    I have an iPhone 6s Plus it has a bad IMEI so i have planned to replace the motherboard, but i have heard rumors saying that Touch ID doesn't work after replacing the motherboard.

    Thank You!

    I wouldn’t recommend servicing or replacing certain parts of an Apple product without sending it to Apple.

    A device with a bad IMEI typically means the device was stolen. It is my understanding that the TouchID mechanism is paired to the every device’s chipset and therefore attempts to switch out this or that will cause TouchID to not function properly even though the home button itself may work.

    Just use the phone as a WIFI device and use Magic Jack.

    No problemo. All the iPhones that I own are all used only for WIFI uses. I use my home phone for ringing peeps and talking.
