Typical teardown treatment performed on iPhone 3G S

Typical teardown treatment performed on iPhone 3G S
It's no surprise that Rapid Repair would be on hand for the launch of the iPhone 3G S and give it their usual special treatment. Not every device will warrant a full step-by-step instructions on how to carefully take apart a device ever so carefully. The iPhone 3G S got that specific treatment – so now you can see in glory the inner workings of it. The team over at Rapid Repair got their hands on one at a midnight opening over at an Orange Boutique in France. From there, they quickly photographed and recorded for all the world to see their crafty operation of another iPhone device. Just keep in mind to have the proper tools they mention on their site at hand if you plan on performing the same procedure.

Can someone tell me why it took the 3rd Gen iPhone to allow video? LTE w/MIFI FTW

Amazing... That looks exactly like another teardown they did... What was it though? Was it the Storm? No... Was it the Instinct? No... THAT'S RIGHT! It was the iPhone 3G, because it's the exact same! Wow, I didn't think I was going to remember it there for a minute... I mean, I'd love to pay an extra $100 for an "S" on the end of the phone... Absurdity...

What Verizon phone has that much memory for the same price??? Oh, my bad... Verizon gives you a card slot so they can rape you even more, lol.

Oh sure, lots of logic in that one "theman," minus the fact that you can just as easily buy a microsd card from any other retailer in the world, and guess what? Verizon gets no money off that! Oh, and if you want to discuss price with memory, you're really barking up the wrong tree. I'm not a Verizon fanboy, in fact, I hate Verizon, but I hate Apple and all of its products more, so I'll explain why your ridiculous statement means nothing. If I buy an iPhone, I have to pay $30/month for the data plan, so the real price of the iPhone is $199.99+$720 (which is $30*24). Yeah, that's an AWESOME deal, $720 for 16GB's?!?! YYEEEEEAAAHHHH!! Well, I could go with, not just Verizon, but ANY other carrier, not require a data plan, and if you do want one, for a regular phone it's $15/month, so with all that extra money (somewhere in the ballpark of $500), I'm sure I could afford to buy a memory card. But I guess paying almost $1,000 for a cell phone isn't raping though, because it's not rape if you're stupid enough to consent to it.
