    Default Motherboard swap

    Real quick...

    I have a family member's 4s that is badly damaged. Both back and front glass is obliterated and the volume buttons are loose and barely functioning. (She has 3 kids under 8 that fight over use of the phone. Why she lets them play with it I'll never know)...

    If I get a Bad ESN 4s cheap from eBay and swap out the motherboards and SIM cards, same carrier, will there be any problems?

    TIA
    No one cares what phones/computers/tablets you are using, or in which order you got them.... so stop listing.
