Steve! I just got some headphones for my iPhone, so now I can call you while driving! Heck, I'm driving right now!

That's great, Ted. Where you goin'?

Am I 'glowing'? No I'm not glowing—Are you mocking me?

Ted, I said where are you going?

I'm NOT glowing, Steve. Geez, man. I was going to drop off this apple pie at your house, but I'm not liking your sarcasm.

An apple PIE?

Oh so now I'm high? Well you can forget about this apple pie!

Don't do that, Ted Milly!

No, YOU'RE dead to me. This friendship is over.

My Problem

My headphone jack had been loose for months. I decided to give repairing it a shot before shelling out for a new phone.

My Fix

It was a 7/10. I fixed what I intended to fix. The part that came in was sufficient, and I thought the guide was pretty good. The resolution of the pictures could have been a lot better (which conversely could have helped me quite a bit). The problem I had was I couldn't tell the orientation of the mute button when it was supposed to go back in, so I spent half an hour trying to fit it in, with the incorrect alignment. Even after that, there weren't any good instructions (even in the comments) as to how to align the mute button back in place. That was pretty annoying.

The guide also didn't tell me some key steps that I thought would have been useful. Removing the volume buttons from the old yellow ribbon was super tough, and not very clear. I did it just because it made logical sense, and because of how old my phone was, it was pretty tough.

My Advice

For some reason after doing the repair, my iMessage wouldn't work for some people. I cannot explain this at all. I had to reset my network settings on my iPhone for it to work again.

My Problem

Would not power on or off using power button

My Fix

Following directions, repair went great. Be prepared for it to take at least two hours, have a good lighting source and a safe place to store very small screws. Cable itself is somewhat difficult to work with.

My Advice

The hardest part is the mute switch. There is a small pad that needs to be positioned correctly on the external plastic switch body and the mute switch needs to fit into a small opening in the external plastic switch body. I could never get it right until I used a tiny bit of glue from the battery to hold the pad in place and to hold the switch in the correctly aligned position. After that, no problem.

My Problem

Front panel cracked and headphone jack was dead.

My Fix

Hard and took alot of patience

My Advice

The instructions are good but you really need to remember where everything goes. (NO INTERRUPTIONS)

My Problem

The headphonejack, the mutebutton and the on/off switch were out of order.

My Fix

The process was quite clear (except the mute-switch) but to get those tiny screws back into place was terrible, used one hour for one screw near the muteswitch.. I found out that I needed a little magnet to let the screw hang under the philips screwdriver. I took the bike, full speed, to a hobby/model shop in my neighbourhood in Oslo and they gave me a tiny magnet, 4mm x 2mm x 1mm, I got it just before closingtime on saturday and I could finish the repair within half an hour. The magnet is small enough not to disturb and strong enough to make the screwdriver magnetic.

I could not repair the nutebutton, This part is complicated and the instruction and pictures could be better and more clear

My Advice

Together with the screwdriver you could sell such a little magnet. The screws are very easily to remove when taking apart and as easily to get back into place when the magnet sticks to the screwdriver just 1 or 2 cm above the screw. I would never have managed without.. ..or loosing my temper completely.

My Problem

My wife's iPhone3G thrown by my son, and the switch physically broken.

My Fix

I'm Japanese and live in Japan. So I have imported the necessary parts first. After that, Using this site, and one by one to repair. It's a little difficult to repair for me, but finally I was success to fix.

My Advice

I think most important point is to using double-sided tape.

My Problem

old jack - no more connection

My Fix

very good. needed some handlenses to see what I was doing. On-off switch is a bit of a puzzle (orientation of the 'handle') and orientation of the mute switch was trial and error. Also not clear what protective film could be removed and what had to stay.

My Advice

Just your website. Fairly clear instructions

My Problem

My on/off button was not working and in order to replace this part, you must replace the ribbon cable to the on/off, headphone, mute and volume buttons.

My Fix

The install was much more difficult then I anticipated mostly do to a lack of complete instruction. When you read the guide it tells you how to remove the ribbon. However, it does not mention the need to peel and apply the small adhesive strips that a located on the ribbon cable.

My Advice

It is important to notice all of the self-adhesive location before reassembly, since they are required to get the components to stay in place.
