    Default Swapping motherboard of two Verizon S4


    I was just wondering, Is it possible to swap 2 motherboards from two exact S4 ? (both from Verizon) ?
    The reason I'm asking this is that I have broken my current Verizon S4 glass ...
    BUT I have an my old S4 (also from verizon) that had a motherboard problem (that's why I changed phone in the firs place) and this one is in perfect state (no broken glass etc...)

    SO I was wondering maybe I can take out the motherboard of my broken Glass S4 and put it in my old non broken glass S4?
    Is this going to work ?

    Sure, basically your just swapping the screen out. Mother board and Sim are the same.

    It would be much easier to swap screens than motherboards.

    If you need to swap boards, then you'll need to swap the stickers for serial numbers and other info.

    I've done this many times on several different phones.

    I have the same issue. I swapped the motherboards but now the phone wont turn on or anything. It's a paperweight now. Any thoughts?
