    Hi all
    my name is Bob and i live in north Sweden
    autumn is approaching and i was thinking to buy an iphone i pieces and try to repair it as a cold autumn hobby..
    bought an iphone 4 but the seller dont know if its a 4 or 4 s
    i also notices that there is 3 different types, 4 4 g and 4 s
    can anyone tell me the difference? and how i can see that?

    the one i bought consist basically of the metall chassie and the cameras
    no mother circuit or front and back

    since i only have the frame, if it is a 4 can i uppgrade to a 4 s instead?

    ill also like to get a manual or drawing/parts list so i can see exactly what parts i ned to get
    where can i get that?

    thanks for all your help now and in the future.. i think i will be here for a while now.. :-)

    Go to Ifixit.com
    Look at the repair guides and see what device u have
    If it has a sim slot it is a gsm iPhone 4 or a 4S

    You should be able to tell by the pics of the logic board and the antennas

    No you can not upgrade a 4 to a 4s it is based off the logic board and parts are not changeable like a 4s camera won't work on a 4 logic board

    You should be able to tell without even opening the iPhone. There is a model # on the back plate:

    GSM i4 = A1332
    CDMA i4 = A1349
    i4S = A1387
