Default Replacement motherboard

My phone's charging port is on its last leg. I figured it would be easiest just to purchase a new motherboard. Would this mobo need to be a t999 mobo or can it be att/international

You dont have to replace the motherboard cause as I think its not all together just replace the charging port



Here's the part on amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0093FHMZE/..._SuC2sb1JNC4S9
[Should be an easy fix bro (;]

The s3 requires a rigorous soldering job to replace it unlike the s2
here is a picture of the mobo which you can see it's not just changing a section connected by a ribbon connector. http://www.chip.de/ii/1/5/5/9/3/6/3/...15d86d3627.jpg

I just ordered a wireless charging kit and will charge my phone using that and transferring data will have to be done wireless. If I absolutely need a chord I can hold it secure with a rubber band lol.

This is how you would take apart you galaxy SIII, the att and tmobile are identical inside so this would be the same process, in case you're not too sure on how to take apart your SIII
