Dont mix and match
