My Problem

I have a selection of Apple products and it seem each has at least one crazy type of screw or needs some odd tool. After years fo frustration I ordered a Pro tool set. It's great but I'm still missing the screw driver for the iPhone 4s.

My Fix

The first repair job was to replace an iPhone 3g front glass. The parts from iFixit were perfect and it only took 10 minutes to follow the online instruction and finish the job.

My Advice

If you order the pro tech base tool kit - order the iphone 4s screwdriver because it's not included

My Problem

Classic story: iPhone (without a case) fell out of pocket onto the pavement and front glass was shattered. Screen protector in place and held glass together.

My Fix

All went well except the new 'button' doesn't work well. Takes multiple pushes to work. Having the screen protector on meant I could haul the glass out in one piece with a suction cup.

My Advice

Without the screen protector holding the glass fragments in place, removing the glass would have been a real mess. I tried removing the glass from the 'frame' (heating the adhesive) so I could just order the glass alone but I warped the frame. I would skip even trying this and just order the "assembly" (glass + frame) instead, even though it is more expensive. Save yourself the grief!

The connectors for the screen, button, speaker, LCD are very tiny and required patience to reconnect. Don't lose your patience and force them. If aligned, two should 'snap' into place and the third 'clamps' when you move the latch mechanism.
