Tricky Install, but Perfect Fit
on April 1, 2013
I purchased this for the iPhone 3GS. It is a perfect fit.
You must have kept the following parts from your old cable:
* The vibrate switch rocker assembly (but not the switch itself. It must be carefully separated from the metal bracket. This is the most troublesome part of the install, in my opinion. I accidentally broke this brittle bracket, and alignment of the switch is very tedious. My switch isn't as solid as it once was...so just be very careful, and you'll fare better than me)
* The volume switch metal backing plate
* The power/hold switch plastic backing plate
The cable has a special adhesive with peal-away stickers in multiple places, exactly where the old cable had it. You must carefully apply these to the original parts as listed above, and on the body of the phone. (The only exception is the missing adhesive on the flex cable surrounding the headphone jack...but it doesn't really need any)
As stated in other reviews, the volume and hold/power buttons definitely do have a more pronounced and definite "click" feeling. The buttons are more firm, but in a good/solid way. The headphone jack works perfectly, including stereo, microphone, and remote control features.
Just take your time. You'll need a decent micro-tool set to get the job done right.
