    Mobile Phones Broken/Spares & Repair Etc

    Hi,

    Due to the changing state of the world I am moving into the world of microsoldering, basic soldering skills are ok but taking up microsoldering, got a course for next year but looking for phones to practice on, doesn't matter if its samsung, apple, icloud locked etc, they won't ever be sold or used for anything other than being taken apart and soldering practice.

    Happy to pay postage of course.

    Thank you
    Jon

    I've got at least one dead handset (managed to break the digitizer connection while I was doing a screen replacement, and may have a few old/unused ones lying around. PM me your address and I'll sort out sending some stuff over

    Re: Mobile Phones Broken/Spares & Repair Etc

    Hey I have an S7 and old xperia c3 you can have, both with broken screens. PM me if you like. I enjoy Louis Rossman's channel, he makes soldering look easy. Sounds like an interesting course that'll come in handy for fixing your own items too.

    Re: Mobile Phones Broken/Spares & Repair Etc

    Thanks for the replies, will PM both of you.

    It really isn't as easy as it looks I have done it before very briefly and its ridiculously fiddly even with a microscope etc but like most things its all about the practice, a few months until course start should at least make me competent in soldering and use of equipment.

    I have a tin of old phones, battery, screens, some new bits and other random spares.
    Mainly Apple stuff if that's your thing..
